Come Celebrate Friday, April 18 at 5 p.m.

The End of the Winter Semester Graduate Student Celebration and Awards Ceremony is Friday, April 18, beginning at 5 p.m. Please come and join your fellow students, faculty, the Graduate Dean, and the Graduate and Professional Student Association (GPSA) to celebrate and recognize the academic achievements of graduating students. GPSA will also be awarding the Graduate Faculty Mentor Award. All graduate students and their families are invited.

The evening will begin with hors d’oeuvres and a cash bar at 5 p.m. in the Steelcase Foundation Lecture Hall, Room 123, in the Cook-DeVos Center for Health Sciences on Michigan Street. Then at approximately 6 p.m. the awards ceremony will begin in the Hager Auditorium, Room 119, in the Cook-DeVos Center for Health Sciences.

Limited parking is available in the ramp under the building after 5 p.m., enter from Lafayette Ave. There is also a surface lot, the Crawford Lot, available off of Sinclair Ave. NE near the corner of Michigan and College. We encourage graduate students who wish to park near the CHS building to ride together with their families. In addition, the CHS Shuttle Bus, Dash to the Hill, runs between the Seward Parking Ramp/DeVos Center and Cook-DeVos CHS until 6 p.m. After which the Weekend Connector, Bus #50, services CHS, Central Station, DeVos Center, and Allendale every hour. For bus schedules, go to http://www.gvsu.edu/bus.

If the GVSU parking lots are full, you may also choose to pay for parking. In which case Spectrum Health has multiple lots in the area including one on Michigan Street, the same side of the street as CHS, with visitor parking available all evening for $4.
