Meadows Crossing Apartments wasn’t kidding with their motto “the place to be” especially with the temperature reaching nearly 100 degrees during the past few weeks.
Alex Heit, a resident at Meadows Crossing’s GVSU Apartments, was asked what her favorite thing about living at Meadows was. She replied, “Definitely the pool and spa. I love laying out and relaxing with friends while listening to the radio. The pool is a great place to meet people too and gives Meadows a nice community. The pool was especially great this week because of how hot it was.”
Joshua McCoy, another tenant at Meadows said, “I love using the hot tub after a long day at work. It is nice to chill with my friends and it’s a great way to end the day.” It’s no secret that Meadows offers great amenities to its residents. Meadows Crossing’s Apartments near GVSU also allow residents to have two guests at the pool Monday through Friday, and one guest on Saturday and Sunday. On top of that, the pool and spa are open from 10:00 am-10:00 pm so if you have to work, you still have some time to jump in and make a splash.
One of the biggest events at Meadows is the annual “Splash Bash” at the pool. This consists of many fun activities such as pool games, free food, and a DJ that comes out and plays the best hits. This party lasts all week and takes place in mid August. It is a great way to meet residents and make friends.
How long does the pool stay open for? The pool usually opens the last week of May and stays open until the middle of October. This allows residents who don’t stay during the summer to have the opportunity to enjoy the pool. However, the hot tub is open year round. That’s right, ALL YEAR!! The hot tub is open from 5:00 pm-10:00 pm in the winter time which allows residents to get some heat in the winter time. Residents love this amenity and we continue to get positive feedback about our pool and spa.

For those living in Meadows Crossing’s Apartments near GVSU, campus life isn’t about just staying inside their homes relaxing with their roommates; it is about the community that Meadows offers to its residents. Some reasons how Meadows Crossing nurtures its community is by having the pool and spa, 24/7 fitness center, basketball courts and the volleyball courts. However, there is much more to living at Meadows then just the amenities it offers.
Frequently, Meadows Crossing plans events for its residents so they have opportunities to learn and grow while living there. One event that Meadows Crossing recently planned was a tour of the clock tower on Grand Valley’s Allendale campus. Residents had the opportunity to meet some of the employees in the leasing office and then car pool to campus.
Kelly Butler, a resident at Meadows’ GVSU off campus apartments said, “It was a great opportunity to learn some history about not only the clock tower, but about Grand Valley’s history. I had no idea that there was anyone who played the bells inside the clock tower.” Another event that Meadows Crossing hosts monthly is movie night. This month, Meadows is showing both Batman movies in celebration of the third Batman release coming out July 20th. During movie night, Meadows supplies pop and popcorn.
Meadows strives to have the best community out of all the GVSU apartments in Allendale. We sponsor holiday events for the residents so they can have some festive fun. Every Halloween we have a door decorating contest. The residents decorate their doors and whoever has the most creative door wins a prize. Also, we pair up with Delta Tau Delta, a fraternity on Grand Valley’s campus, and hosts a Halloween zombie walk. Everyone puts on their best zombie attire and walks around the complex as a zombie. Last year was the first year hosting a zombie walk and nearly 200 residents and people from the community came out to celebrate the holiday.
So if you are searching for the the place to be, the best of Grand Valley housing options, give us a call. We would love to have you join our fun, exciting and growing community.
