It’s a Family Affair! Are You Ready For Lil’ Sibs Weekend at EMU?

by blogemu


Lil’ Sibs Weekend is quickly approaching, and there are a few things you should know about this annual event held by Housing and Residence Life and the Residence Housing Association.


We have a lot planned! Love animals? Nelson’s Wildlife Safari will have two shows, as well as fun activities in the different residence halls and Late Night at the Rec! Schedules will be posted around the halls for your reference.


You can bring up to two sibs with you – and they don’t have to be your sibling, either. They can be your cousin, friends, neighbors, etc. As long as they are between 5 and 17, they can come hang out for the weekend. Any person without a wristband under the age of 18 will not be able to stay in the residence halls for the night.


Check-in runs from 4 pm to 11 pm on Friday, March 23rd and 9 am to 11:30 am on Saturday, March 24th in the Walton/Putnam lounge. The resident must be at check in with their lil’ sib, and check-in will be faster for those who pre-register online via PayPal…


…but you can register the day-of with cash (checks will not be accepted, sorry!) No one will be able to check-in outside of the registration times, so make sure you plan accordingly.


Wristbands are needed to get into each event. EMU students without wristbands will not be allowed into events during the weekend, including Late Night at the Rec. Parents and guests without wristbands will only be allowed at the ice cream social on Friday night, but only those with a wristband will get a treat!


If you have any more questions, please call (734) 487-1300, email housing@emich.edu, or go to http://www.emich.edu/residencelife/lilsibs. We can’t wait to see you and your sibs!
