Campus Activities Board "Give and Take" Event

On Monday, March 7, the GRCC Campus Activities team participated in a surprise spring break activity. The event was called, Give and Take. They began their day with service and volunteered with Habitat for Humanity. Students and advisors participated in various activities to improve an existing home located on the Southwest side of Grand Rapids.

They hung siding, prepared wood finishes for re-staining, and installed insulation in the basement of the home. In the evening the Campus Activities members were surprised and brought to the JW Marriott Grand Rapids Kitchen Stadium where they broke off in 2 teams for a 2-course meal battle (a la Iron Chef).

Each team was required to create a sushi course and an entree course from a variety of ingredients. Led by a seasoned JW chef, each team created a delicious meal that included a salmon roll and vegetarian sushi roll, NY strip steaks, a variety of sauces and potato side dishes, brussel sprouts and more. Each team was judged on creativity, taste and presentation – and the women of Campus Activities were deemed the overall winners by the panel of JW judges.

Remember last year when 50 Cent released a couple Twitter photos that revealed a sudden, startling weight loss? The public was aghast, thinking that Mr. Cent was perhaps the victim of health problems. […] Perhaps they blew the marketing budget on football uniforms, which for some reason bear a striking resemblance to Grand Rapids Community College’s football team.  (More)
