Lil’ Sibs Weekend Set for April 10-12

A Kent State Tradition Returns April 10-12

The Kent Interhall Council will host Lil’ Sibs Weekend from Friday, April 10, to Sunday, April 12. This weekend is a longstanding tradition for Kent State University faculty, staff and students and their families. 

The Kent Interhall Council chose the theme for this year, called “Kentcation: A Sibs Getaway.” 

The weekend offers a full schedule of programs and events. After check-in, Kent Interhall Council will feature several programs to engage attendees, as well as the dive-in movie at the Student Wellness and Recreation Center pool.

Saturday morning features a spa day at Eastway Center, featuring caricature artists, face paint and henna artists. In addition to the spa day activities, there will be inflatables at Eastway Center and a magician. Lolly the Trolley also will shuttle participants to visit downtown Kent on Saturday between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. The weekend will conclude on Sunday with an optional family brunch at Eastway Center. 

Lil’ Sibs is always well attended, says Emily Nighswander, vice president of programming and development for the Kent Interhall Council and junior nursing major. She hopes this year will be as hugely successful as last year.

“Lil’ Sibs Weekend has been around since the 1990s and has grown tremendously over the years,” Nighswander said. “It is important to keep the tradition going because it is a great way for families to experience Kent State, and it introduces students to our campus and encourages them to think about attending Kent State.”

There will be Lil’ Sibs T-shirts and sunglasses available for purchase. A limited number of shirts will be available at registration on Friday, April 10, from 4-8 p.m. at the cost of $10 and sunglasses for $5.
