Grandparents Day is an annual event that is planned to tie the generations together by inviting grandparents to spend the day with their grandchildren/students. The day will give you an opportunity to visit classes, attend chapel, tour facilities, hear from University administrators, fellowship with other grandparents, and have a wonderful time engaging with your grandchild.
