  • Are there any deadlines or date-oriented information on your webpages that have passed or need to be updated?
  • Is your bio/contact information still correct? If you want to make changes to your bio, simply log in at, navigate to your bio and submit the form for changes.
  • Are there any outdated events that need to be hidden or new events that need to be promoted?
  • Are your department’s office hours and contact information updated for holiday break and beyond?

Need help making these updates? If you’re a web editor, visit our Drupal User Manual or email and we’ll be happy to assist you.

GRCC baseball’s Drew Murphy named MCCAA Western Conference Pitcher of the Week

Drew Murphy was named MCCAA Western Conference Pitcher of the Week after his performance against Kalamazoo Valley Community College on April 29.

The 6-foot, 4-inch righty from Sturgis tossed a two-hitter in six innings of work, helping his team to a 4-1 victory in game two of the series against conference foe KVCC.

Murphy allowed no earned runs while striking out a season best 10 and walking just two batters.

For the season, Murphy has started six games, pitching 29.1 innings, while striking out 33 batters.  His 2.86 ERA and three wins rank third on the team.

The Raiders are currently on a 10-game winning streak with one more series against Ancilla College before a potential postseason berth.

Currently they are all alone in third place in the MCCAA-West with a game lead over fourth place.  The top three teams qualify for postseason.
