GV Gamma Phi Beta hosts tournament to benefit 'Girls on the Run'

Maintaining a healthy and active lifestyle while studying at college can prove to be a challenge. With this in mind, Grand Valley State University's Gamma Phi Beta chapter hosted the first annual GVSU "Moonball: Blacklight Volleyball Tournament." The Moonball event, which was held Saturday, Feb. 25, gave participating teams the chance to compete for a monetary donation to their philanthropy of choice. Proceeds from the event went to the Girls on the Run charity, the sorority’s philanthropic partner.

GVSU fraternity to spend Valentine's Day raising funds for childhood cancer

For some people, Valentine’s Day means indulging sweets and spending the night alone, while others might be first in line at the supermarket with a box full of chocolates and giant stuffed animal that says “be mine.” However, Grand Valley State University’s Sigma Phi Epsilon (SigEp) plans to celebrate the day by dropping carnations on students’ doorsteps and serenading them from a secret, or not-so-secret, admirer.

ATO continues to ‘walk hard’ for MS research

The term “university fundraiser” often brings up images of social gatherings or crowded rallies. For Grand Valley State University’s Alpha Tau Omega fraternity however, fundraising is no clean-cut effort. The group is gearing up for their annual “ATO Walks Hard” event, which donates proceeds to the National Multiple Sclerosis Foundation.

Keeping calm under stress

While midterms consume the schedules of students across campus, personal care often becomes less important. Students who cannot find time to check back into reality and prioritize relaxation, often find stress building up along with a multitude of health concerns to navigate.
