Alumni Profile - Paul Day
When Paul Day started at Itasca Junior College in the fall of 1966, it was located on the third floor of Greenway High School in Coleraine. Because the high school needed the space during the day, college classes were held in the evening. When he graduated two years later in 1968, it had been relocated to the present campus site in Grand Rapids.
