Attention all SIU students, faculty & staff, Sibs and Kids Day is your chance to invite your child, sibling, niece, nephew, cousin, or friend to campus to experience the excitement of life as a Saluki!

Sibs and Kids Day is different this year.
There is no cost or registration required.  You just need to check in at the Student Center the day of the event to sign waivers and receive wristbands, then you are free to participate in the activities.  Touch of Nature is also hosting their annual Maple Syrup Festival, if you are looking for something to do in the morning.

Sibs and Kids are able to stay overnight on campus with their SIU student on Friday, February 22 and Saturday, February 23 at no additional cost, as long as the SIU student resides on campus.  Children must be at least 8 years old.  On campus students will need to follow the guest policy for their building, if they have any questions they can speak with their RA.

Activities are geared towards Sibs and Kids ages 5-12, but all are welcome to attend. No need to register for this day, just come out and enjoy campus with your sibs and kids!
