This past week Meadows Crossing hosted Welcome Week for our residents. The GVSU fall semester begins this week, and our residents will soon be in the full swing of studying, going to classes, working, and getting otherwise involved in college life. So it was good to take time to have fun and socialize with the many great people who live in our apartment complex.
Welcome Week Events
We had a week packed with events. On Monday afternoon we had an ice cream social in our newly renovated Rec Room. Tuesday afternoon we held a volleyball tournament. On Wednesday afternoon, we held our annual 3-on-3 basketball tournament. Winners from both the volleyball and basketball tournaments received trophies.
Splash Bash 2019
Then on Thursday and Friday we hosted Meadows Crossing’s 9th annual Splash Bash from 1-5 PM. DJ B-wiz hosted this party, and our residents took advantage of the great weather and our refreshing pool to get out, mingle, and let their hair down a bit while the weather is warm and sunny and they still have free time.
We have been hosting this party every August for the decade since we installed the pool, but Splash Bash 2019 was the biggest and the best. People showed up in large numbers both days and had a great time. Everyone was very friendly. Cottage Inn Pizza generously supplied the pizza for the party, and they reported that their phone rang off the hook into the night because people were still gathering, socializing, and enjoying themselves well after the official party ended. Thank you, Cottage Inn Pizza!

While we are happy to host these events because our residents enjoy them, we are also proud that we help create experiences for our residents. The majority of these students come to us right from the GVSU dorms, and they may not know many people here when they move in. Events like these help people to get to know their new neighbors. They meet people who they might not meet otherwise. College is a time of huge change in people’s lives, and many people make friends in college who will be a part of their lives forever – great friends and even future spouses!
The amenities we offer here, including the pool, the basketball and volleyball courts, the Rec Room, and the Fitness Center give our residents places where they can entertain themselves and socialize outside of their own four walls throughout the academic year. We make a point to ask them how we can improve our complex, and these amenities exist as a result of their comments and needs.
We hope you enjoyed Splash Bash 2019! For pictures of Splash Bash and our other events, check out Meadows Crossing’s Instagram. Don’t forget to tag us with your own pictures! We love to see them.
