Grand Valley State University is expanding its recreation center

Facilities at the Allendale, Mich., campus have not kept up with growing student demand.

Grand Valley State University in Allendale, Mich., is moving forward with a $7.8 million expansion of its recreation center.

Kate Harmon, campus recreation director, says building the 17,000-square-foot addition will help the university address the demand for recreation and fitness programs that has not kept up with a robust increase in student enrollment.
