Kick of the semester with yoga

On Jan. 9, GVSU students can unwind from their first day of the semester with yoga.

Every Monday, Recreation and Wellness will be holding a yoga session in partnership with the Counseling Center for students to take part in.

The sessions aim to help students focus on their mental and physical health by using yoga to improve their concentration, aid in emotional stability, reduce stress and anxiety and increase their sense of peace.

The sessions will take place in the Fieldhouse dance studio in room 160 and run for an hour starting at 4 p.m.

Classes are typically held in the same place and time, but are subject to change. Those interested in attending can double-check the Mindbody app for updates.

Get connected at Campus Life Night

On Friday, Dec. 13, different groups on campus will be gathering in the Fieldhouse to give students the opportunity to find their communities on campus.

With over 300 different on-campus groups and clubs in attendance, students can go from table to table to find a group that fits their interests. Different sororities and fraternities will also be present, giving students a chance to get to know the mission of each Greek life group to find the right fit for them.

In addition to student organizations, there will be different campus departments in attendance such as the career center and counseling center. There will be several local businesses and nonprofits attending as well, giving students a chance to win free swag and other prizes.

Bowl with Best Buddies

Best Buddies will be gathering this Saturday at Hudsonville Lanes to bowl from 12:45 to 2:30 p.m.

Anyone is welcome to attend this event. All that is required to join is that those planning on going bring their best friend.

The goal of the group is to form one-on-one connections with another person. The group serves those with Down syndrome, autism, Fragile X, Williams syndrome, cerebral palsy, traumatic brain injury and other undiagnosed disabilities.

There is an $11 fee to bowl.
