If you’re interested in spending some quality time with your grandkids this summer, look no further than your alma mater. Grandparents University returns to WCU for three days of fun and learning, June 24-26.

You and your grandkids can explore campus through virtual reality and 3D mapping, produce and star in a newscast, design your own superhero costume, test your mettle in a team challenge that includes an optional rope course, and much more.

Grandparents University will give your grandkids – ages 7 to 13 -- a sneak peek at what it’s like to be Golden Ram. You’ll enjoy comfortable accommodations in our newest residence halls; share meals together in Lawrence Dining Hall, and attend classes all across campus. You also have the option to be a commuter if you don’t wish to stay in the residence halls.

Sue and I can’t wait for our grandchildren to be old enough to attend Grandparents University with us. For more information, contact the Office of Alumni Relations at 610.436.2813 or alumni@wcupa.edu.

Plus, limited spots remain in WCU’s summer camps, which run the gamut from an elementary school music camp to a high school tennis clinic.
