Event Description

There's a special connection between a grandparent and a grandchild, no matter their ages. Bethel University's 8th 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:

"Because of class schedules my two grandsons ate lunch separately with me so I had a chance to talk with each of them one-on-one."

"Seeing how my granddaughter has grown and matured so much in her years at Bethel was a joy. To see her greeting other students by name and the obvious strong friendships just melted my heart! I am so thankful for her positive experience and Christian journey at Bethel!"

"I was able to be an adopted grandparent to one of my granddaughter's friends!"
