Where do siblings sleep?

Siblings will stay in the same room as their college student sibling.

What should siblings bring?

Bring a sleeping bag and pillow, warm clothes, and a toothbrush. You might also consider extra money for off-campus activities or pizza at midnight, and any items related to the options for the weekend.

Is this only for younger siblings?

All siblings are welcome; some of the events during Siblings Night are geared more for younger siblings, but most are appropriate for all ages. And older siblings often find it easier to "hang out" with their SCSU sibling without needing as many planned activities.

Will food be provided?
