Hello!

I'd first like to send a special thank you to those of you who were able to join us for the live session with Jacqueline M. Baker and Grand Valley State University admissions yesterday morning! If you couldn't attend live due to your school schedule, DRDFS understands and wants school/class time to be your first priority.

The recording and all the materials you need to complete the virtual visit are included in this newsletter and can also be found in the Google Classroom. Remember, you must complete the evaluation to be counted for participation!

There are many unique options when it comes to housing at GVSU!
