Despite temperatures in the teens and blowing snow, hundreds gathered outside Zumberge Hall for a silent march commemorating the legacy of Martin Luther King Jr.

“The least we could to was come together, march in unity for that great cause that gave us some of the opportunities that we have today.”

That’s Bobby Springer, the Associate Director of the Office of Multicultural Affairs at GVSU.
