Grandparents and students interact during Grandparents' Day at CBU
RIVERSIDE (April 10, 2013)—California Baptist University welcomed 140 grandparents of students to campus April 5 for Grandparents’ Day.
Grandparents enjoyed a full day of activities as they interacted with their grandchildren, beginning with breakfast and a campus tour. They accompanied students to chapel services and chose from ceramics or a social media seminar in the morning, followed by a luncheon. In the afternoon, they had the opportunity to visit student housing, attend a women’s choir performance, watch the Lancer baseball team defeat Azusa Pacific University or participate in 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 a day of interaction and pride,” Cleveland said. “We are looking forward to next year’s event.”
