Bridge the generation gap and enjoy three unforgettable days with your grandchild(ren) at Grandparent University. Children and their grandparents learn side-by-side while getting a taste of the OSU experience at Grandparent University. Enjoy getting to know your fellow participants with outdoor games as well as swimming Wednesday evening. Thursday begins with an exciting orientation class. Following lunch, participants divide into their selected “majors” for fun, interactive learning. All enjoy a spirited tailgate dinner Thursday evening. Afterward, children and grandparents are free to participate in evening activities or return to the residence halls. Classes conclude Friday morning and are followed by lunch and a graduation ceremony. While most activities at Grandparent University are not physically demanding, there may be quite a bit of walking between venues for some majors. ELIGIBILITY  Grandparent University is one of the many benefits of being a member of the OSU Alumni Association. To participate, a child must be between the ages of 7 and 13 and registered in the Legacy program under a parent or grandparent who is an active member of the OSU Alumni Association. APPLICATION PROCESS  NOTICE THE ENROLLMENT PROCESS HAS CHANGED FOR 2014. Grandparent University is a wonderfully popular program with OSU alumni and Legacies. Because of GPU’s success, a lottery system will determine admittance and major placement. We encourage applicants to be open minded when listing their majors in preference order; please list ALL majors you are willing to attend, and place a “0” next to each major you are not willing to attend. Grandparent University is expected to sell out quickly. APPLICATION DEADLINE  All applications for enrollment must be submitted online at orangeconnection.org/GPU by April 1 at 5 p.m. The online application requires the following information: contact name, contact daytime phone number, contact email, number of groups in your family that will be attending (one group per major), names and ages in each group and selected majors in order of preference. All online applications will get an application number and be placed into the lottery. Each family will be placed in majors according to the order of drawing; we can’t guarantee that multiple families will be assigned to the same major.


We will announce the application numbers that have been assigned to each major on April 7 starting at 9 a.m. at orangeconnection.org/gpu. After the April 7 announcements, you will

receive an email with your assigned major and a link to complete your enrollment. You can then complete your enrollment via the online form, fax, mail, telephone or in person. Applicants drawn after preferred majors are full will be notified via email that their application could not be fulfilled. IT IS VERY IMPORTANT YOU LIST EVERY MAJOR YOU ARE WILLING TO ATTEND ON YOUR APPLICATION.

COST  This year’s Grandparent University is three days long, with social activities on the first day. The cost is $240 per grandparent and $170 per grandchild, which includes Wednesday and Thursday nights’ lodging, instruction, all activities, T-shirt, class materials, transportation and six meals during your visit. The cost is $210 per grandparent and $140 per grandchild for late check-ins arriving Thursday, which include one night’s lodging, instruction, all activities, T-shirt, class materials, transportation and four meals during your visit. There is an additional fee of $25 per attendee for participating in the Aviation major. CHOOSING A MAJOR  Expert faculty, staff and students from across the OSU campus provide instruction for Grandparent University. Majors are limited and assigned on a first-drawn, firstserved basis through the enrollment lottery. Children must enroll with and be accompanied by their grandparents. All majors are designed to be appealing to both Cowboys and Cowgirls. However, some majors have been designed with age-specific requirements, and Aviation has an additional fee associated to cover the extra expense. PHYSICAL ACTIVITY  Physical activity levels vary among majors so please choose a major that best suits your physical needs. LOW — Mostly seated activities in a classroom or laboratory. MEDIUM — Some movement and walking required, possibly in outdoor heat. HIGH — Significant movement required; may include physical activity outdoors in the heat. LODGING  Rooms have been arranged in suites in OSU residence halls. Children must share a suite with their grandparent(s). If you are bringing more than one family group or if you would like to request specific suitemates, please make note on your registration (after you have been selected in the lottery and placed in your major). Meals  Most meals are included with your enrollment costs. Wednesday’s Fruit Frenzy afternoon snack will be served in the heart of campus, and dinner is on your own. We encourage you to explore Stillwater. Breakfast and lunch will be served at an OSU dining facility on Thursday and Friday. Thursday’s dinner will be a pizza tailgate party at the ConocoPhillips OSU Alumni Center. Parking  Parking will be available outside the residence halls. Transportation to and from your major will be provided during Grandparent University, but if you have special parking needs, let us know. Parking for the tailgate party and graduation will be available in the Student Union Parking Garage for a small fee. Those participating in majors located near the residence halls will walk to classes.

Questions?  If you have any concerns or special needs, please feel free to contact Melisa Parkerson at melisa.parkerson@okstate.edu or call 405-744-5368 .
