I attended Grand Valley State for the 1972/3 and ‘73/4 academic years (back then it was called Grand Valley State Colleges). I left in ’74 and didn’t finish my BA until the 90s at Wayne State but I have a soft spot in my heart for the GVSC (oops GVSU) Lakers.
Lake Michigan Hall was one of the original 1960s buildings on campus. I had a number of classes there.
The original dorms were built to conform to the shape of a ravine that traversed and split the campus. Navigating the halls of this squiggly building after returning from the bar was difficult.
The ravine bisected the campus. You had to cross this bridge to get from the dorms to class.
Not all of the buildings are old. This is the Student Services Center. It wasn’t there when I was hangin’ out.
There are a number of sculptures on campus.
I spent way too much time lying in the sun next to this pond and not near enough in the library just beyond it.
As I walked to the far end of campus I was dismayed to see that they were tearing down my apartment from my first year there. Probably not a bad thing though, since I seem to remember that it was condemned when I lived in it.
