Siblings Day

Future Ichabods can get a closer look at life on campus while hanging out with their brothers and/or sisters during Siblings Day.

This year's event was during Family Weekend on Friday, Sept. 16.

The most popular feature of Siblings Day is that siblings can stay in the residence halls with their brother or sister, as long as they're a current Washburn student.

Siblings must be at least 6 years old, and each Washburn student may bring up to three siblings. Students must obtain approval from suitemates for siblings to stay the night.
