Grandparents University

Uniting Spartan Generations 

The aftermath of the novel coronavirus pandemic has caused limitations in university resources that are essential to providing a successful and seamless Grandparents University (GPU) experience. Therefore, the MSU Alumni Office will be canceling the 2022 GPU program until we are able to provide the quality, multigenerational experience that people have come to expect from the program. We greatly appreciate your commitment to Grandparents University and we will keep you updated as we plan for 2023.

Since 2005, Michigan State University has welcomed young Spartans and their grandparents to campus for a unique inter-generational learning experience at Grandparents University. 

This three-day summer camp is a truly unique, fun-filled experience that actively engages kids in Michigan State academics while creating lasting family memories. Each year, 1,300 guests from throughout the United States and around the world choose from nearly 200 classes offered by more than 25 colleges and units at MSU. Students participate in four classes and unique evening programming, with ample time allocated for exploring all that the MSU campus has to offer.
