And win over a campus with kindness. 

A recent GVSU student group visit was required for a communications class. We gave them a tour and answered questions about either non-profit work, communications or related topics. Always the same. ALWAYS fun!

Have you ever experienced a time when you needed someone?

I mean, REALLY needed someone? 

You didn’t need them to say the right thing or tell you that things would get better.
