The Niemeyer Awards nominations are due to the CLAS Dean’s Office (mclenitt@gvsu.edu) by January 21st.  For more information, timeline and Nomination Form, go to the Provost website http://www.gvsu.edu/provost/glenn-a-niemeyer-awards-5.htm.  

2. Grandparents, Grandkids, and Grand Valley (G3) Summer Camp Registration Is Open!

G3 is a residential summer camp program for grandparents and grandchildren (ages 8-12) to come together for a three day educational experience.  Families will spend their time together on the Grand Valley State University campus for three days and two nights sleeping in the living center apartments and eating in the common dining halls along with college students and others on campus.

The dates for G3 Camp are June 24 - 26, 2014 on the Grand Valley Allendale campus. Housing, meals, and sessions are all inclusive. Registration is open until April 30, 2014.  Visit www.gvsu.edu/g3  and register by February 28 to get the early bird rate!

Class sessions are taught by GVSU faculty and staff and will be held during the day in the campus academic buildings. GVSU faculty and staff expose camp participants to a wide range of options and people may choose their sessions based upon their interests.  In the evening, there will be various activities that families may choose to attend. On the final day, a graduation luncheon ceremony will be held.

Our goal is to offer educational experiences and activities that will strengthen the bond between generations and facilitate creating many positive memories together. Daily sessions will involve grandparents and grandkids experiencing adventures in a variety of the sciences, mathematics, art, poetry, music, and law enforcement, just to name a few.

This summer camp is sponsored by the Regional Math and Science Center and the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences (CLAS). More information is available at www.gvsu.edu/g3 or by calling the Regional Math and Science Center at (616) 331-2267.
