3 Upcoming Campus Events You Won’t Want to Miss

Are you looking for ways to get involved on campus or opportunities to grow? There are always lots of great events happening on campus throughout the semester. Here are three upcoming events that you won’t want to miss!

1. Leadership Summit

The Leadership Summit at GVSU is a state-wide premier leadership conference which strives to foster leadership development for undergraduate students, in multidisciplinary aspects of campus life. Featuring a dynamic keynote address, over 30 workshops to select from, a leadership case study competition sponsored by Omicron Delta Kappa, and more, Leadership Summit has something to offer students at every level of leadership!

As Honors Students, leadership is an important skill to develop, and this conference will help you to do just that. Leadership Summit will be held all day on Saturday, February 18, 2017, in the Kirkhof Center on the Allendale Campus. The cost is only $20 for GVSU students. Register now!

2. Student Scholars Day

Do you have a project that you’re proud of and want to share it with others? Then Student Scholars Day is just for you! Held once a year to celebrate the scholarship and creative work performed by GVSU students, the day showcases faculty-mentored work through oral presentations, discussion and panel sessions, fine arts exhibits and performances, and poster presentations.

This year’s Student Scholars Day will take place on Wednesday, April 12, 2017. Student presentations begin at 9:00 a.m. and end at 5:30 p.m. in Henry Hall Atrium, Kirkhof Center, and the Mary Idema Pew Library. Registration is open February 6-24.


You’ve probably seen a few TED Talks throughout your academic years, but did you know that GVSU is hosting their own TEDx event featuring TED-like talks and videos? This year’s theme is “The Blueprints between X and Why.” The speakers will focus on the process, learning while doing, and how there are various and sometimes unknown paths to arrive at a destination (y).

The event will be held on Friday, February 24, 2017, at 5:30 pm in the Cook Dewitt Center. Unless you’ve already registered, tickets for the actual event are sold out, but you can attend a live stream in MIP Library Multipurpose Room (030). Check out the list of speakers!
