Siblings Day 2012!

Do you know about Siblings Day? This month, on Saturday, February 18th, Hofstra's Office of Parent and Family Programs and the Resident Student Association are sponsoring the annual Hofstra Siblings Day.

Hofstra Siblings Day is a special collegiate experience open to all Hofstra students, specifically residents. Hofstra students may host up to two brothers, sisters, or other relatives (aged 13-17), are responsible for and must accompany them at all times. Guests arrive on campus Saturday morning (February 18, 2012) and may stay overnight in their Hofstra host student's residence hall room, provided the host receives his/her roommate's consent. Transportation to campus is not provided, but fun is!

Hofstra students have planned a variety of fun activities, including a PRIDE Showcase featuring performances from talented student groups, a Hofstra basketball game, a visit with the stars in Hofstra's Observatory, a traditional late-night breakfast, and much more. The registration fee of $30 per guest covers most meals and activities . Participants will leave campus with a glimpse of Hofstra's college life and their own "Siblings Day" T-shirt.
