Going to see Grand Valley football games are one of the things I am looking forward to while at Grand Valley. I enjoy all sorts of outdoor activities such as swimming, running, and biking. I also like meeting new frriends and hanging out with them.

Many of the students at Grand Valley are physically active, resulting in a very active campus. Students at Grand Valley can always be found on the sidewalks long-boarding or playing volleyball in the sand pits. There are also plenty of campus wide events that students participate in. These include Transitions week for the Freshman which serves as a way to get to know fellow classmates, different performances such as comedians and public speakers that Grand Valley hires to perform in our recreation center, and President's Ball which is essentially a prom for college students. The number one recreational activity for the students at Grand Valley is attending the sporting events. The school spirit and pride that students here show is incredible and widespread throughout the entire campus. Students line up for blocks to get into football and basketball games alike. Even coming from a small town high school that was very close and attended every sporting event, I have never experienced a school spirit like there is at Grand Valley.

Grand Valley has a great campus and I know that one of my favorite things to do is to go on walks through the trails on a nice day. Another thing Grand Valley students enjoy doing is taking the bus into town and checking out some of the parks and restaurants in town (a lot happen to have discounts for students). The third thing that Grand Valley students like to do it visit ArtPrize, one of the biggest community art shows in the world.

The recreation center is something that I personally, and a lot of other Lakers enjoy in their free time. It has a nice turf field, and indoor track which allows for year around sports and exercise. Another fun thing to do is the beach volley ball courts located around campus. This gives students an opportunity to meet others, and branch out a little bit. Late night is a restaurant in the Kleiner Commons, and is a great place to hangout with friends and have a little fun in the hectic life of a college goer.

The top 3 things that students who attend GVSU do for fun are: 1. get involved in groups and clubs. This year I am going to do the Yoga club, and Charge; which is when a group of girls get together once a week and workout. They also have nights they hangout together. 2. Attend sporting events! This is a growing activity around campus. I am very excited to attend the football games this year! 3. Explore the ravines! GVSU has a beautiful campus that should be explored! A lot of people like to take trips out in the ravines after the first big snowfall of the year.

The top three things Grand Valley State University students do for fun are to support the basketball and football teams during the fall and winter months. Many students look forward to tailgate with their fellow classmates where students can meet a vast number of other students and make friends. These sport events also bring a sense of school pride and community that is felt and seen as the teachers and students cheer their teams on. The second thing students do for fun is to visit Grand Rapids, which is a few miles east from main campus. There the students can enjoy the night life, the museums, the diverse selection of restaurants, and the different and vast array of festivals. The third thing is visit the lake shore and enjoy a day at the beach with friends and classmates.

The main thing students do for fun is play intramural sports! There's nothing more fun than some friendly coed competition like football, basketball, or quidditch. Also very popular is setting up hammocks and relaxing between classes. Another great thing is tossing around a frisbee during a sunny (or winter!) day. Throwing around a frisbee is basically an open invite for anyone around, and you always end up meeting different people who are just hanging out!

One thing that almost every student at Grand Valley takes advantage of is our brand new library. It is a very popular stop to hang out, socialize, and also get work done. There are high-traffic areas where people can converse, and there are also quiet areas for students to work. Another popular facet of life at Grand Valley are all the clubs and organizations available to join. From intramural sports clubs all the way to the Civil War Club, there is definitely something for everyone to enjoy. One of the many other activities students enjoy at Grand Valley is participation in the vibrant Greek life. Every Fall, campus buzzes with the excited energy that rush brings about. Many people I know rushed their Freshman year, and not one of them regrets it. They have a great time with the new friends they've made, and many of my friends boast about all the amazing philanthropic work they're been able to do with their houses.

Students at Grand Valley State University are very inclusive and welcoming. As a freshman, I’m proud to be part of such a great family and happy to call myself a Grand Valley Laker. One of the most fun things students here do is participate in many clubs. With a wide variety of choices, I was able to join a few clubs I felt passionate about and connected with many new people. Another great thing I’ve done at Grand Valley so far has been to support my fellow Lakers at football games. It’s always a blast seeing the amount of people that show up to cheer on our friends. The most fun thing to do here, in my opinion, is enjoy the campus. There are so many beautiful places to sit and read, or grab a few friends and throw Frisbee, or just put up a hammock and relax. Regardless of the enjoyment, there’s a little bit for everyone to enjoy.

At Grand Valley, a lot of students do not have a ton of time to ourselves because we are busy studying. However, when we are not busy, students tend to explore Grand Rapids, Michigan, our neighboring city; explore the ravines that are located on campus; or drive out to Grand Haven, Michigan and enjoy the lakefront whether it be snowy or sunny.

Grand Valley is located close to the Lake Michigan, Downtown Grand Rapids, and a lot of fun things to explore. There are a lot of things to do, but the top three would be; 1. Going to Lake Michigan, whether its spring, summer, fall, or winter, the beach is beautiful all year round for pictures and either sledding or swimming. There are so many different beach parks that you can go to Grand Haven or Muskegon or anywhere nearby. But be forewarned you need someone with a car to get there. 2. Exploring Downtown Grand Rapids is an all year round thing. Grand Rapids has so much to offer with Rosa Parks center having an ice rink for half the year, great food places, great bars, great musicals or programs at the Devos center, and Art Prize in the fall. You are right on the river and there is always something to do. The best thing is as a student at GVSU you get free rides on the Rapid buses in the area and you can go anywhere in the greater Grand Rapids area. 3. On-Campus fun. The actual campus itself has plenty to do. In the main building Kirkhof a lot of people hang out and watch movies in the theater, play pool, play video games, or even get some snacks and coffee. Kirkhoff also has plenty of rooms to hold events or hang out with friends and use the projectors for study sessions or movie nights. Also they hold a lot of different campus events which are fun. Sporting Events are also a huge thing at GV, from baseball to football to basketball and more, students get a lot of free things and food from the events.

  1. Volunteer through over three hundred different clubs to help others in the community
  2. Sporting Events: Students attend sporting events by cheering on the lakers in the student section.
  3. Go to the gym, students realize how important it is to stay healthy, so many students enjoy the rec center which has a workout area, weightlifting room, rock climbing stations, a pool, and dance studios

Students here really like to spend time in the gym and rec center, there are alot of places to hangout and have fun with friends while getting some exercise, especially in the winter. Students also like to go to downtown Grand Rapids (which is nearby) and explore. It's a great area and in the winter there is an outdoor ice rink to skate at with friends. Lastly, students here at GVSU like to go to the mall in the next town over. You can drive or take the bus, but the mall is huge and also has a movie theater, so there is plenty of things to do there if you want to spend a day.

Grand Valley is surrounded by beautiful woods that are just waiting to be explored. One of the most fun things to do is get together with a couple friends, pack a lunch, and head out for the day to explore the trails surrounding the campus. For people who may not be into nature so much, downtown Grand Rapids is easily the place to be. Its less than 30 minutes away and features events such as Art Prize and Festival of the Arts, and beautiful year round parks and activities. There are also plenty of clubs, bars and music venues that come alive at night. Another thing you can't miss out on at Grand Valley is the football games. It is just an event everyone has to experience at least once. The atmosphere is like nothing else; the crowd is deafening with cheer, the air is filled with every sort of spot food imaginable, and you'd have to try pretty hard to not enjoy the action packed games.

The first thing students at Grand Valley do for fun is go to Laker Football games, the first game of the season is always the best, this year the entire student section was filled and even the overflow section for students was filled! The second thing that GV students do is go to Peppino's on Thursday night. Peppino's is a restaurant near GV and on Thursday nights they get a DJ and host a dance party. It's only $5 for entry and they have deals for their food that night too. The best part however is they have a shuttle system that you can call to pick you up so students who don't have cars can go too! A third thing GV students do for fun is play intramural sports. GV has tons of options for sports to play and it really fun. There are always so many teams so its always really fun!

GVSU has a long list of things to do for fun that can be applied to students from all walks of life. The first activity that most students tend to gravitate towards, is athletics. School spirit is something that Lakers hold close to their hearts so both the athletes and the fans enjoy sporting events. Second, the student organizations bring a lot of life and fun to the campus. With over 350 registered organizations, you're sure to find one that fits your liking. The beauty of student organizations at GVSU is the fact that you can start your own club with a minimum of four people, if you don't see your interest. Lastly, Greek life is one of the favorite options for fun. Within the organization, members create everlasting bonds and take part in philanthropy. The fact that students pick an activity that gives back, for fun shows the character and heart of the students at Grand Valley.
