Join the CCPS Undergraduate Advising Center as we again help to raise funds for the Battle of the Valleys Challenge. Since 2007, our office has collected/donated over $1000 to the BOTV!
Beginning Monday November 11th through Friday November 15th we will be a collection point for donations toward this worthy cause. Donations made in the advising center will be matched up to $100. We have been challenged to collect $1 for every faculty and staff member in the college...help us make that happen!
Battle of the Valleys (BOTV) has become a long-standing tradition at Grand Valley State University. It works to create a connection between students, alumni, local businesses, and the surrounding community through a friendly competition between our school and our rival, Saginaw Valley State University. The competition helps to develop a sense of pride and gets our students to unite behind a great cause. Each university picks their own local charity to raise money for the week prior to the football game between GVSU and SVSU
The organization selected this year to receive GVSU's donations is SPORTS (Students Providing Opportunities and Recreation Through Sports) an organization created by GVSU junior Tyler Kinch who is pursuing an Athletic Training major with a Nonprofit Administration minor!
This organization's goal is to bring sports to children and through these experiences allow kids to take home positive values such as self confidence, motivation and acceptance that will ultimately better shape who they are as they move through adulthood.
Join the staff of the CCPS Undergraduate Advising Center by wearing the official t-shirt of this year's BOTV on Friday November 15th. The shirts cost just $10 in the bookstore and the money raised through shirt sales goes toward the BOTV challenge.
