Time to enroll in Grandparents University!
I recieved a note today from Mary Braz, the coordinator for Grandparents University at West Chester University (WCU) in Pennsylvania. Mary reminded me that it has been a year since I wrote about Grandparents Universities. While college kids are returning from their spring break and planning for final exams, a growing number of Grandparents University programs across the country are gearing up to recruit students to campus!
Last year was the first year of for the program at WCU, Mary writes “We had a very successful year last year, with families coming from hundreds of miles away to attend.”
In addition to the colleges I found sponsoring programs last year – I discovered a few more! This is the perfect time of year to contact your Alumni Association or the colleges near you or your grandchildrens home and encourage them to think about starting a program too!
