Grand Valley State University Students & Staff Welcomed Free to Maker Faire this year!

Students and staff from both GVSU AND Grand Rapids Community College can use their student ID to get into Maker Faire for free this weekend.

As a partner of Maker Faire GR, GVSU students and staff simply need to show their college ID to be admitted free of charge at any ticket booth this weekend to see Maker Faire Grand Rapids.
“We became an event partner to show support for local inventors and to promote creativity and innovation,” said Wael Mokhtar, director of the School of Engineering at GVSU. “With more than 5,000 visitors during the two-day event, it’s a unique opportunity for Grand Valley to connect with the community.”
Through an ongoing partnership, students from GRCC are welcomed FREE to the GRPM (and Maker Faire) every day! For more information, visit
