Four-day Summer Immersion Experience will help students learn about campus, connect with resources

Aug. 4, 2022, GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. – A new, four-day Summer Immersion Experience will help newly enrolled, or first-year Grand Rapids Community College students learn more about campus and connect with resources to help them be successful.

The free event runs 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Aug. 15 to 18, and was created by the college's Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion. Events will be located in room 132 of the GRCC Learning Library Center, 140 Ransom Ave NE, in Grand Rapids.

“The Summer Immersion Experience will be an exceptional opportunity to get a solid GRCC foundation before you begin class," ODEI Assistant Director Jamillya Hardley said. "Some main goals include building a strong cohort of students through fellowship, learning how to navigate GRCC as a new student, and developing rising GRCC leaders!"

Students will be part of a cohort experience intended to carry through their time at GRCC. They'll learn about student engagement programs, including ALAS, Brother 2 Brother, and NIA, receive one-on-one support, be introduced to resources, and participate in culturally affirming experiences supporting their educational journey through GRCC.

Students can meet GRCC faculty and staff members, build critical college skills and be confident to start the school year.

Participants are required to register by Aug. 10 at
