Whether you’re at home or on campus, there are ways you can get involved with Grand Rapids Community College. Despite the pandemic that has been raging on, the Campus Activities Board (CAB) has events, projects, and meetups that anyone can be a part of.
From Welcome Week to the Finals Relaxer, at-home DIYs to banquets, CAB plans exciting events that can help students feel connected and included. The best part is, it’s free for all GRCC students.
CAB will be hosting Friendship Day on Feb. 24. Students will be able to make friendship bracelets, eat some complimentary snacks, and make new friends.
The Campus Activities Board knows that life for students is difficult. That’s why they offer these events. CAB wants to provide a break from classes, build community, and connect with students.
“Whether students are at home or on campus, we care about their wellbeing,” said Vice President of CAB, Paige Bodine. CAB also wants students to feel like they have a community that they can go to when the going gets rough.
Not only is student life difficult, but with the added pressure of the pandemic, it can be overwhelming. Thankfully, CAB offers activities that aren’t all in person. Be on the lookout for activities that you can do at home. In the past, CAB has given out DIY kits through the mail, they have had virtual zoom meetings with speakers, and there have been giveaways.
Of course, there will be more events in the future, but they have not been planned yet. Keep an eye out for other activities that students can be a part of. While these activities and events are always free to GRCC students, some activities require students to sign up beforehand. Some activities might involve limited supplies and or space.
