Grandparents University is a 3-day, 2-night event for grandparents and grandchildren to experience life on a college campus together. Children aged 8-12 take part in everything from tours of campus buildings, to mini-golf, to 90-minute sessions on making Lego robots, churning ice-cream in the MSU Dairy and much more.
