College advice for students sought for special exhibit

Posted on

Beginning a college career can be an intimidating time for first year students, but a new exhibit coming to the Mary Idema Pew Library aims to relieve this stress by offering advice from the Grand Valley community.

Before the “Oh, the Places You’ll Go” exhibit opens in August, Grand Valley faculty, staff, students and alumni are invited to share advice, reflections, memories and encouraging messages for first year or new students related to the college experience by filling out this form:

“College is a place of endless possibilities in terms of personal and intellectual growth. Our goals are to provide new students with a welcoming experience and generate a sense of community and good will among contributors and exhibit participants,” said Emily Frigo, University Libraries first year initiatives coordinator.

The deadline for submissions is July 1. For more information, contact Frigo at or (616) 331-7343.
