Hear what others have to say about Sibling Saturday

"I liked getting to show my sister around the campus. The classroom experience was fun because they did cool experiments and my little sister got called to the front with the engineering professor. My best memory was probably just getting to spend time in my new house and city with my little sister. It was overall a great experience that I will cherish memories from for a lifetime."

"Sibling Saturday really helped me show my sister the joy of going to college and the possibilities that are out there. For the first time my little sister is excited about going to college!"
Sibling Saturday Participant

"Sibling Saturday was a wonderful way for our 10-year-old to reconnect with her big sister! They both had a blast and we plan to participate every year."
