Lil’ Sibs Weekend is a weekend of fun activities for members
of the Kent State community and their families. 

Kent Interhall Council (KIC) hosts the 2013 Lil’ Sibs Weekend from April 19-21. Lil’ Sibs is a weekend-long event that has been a Kent State tradition for more than 35 years. The event is open to all Kent State faculty, staff and students and their families.  

“Last year, we had more than 2,000 people in attendance and we are again looking forward to having record numbers in attendance at Lil’ Sibs weekend,” says Leah Carothers, resident hall director at Kent State.

The theme of this year’s event is “Sibs-a-lodeon,” and throughout the weekend there will be lots of Nickelodeon-inspired events. Traditional activities will include the dive-in movie on Friday night featuring “The Spongebob Squarepants Movie,” and inflatables on Saturday afternoon, both occurring at the Student Recreation and Wellness Center.  A magician, the movie “Rise of the Guardians” showing three times throughout the weekend, ice skating at the rink and bowling at the bowling alley in Eastway, will also take place.  In addition, all residence halls will have Nickelodeon-inspired events throughout the weekend. 
 
Some new events include “An Evening with Pixar,” where people can come to hear a Pixar animator speak and give demonstrations about animation.  The Archeological Club will sponsor an Archeological Dig on Saturday morning. The Kent State softball team also will sponsor a run-the-bases event at the softball court on Saturday afternoon. Saturday night will feature crafting with the Kent Interhall Council, “Figure It Out” sponsored by TV2 and Sibs Bingo where Kent State siblings will be able to win great prizes.
 
Sunday will be Family Day that will start with a family day brunch in Eastway Cafeteria and an opportunity to explore downtown Kent either by walking, driving or riding on Lolly the Trolley.  Kent Interhall Council has been working with the downtown merchants to have fun activities throughout the afternoon. 
 
“We look forward to this weekend being a fun-filled weekend to enjoy the Kent Campus and downtown Kent!” Carothers says.
