Grandparents University is a program run by the MSU Alumni Association, in partnership with many units and colleges at Michigan State University. Each summer grandparents and their grandchildren, age 8-12, come to campus for three days of fun, family time and Spartan spirit. They stay in residence halls, eat in dining halls, explore campus, participate in four "classes" designed with grandchildren in mind, and have fun during planned evening activities. This year we have participants from around the United States, as well as Italy and United Arab Emirates.
Read below to see some of the social media comments regarding the event, and to view our photos. You can learn more about the program at grandparents.msu.edu.
