CSAL 20 Year Anniversary

Twenty years ago the first cohort of CSAL students arrived on campus. Over three hundred seventy five students have graduated from the program and they have found their way to over one hundred ninety-three campuses and over ten organizations in thirty-six states.

To celebrate we will be hosting the 20 Year Celebration on June 12-14, 2015. The weekend’s festivities will include a welcome reception, campus tours, recognition dinner, and other fun activities. Please mark you calendar and look for more information in the coming months. 

Be sure we have your contact information so you don't miss out on any of the information by updating our database at  http://www.gvsu.edu/csal/alumdirectory-aluminfo.htm.

Class of 2016

We are excited to welcome the 2016 cohort! In February over 110 candidates applied for graduate assistantships. On July 28, 2014, 31 first year graduate assistants will be joining 26 second year graduate assistants for orientation. We will also have eleven CSAL students participating in the Mentorship Program (designed to enhance the experience of CSAL students without assistantships). Thank you to all of our current students and alumni for promoting GVSU as a great place for learning and professional preparation!
