Thriving Community for Arts, Entertainment and Relaxation

Grand Rapids is the second-largest city in Michigan. It boasts many destination attractions, such as the internationally acclaimed Meijer Gardens and Sculpture Park, and ArtPrize, a 19-day annual global art competition that attracts over 200,000 visitors to the city each fall. Music also plays a huge role in the arts energy in Grand Rapids, including such staples as the GRandJazz Fest in August, the Monday night Jazz in the Park series, the Wednesday night Blues Concert Series and the Meijer Gardens music series all summer long. In addition, the campus is located only 40 minutes from the beautiful beaches of Lake Michigan, allowing for convenient day trips and get-away weekends.
