How did you learn about DSP?
I ran into Delaney Carroll at Hollister while she was working and I was wearing a GVSU sweatshirt and we got talking and she told me about DSP, I had just declared my major as business and wanted to get involved in something, then I went to a meet the chapter and the rest is history.
Why did you join DSP?
I really wanted to get involved in something at school and when I went to meet the chapter I knew it was a really great opportunity to not only grow personally and professionally but to develop lifelong friendships and be a part of something greater than myself.
Why did you choose Grand Valley?
I went to Hope College first semester of my freshman year and it just wasn’t it so I explored other options and the first time I visited GV I knew it was a great fit. Everything about GV is great in my opinion; the campus, being so close to GR, all the resources and opportunities.
