Bethel College celebrated the 26th annual Grandparents Day during the spring semester at Bethel College with a record attendance of 136 grandparent guests, one more than last year. Grandparents came from as far away as New York and California and from as close as across the street from Bethel’s campus in North Newton. The grandparents could go to classes and convocation and eat a meal in the cafeteria with their grandchildren — and their presence motivated more than one student to get around to the dorm room or mod cleanup they’d been putting off, according to a Bethel College news release.
