Siblings Weekend

RHA is once again proud to present Siblings Weekend designed for the brothers and/or sisters of Loyola students to come and visit on campus with their siblings. Please be aware that siblings must be between 5 and 17 years of age. Also, there are no official meals scheduled for Friday or Saturday so students and siblings must make their own arrangements during these times. Our campus dining locations will have regular weekend dining hours. Concerning on-campus accommodations, siblings will stay overnight in the room of the host student. Students who are hosting siblings of the opposite gender will need to find a student friend (of the same gender as their siblings) who is willing to host their siblings. If this is not feasible, hotel accommodations with family members are recommended. For nearby hotels that offers discounts to Loyola families, students and alumni, click here.

If you should have any questions regarding the weekend, please contact rha@loyola.edu

Date: April 10-12, 2015
