Grand Rapids Community College Student Alliance held their last meeting on Thursday and discussed upcoming goals for the fall.  

One of the goals Student Alliance had was to create official positions for Student Alliance members who attend each meeting for their student organizations.

Most of your are representing your clubs have been at every single meeting, and I really appreciate that,” said Student Alliance President Cale Merdzinski. “I really want you to get something on your resume out of this. I want the next e-board to consider making these senator positions and having one assigned representative from each group come and anyone else that wants to come.”

This will help groups become more organized and keep track of each student organization’s attendance and not worry about someone not showing up for allocation requests and presentations.

Last week, the GRCC Phi Thetta Kappa chapter went to the PTK 2018 Catalyst annual convention and received several major awards.

PTK President, Morgan Brown won the Orlowski Candidate Award. This award is given to the International Officer candidate who best represents the ideals of PTK. Brown received a $1,500 scholarship along with the award. Brown and Marcus Barissi won third place for the Catalyst video competition and received a $100 scholarship. Barissi was recognized for receiving the $5,000 Pearson Scholarship. The GRCC PTK Officer Team was recognized as a distinguished officer team. There were 15 teams recognized. Advisor of GRCC PTK, Lynnae Selberg received the Outstanding Chapter Advisor of 15 Recipients. The GRCC PTK chapter also received several awards for their Honors and Action project.

Since it is the end of the year, the Black Africana Student Union, Campus Activities Board and Hispanic Student Organization will host an “End of the Year. Hurray!” event for GRCC students and student organizations.

The event will be held at Kentwood Fun Spot from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. on May 1. Admission is free for the first 100 participants which includes a free skate rental, unlimited pizza and drinks from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Anyone who arrives after the first 100 will have to pay $20 and will receive all that is included. Participants should bring their GRCC student ID for identification and inform Fun Spot that you are apart of the event.
