Parents and family members are invited to join us for the 40th Annual Calvin Alumni Golf Tournament at beautiful Pilgrim's Run Golf Club in Pierson, Michigan. Every year great golf is combined with a great purpose: raising funds for the Grand Rapids area alumni chapter scholarships. Your participation every year helps Calvin students every day.

The following is information from William Corner, director of campus safety:
This year the parking permit price has increased to $75 (still far lower than any other college--last year GVSU charged $300, Cornerstone $120, and Hope $225), but if you register by September 6 you can save $25! Parking permits will be available for pick-up starting August 24 at the campus safety office (upstairs in the mail and print building just east of the Lake Drive entrance). During the first week of class (September 8-11) permits will also be available for pick-up at Johnny’s from 11:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.

Here is some information from financial services as you prepare for the school year:
The Student Treats program sends treats and goodies to students for a birthday, special event or as an "anytime" surprise to remind your student of your love and support. Anyone can order individual treats or "A Year of Treats" which saves time and money. The deadline to order either the "Year of Treats" or first seasonal treat, "Pizza and a Movie" is Tuesday, September 15. The "Pizza and a Movie" treat features a certificate for a large, two-topping pizza (from a favorite locally-owned pizzeria), a Blockbuster gift card for a free movie rental and a bag of microwavable popcorn. Find out more on the Student Treats site.

It's never too early to start planning for Siblings Weekend. Siblings Weekend is fun for siblings, cousins, young friends, and other guests who come to visit a Calvin student! Of course you can visit anytime, but Siblings Weekend is geared for kids. All meals are included in the registration, and a variety of events and opportunities are available.
The pre-college programs office welcomed nine students to Calvin's first Summer Academy, June 28 to July 22. This residential immersion program modeled after the successful, long-running Entrada program, offers high school students from around the country the opportunity to try on college academics and residence life, while studying one college course for credit. Not only did these students knock CAS 101off their college course load, but they also tested their readiness for post-high school study, became a part of the Calvin community living as full-time students in campus residences, and now return to their high schools confident in research and oral presentation to cap off their high school studies.
