GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) - Grand Valley State University's new L. William Seidman Center was formally dedicated Wednesday night.
More than 600 donors who helped raise $40 million for construction attended the ribbon cutting in downtown Grand Rapids.
The center is named for founding chair of the GVSU Board of Trustees and former Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) chair Bill Seidman. The 127,643-square-foot building has four floors and houses the business school as well as several other programs.
In attendance at the Wednesday evening event were GVSU President Thomas Haas, General Chair of the Grand Valley University Foundation and Amway co-founder Rich DeVos, and Seidman family members.
The building opened for classes in the spring.
Classroom tours will be available at a community open house Saturday afternoon.
A plan to build an outlet mall in Byron Township did not move forward as expected Monday, MLive is reporting.
A bill before the House would hold back third-grade students who are not proficient in reading.
Power lines blocked busy 28th Street near the Grand Rapids-Kentwood border Monday evening.
