Campus View: a community The community of Campus View apartments, townhomes and cottages knows that one of the main things students look for in a home is convenience. After a long day of tests, papers and lectures, the last thing they want is a long commute home. When you live at Campus View, you are living in the closest off-campus housing community to Grand Valley State University’s Allendale campus. When you choose to live with Campus View, you’re never far from home. What makes Campus View different from other off-campus housing is their commitment to their community. Throughout the year, Campus View hosts breakfasts at the Bus Stop serving Einstein bagels, holiday parties, movie nights, craft nights and tons of fitness classes including Insanity and Yoga. “Just this week we kicked off our fall co-ed volleyball league with seven teams of residents competing for the Champion title,” said Brandon Dylstra, CV recreation director. For residents who aren’t interested in athletics, we have plenty of other events such as an Open Mic Night and Wine Glass Decorating Party. Residents are treated as friendly neighbors and are presented with endless opportunities for fun (right in their backyard!) “Our goal is to bring everyone together,” Lynn Gardner, director of community life, said. “We strive to make a living experience filled with inclusion, involvement and a whole lot of fun opportunities exclusive to our residents.” Each GVSU student is different and to cater to that, so are Campus View’s housing options! Students can choose

to live in the cottages, townhomes or apartments, each with their own feel and options of living style variation. This year, residents also have the option to live in and utilize the newly constructed “Cottage Cove” area which includes a year-round hot tub, basketball court, hammock area and grills. Campus View has also upgraded the fitness equipment in the Clubhouse this summer to “keep it a state-of-the-art club so residents can achieve their fitness goals right here,” said Dykstra. Campus View is also conveniently located on the Rapid’s route and provides an exclusive shuttle (CV2GV) for residents from 7:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Have a furry friend? Campus View has updated their pet policy to allow pets under 50 pounds! Additional requirements are available on the Campus View website at www. Heard enough? Ready to move in? Future residents can take advantage of a special offer to secure their unit. Up until Oct. 21, students will receive $100 off their activity fee if they sign their lease within four days of receiving an application from CV. Tours are offered Monday through Friday during normal business hours and limited hours on Saturday. Best tour times are 1:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. during the week and 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday. For more information, contact Campus View at (616) 895-6678 to schedule a tour or ask a question, and visit the website at

Feel at home at Campus West When you chose to live in a Campus West apartment, you are choosing to live in an apartment complex that offers more than just a place to hang your coat; they offer a place to call home away from home. As a family-owned business, they have learned from years of business and know how to cater to the Laker community. Focused on affordability and customer service, Campus West has been a source of off-campus student living since 1988. A lease at Campus West includes not only an updated and well-kept apartment, but a staff that is there to help you through the process of renting an apartment. Jessica Valiquette is a senior at GVSU and this is her second year at Campus West. “The pricing is reasonable, especially when comparing other options in the area,” she said. “I also appreciate how accommodating the office was when I came to them for help.” Campus West understands that being a college student comes along with a lot of stress, late nights and an especially tight budget. That’s why they offer affordable rates as low as

$375 a month, because you shouldn’t have to pay ridiculous rates to be comfortable. Each lease includes on-site tanning, a study lounge, a game room, recycling and trash removal. The apartments are also located on the 37 and 48 bus routes. No more long waits for the bus! Campus West is also conveniently located across from Mully’s Bar and Grill and Cottage Inn Pizza, so you’re never too far away from a good time. Jake Holcomb, a junior at GVSU, is re-signing at Campus West for his third year. “Campus West is such a convenient location,” he said. “With being in the center of the complexes on 48th and also on both bus stops, you can’t find a better location.” If you sign a lease with Campus West before Oct. 21, your administrative and application fees will be waived as well as your parking fee! Stop in any time for a tour or check out www.campuswest. net to find out more about your future home!

Be successful at 48West BY ERIKA TAUKERT 48WEST

Every student goes through phases during the school year. It’s hard when school has you relaxed with no homework one week and then stressed out, drowning in work the next. 48West is here to offer solutions to even the toughest phases of school. Phase 1: Excitement Moving in to your new apartment is such a fun time! Whether you’re living on campus or signed a lease off campus you get to meet all your roommates, reunite with them after the summer and decorate. Welcome Week at Grand Valley State University is a blast! Most students head over to off-campus apartments at night where there’s tons of people to meet. During the day, 48West’s hot tub is definitely the place to be. Phase 2: Countdown It seems like as soon as your professors start assigning homework, your countdown to Thanksgiving break starts. During this time it’s easy to get overwhelmed with everything going on and it’s important to take some time for yourself to relax. You can head over to the 48West theater to join other residents for your favorite TV shows. Phase 3: Break Thanksgiving break comes and goes too quickly but winter break is a well-deserved month off from school. What are you going to do with your break? Make as much money as you can to buy textbooks for winter classes? Go on an exotic vacation? Or stay in Allendale because of work or other reasons? If you’re staying in Allendale, you can hang out in the game

room at 48West From XBox to pool table, darts, Wii and more, there’s something for everyone in the game room. It’s easy to log into Spotify on the iMacs and blast your favorite tunes while beating your buddies at Wii Sports. Phase 4: Winter blues A new semester, new professors, cold weather and a long wait until spring break. The gym at 48West is the perfect place to get your mind off your winter blues. What better way to look forward to spring break than to get your bikini body ready? 48West built a new yoga studio last year. It’s perfect for stretching, watching Blogilates on YouTube or practicing your dance moves in front of the huge mirror. Once you have your body moving and getting closer to reaching those summer body goals, you’ll be ready to sit down and study to keep powering through the rest of the semester. Phase 5: Cram time As summer gets closer, so do final exams. 48West commons is a great place to study. There’s free printing (you supply the paper), private study rooms, couches and a sunroom. When you’re just so burned out from staring at a textbook, take a quick break behind the commons on our multi-sports courts. This school year is a new start. You’re a year older, new classes, new professors, new roommates and lots of new places to hang out and have fun at 48West. We’re excited to be able to offer you a place where you can be successful in everything you do and to share these adventures with you.
