This is the L. William Seidman statue just outside the Pew Library on the main campus. It was moderately brightened. For me personally, it hit me pretty quickly, once I read his plaque, that we share the same birthday! (April 29) He was allegedly one of the founding fathers of the university, and worked under several Presidential Administrations. Several buildings attached to GVSU were named in his honor, including one of the top business schools in the nation. I don’t do business but that’s pretty neat to me. Plus we’re birthday buddies. Did I mention we share a birthday?
