Title

Getting to Know Grand Valley, circa 1975

Description

Getting to Know Grand Valley. 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 curriculum at Grand Valley State College and the degrees offered. There are clips from different classroom experiences: a lecture, a discussion session, a science lab, and meeting one on one with professors for the new School of General Studies. The video describes the new science hall and Zumberge Library 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. An earlier edition of this promotional video from 1968 uses much of the same footage and narration.
