    The following is from a GVSU press release.

    Grand Rapids Monopoly to raise scholarshp money

    A student organization at Grand Valley State University's Seidman College of Business has created a Grand Rapids themed version of the board game Monopoly. Soon players will be able to buy companies like Alticor, Meijer and Steelcase while moving pieces shaped like local landmarks like Calder's La Grande Vitesse.

    The project was spearheaded by the Collegiate Entrepreneurs' Organization (CEO) at Grand Valley. Business sponsorships and sales of the game will raise funds to establish a CEO student scholarship at Grand Valley.
    The game board is patterned after the familiar Monopoly board, but it features prominent local businesses in the place of the original names. Boardwalk is Alticor, Park Place is Meijer, and Steelcase is Pacific Avenue (the three highest valued properties in the game). Other featured businesses are Behler-Young, Louis Padnos Iron and Metal Company, The Gilmore Collection, 1913 Room, Rockford Construction, Old Orchard, WZZM, Grand Valley State, Calvin College, and Aquinas College. The hotels will be shaped as the Amway Grand, and houses will represent the conservatory at the Frederick Meijer Gardens. Tokens will also be shaped as local attractions, such as the La Grande Vitesse, Leonardo Da Vinci Horse, John Ball statue, and other area landmarks.
