While many Grand Valley State University students head home to their families for the long Labor Day weekend, there are still quite a few that stick around the Grand Rapids area.
As Grand Valley State University students and faculty adjust to a new semester, the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Resource Center is planning events to welcome new and returning students back to campus. Colette Seguin Beighley, LGBT resource center director, said the events are designed to, “draw people to the center and to welcome students.”
Grand Valley State University has been working closely with the Grand Rapids Public Schools to create the Grand Rapids Public Museum School, opening in the fall of 2015. The museum school will hold class in the Grand Rapids Public Museum as well as on 54 Jefferson St. SE, allowing students to use museum artifacts for a creative, hands-on learning experience.
