Celebrate homecoming week with CAB

It’s homecoming week on campus and the Campus Activities Board has a plethora of events planned to help students get into the spirit. The first event is a pumpkin painting event on Monday, Oct. 17. The event is in the Kirkhof Center room 2215/16 from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. Pumpkins and painting supplies will be supplied for free to those who attend.

On Tuesday, students are invited to decorate their cars with GVSU swag. There will be supplies handed out from the Office of Student Life for free from 9 a.m.-5 p.m. The office is located in Kirkhof room 1110. If students don’t have their own personal cars, they can pick up supplies to decorate their friends’ cars.

There will also be a scavenger hunt on the Allendale campus taking place on Tuesday, where students will be able to hunt down dorm room essentials and other prizes. Hints to the locations of the prizes will be posted on @gvsucab on Instagram in the morning.

Tuesday at 7 p.m. the homecoming pep rally will take place in the Kirkhof lobby. The football team, marching band and cheer team will be there. The homecoming court will be introduced and the first 100 people to show up will receive an exclusive homecoming themed GVSU shirt to wear to the football game on Saturday.

On Wednesday students will be able to paint foam fingers to take to the homecoming game in Kirkhof room 2270 at  3:30 p.m.

GV repair clinic to help aid students

On Tuesday the repair clinic will be open once more to help students with all of their needs.

From 6-8 p.m. the clinic will help repair broken glasses, sew rips and tears, replace buttons, fix jammed zippers and more. The clinic is run by student volunteers as well as faculty and staff. So far the clinic has repaired over 450 items.

The clinic will take place in the Holton-Hooker Multipurpose room and is free for all students. There will be snacks and small giveaways at the clinic as well.

Students are able to drop their items off at the clinic ahead of time if they have class. The clinic is asking those who need to do so email [email protected] with their information.
