The Office of Residence Life will be sponsoring Sibling Night on Friday, October 11th 2013.

The night is geared more for younger siblings, although all ages are welcome to attend. The Office of Residence Life has put together an agenda that’s filled with a variety of fun events and opportunities for the evening. In addition, dinner is included in registration and will be provided for the SCSU host and their guest(s).
Friday September 20, 2013 through Monday, October 7, 2013.

Helpful Information about Sibling Night
- The visiting siblings will be given special Siblings Night ID badges, which will allow them access to the residence halls of their host, and the ability to participate in activities and dinner for Friday night.
- Siblings must be between ages of 5 and 17. For safety reasons, students may only host up to two siblings/family members.
- Students are responsible for their guests and must accompany them at all times.
- Siblings of either gender may stay in a SCSU student’s residence hall room with his/her roommate’s permission.
- Siblings should prepare for overnight stay: bring a sleeping bag and a pillow.
Do we have to check-in somewhere when we arrive?
Check in begins on Friday, October 11th at 5:00 pm in the Farnham Programming Space. SCSU hosts and their siblings/guests must go there to check in, receive their ID badges, and pick up the Sibling Night Agenda. Games, crafts, and other fun activities will be going on in the Farnham Programming Space from 5:00pm-11:00pm. Siblings and guests will then go with their hosts for the night.
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?
On Friday evening, catered food options will be available. On Saturday, a continental breakfast will be served from 8:00 am - 10:00 am in the Farnham Programming space.
