LITTLE SIBS WEEKEND 2015
Date: April 10-12, 2015
Dear Little Sibs,
We are excited to invite you to Little Sibs Weekend 2015 in April and look forward to welcoming you on campus. We always plan a weekend full of fun activities and opportunities to experience college life. There's plenty of free time for siblings to spend together. Some of the events have a cost for attending. In addition, our Admissions Office is hosting an Open House for high school students who may have interest in learning more about attending Messiah. See the schedule for complete details.
Please help us plan space, food, and beverages for Little Sibs Weekend by completing the online registration form. Registering online is strongly encouraged, as we like to know who is coming, and it does help us in our planning. Those who do not register online can register at the Larsen Student Union information counter upon arrival at Little Sibs Weekend.
Please read this section carefully.
Our Campus Visitor Policy requires all siblings staying over night to bring a signed parent/guardian liability release and medical permission form to campus and turn in to either our Dispatch Office or the Office of Student Involvement & Leadership Programs. This form can be printed off here.
Only children who are related to a student may stay overnight in College-owned housing, and only if he/she meet all of the following conditions:
- is 10 years of age or older
- is invited to do so by the host student
- is the same gender as the host student
- is actually under the supervision of the student family member
- has provided a signed parent/guardian liability release and medical permission form to the Dispatch Office or the Office of Student Involvement & Leadership Programs.
Children who are related to a student, but are not the same gender as that student can only stay on campus overnight if they are 15 years of age or older, stay in the room of a friend of their sibling who is of the same gender as they are, and provide the signed parent/guardian liability release and medical permission form to the Dispatch Office or the Office of Student Involvement & Leadership Programs.

Sleeping bag and pillow, toiletries, clothes for sports and church, bathing suit and towel, money for meals and activities.
