Favorite thing: The latest addition to GVSU's presence in downtown Grand Rapids is the opening of the Center for Health Sciences. GVSU has strong Nursing and Physical Therapy programs, yet they were in cramped quarters on the main campus in Allendale, MI. The move to CHS was necessary, but will be beneficial as well due to it's location near Spectrum Health's Butterworth Hospital complex in addition to the VanAndel Institute medical research facility.
Favorite thing: GVSU expanded into the city of Grand Rapids in approximately 1987 with the opening of the LV Eberhard Center. The University's presence in Grand Rapids was expanded further in 2000 with the opening of the Pew Campus shown in the previous tip.
Grand Valley State University
Favorite thing: This is where I went to college, and it's quite a dynamic university.
GVSU has built itself up in a tremendous fashion, from fewer than 5000 students in 1980 to now over 20000 students across 6 campuses.
