What is Grandparents' Day?
California Baptist University welcomed 140 grandparents of current students to campus April 5, 2013, for the first annual Grandparents' Day.
Grandparents enjoyed a full day of activities as they interacted with their grandchildren, beginning with breakfast and a campus tour. They were able to accompany students to chapel services and choose from ceramics or a social media seminar in the morning, followed by a special luncheon on the Front Lawn with Dr. Ellis. The afternoon activities included the opportunity to visit the student housing areas, a women's choir performance, watching the Lancer baseball team defeat Azusa Pacific University and an estate planning seminar.
The inaugural Grandparents' Day was an opportunity for students to show appreciation for their grandparents' support and love, according to Dr. Arthur Cleveland, Vice President of Institutional Advancement. "Grandparents took away a better idea of where their grandchildren were receiving their education and enjoyed a day of interaction and pride," Cleveland said.
This year, the event is expected to be even bigger than last year! We will offer a repeat performance of last year's popular options, such as ceramics, special seminars, and tours, but we will also add some new options to the day for those who are coming back and looking to try something new!
