Event Description

There’s a special connection between a grandparent and a grandchild, no matter their ages. Bethel University’s 6th annual Grandparents Day is an opportunity for Bethel students and their grandparents to celebrate that special connection and enjoy a day together on Bethel’s campus.

Grandparents, you will have the opportunity to attend Chapel, tour campus, hear from university leaders, eat lunch in Bethel’s beautiful Monson Dining Center, and have a wonderful time engaging with your grandchild as you experience their home away from home.

Here’s what several grandparents shared as their highlight from Grandparents Day events in the past:

“My granddaughter and I have always enjoyed a very tight relationship, but it’s so good to see how she is maturing both academically and spiritually. It was heartwarming to know how much she appreciated me coming! And, so good to meet some of her friends!”

“We enjoyed spending time with her and exploring the beautiful campus. It was fun to see her room and also going to chapel with her. We now understand why she loves Bethel so much.”

“It was so much fun having lunch with our grandchildren. They were so very attentive in carrying our trays, picking up our drinks, etc.—a real reversal of roles.”


Times and locations of events will be coming soon!
