Sept. 12. The Grandfriend program pairs Davidson College students with mature adults in the Lake Norman community to create meaningful, inter-generational friendships.

This long running and successful program runs during the traditional school year, breaking for summer and resuming in the fall.

What does a grandfriend do?

Grandfriends are encouraged to connect on their own through conversations and activities they both enjoy. After an initial meeting, grandfriends can call each other up for coffee, a Wildcat game, art show or performance, or even to share a home cooked meal together.

Group events are completely optional, but offer an opportunity for fun and fellowship with other grandfriends.

The Grandfriend program is a fun and easy way to be a mentor, friend or adopted family to a student.
