Grandparents University 2018
Start Date: 6/21/2018 All Day
End Date: 6/22/2018

Event Description:

Grandparents University is an opportunity for grandparents to explore college life with grandchildren during a two-day intergenerational learning experience taking place June 21-22. Participants will learn from WSU faculty and staff in an interactive, collaborative, and fun-filled environment. On-campus housing in WSU’s Haake Hall is also available.

Grandparents and grandchildren select a major of study and take classes during the two days in their selected field. This year’s seven majors are: Portrait Drawing 101: Draw your Grandparent/Grandchild, Physics in Everyday Life, Get a Clue!: An Introduction to Writing Mysteries, Terrific Trees of the WSU Campus: Exploring our Living Classroom, Clowning Around 101, Mysterious Microbiology: The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly, and Lego Mindstorms: Introduction to Robotics.

Participants do not have to be a grandparent to participate. Grandparents University offers any special “Grandfriend” the opportunity to explore college life and create lifelong memories.

Grandparents University will also accept a trio of participants. Two grandparents can bring one grandchild or one grandparent can bring two grandchildren. All must be enrolled in the same major.
For more information on majors and pricing, visit online or call the Retiree Center at 507-457-5565.
