College can be fun, overwhelming and exciting all at once. There are 25,000 new people you could meet, there are almost 500 possible clubs you could join and there are hundreds of classes you can take. Being a first-year Laker is one of the greatest thing because there are so many things, people and opportunities at your disposal. 

With so many possibilities, it can be hard to narrow down what you want to do. For your convenience, below is a Grand Valley State University Bucket List for new Lakers to help guide students to the fun, the necessary and the ambitious things all students should try to accomplish during their first year here at GVSU. Good Luck, and go Lakers!
