  • Grand Haven, MI


This is the first in a series of events intended to give GVSU students an opportunity to spend a day exploring some of the exciting areas beyond our campus.  They are designed with both structured and unstructured exploration and include spending time in both natural & urban settings.  

Participants on the Grand Haven trip will have an opportunity to hike through a classic Michigan dune system at Rosy Mound Natural Area, swim in Lake Michigan, relax on the beach, & explore downtown Grand Haven.  The hike through rosy mound is considered short (less than a mile) but strenuous & involves a number of stairs.  Beyond the hike, your time in Grand Haven will be yours to spend as you choose.  Visit to learn more about your options.
