    The main campus of Grand Valley is located close to downtown Grand Rapids, a bustling and vibrant city with a thriving arts culture. There are great restaurants, good shopping, and events of all natures, including the city-wide art festival ArtPrize during August and September.

    I commonly go to the gym to work out, or play pick up games of volleyball and basketball. There are countless clubs at Grand Valley, so there is never a dull moment. I plan to invest my time into an intramural sport and music group next year.

    Allendale is just outside of Grand Rapids, there are plenty of things always going on in Grand Rapids such as life in color. Specifically in Allendale it is pretty quite. Half off apps at Applebee's is probably a college students favorite.

    You can watch a movie on campus, participate in activities, but not much of a party school so you will have to go off campus if you are looking for one.

    Join an organization! This will surely introduce you to others, and give you some time away from studying. There are many options to choose from, just find the one that fits you best. Plus, downtown Grand Rapids is a quick trip away, giving plenty of more options!

    Grand Valley offers tons of events on campus that are available to all students - commuters included. There are comedy shows, poetry slams, and free food everywhere. GO. You won't regret it.
