Sibs and Kids weekend is coming up this Feb. 21-23, and it’s a great opportunity for you to show off your Laker Pride and give your friends or family a chance to see your home away from home! Invite the people you care about to GV for a weekend full of fun events and some quality bonding. Registration is open now with a $5 fee per person. Here are all the details you need about this year’s fun-packed Sibs and Kids Weekend.

Kick off your weekend with the Kirkhof Carnival from 5 to 7 p.m. You’ll receive a gift bag and have a chance to play games and enjoy some free food. If you’re the artsy type, skskskrt on over to a VSCO style craft event from 5 to 9 p.m. where you’ll get to make laptop stickers, friendship bracelets, and scrunchies. Or, if you’re looking for a laugh, wander your way down to Area 51 at 8 p.m. for a fun night of improv comedy with GV’s own Subject to Change. End the night by watching Angry Birds 2 on the Kirkhof big screen or putting your knowledge to the test with Disney Trivia before heading to bed.

Now that you’re refreshed and ready to take on the day, grab some breakfast and take some time to show your guests around campus. Then head to Kirkhof to give back to the community by decorating some bags for Kids Food Basket through the Community Service Learning Center (CSLC) Service Event. Then let out your inner artist by painting a beautiful scene at Canvas & Sip (and if you need inspiration, our beloved clock tower is right outside). At 5 p.m, prepare for more laughter as Trent James, a comedic magician, puts on a mystical show that you won’t forget. Finish out the night with musical bingo or a DIY spa experience where you can create your own face masks.


Sadly, all good things must come to an end. Before you say your goodbyes, grab some Pancakes with the Residence Housing Association or head to Kirkhof to play with puppies. After an amazing weekend, it’s time to send your guests on their way. Make sure to squeeze them tight and wish them a safe drive!
