Promotional Film, 1968. This is a promotional video in color with audio. It begins with a group of faculty talking to each other about their classes and clips of campus. The narrator, David Compton, describes the collegiate system, the curriculum at Grand Valley State College and the degrees offered. There are clips from different classroom experiences: a lecture, a discussion session with President Zumberge, a science lab, and a tutorial. The video describes Zumberge Library’s amenities, including the audio-visual collection. There is a brief discussion of financial aid, followed by an explanation of the strengths of a liberal education, and potential job prospects for graduates. Finally, the narrator describes the arts on campus, athletics, and student housing. There are credits at the end of the video. A later edition of this promotional video, Getting to Know Grand Valley, uses much of the same footage and narration.
