Discuss the laws around drinking

The group is inviting students to attend and share their opinions on the laws surrounding the drinking age. Lakers for Liberty will also be sharing the rationale behind the current laws and why they still stand.

Students will be asked why they think the drinking age in the U.S. is 21 and if they think the government should reevaluate these laws. If they do desire reevaluation, they’ll be asked to explain why.

Help keep GVSU clean at the football game 

During the football game on Saturday, Sept. 30, students can volunteer to help clean up the stadium.

Volunteers will help game attendees sort their trash into the right bins so it can be taken care of properly. They will be given cheat sheets to help determine which items can be thrown in what bin as well as gloves and a free concessions voucher.
