This past weekend, Student Activities Council hosted the annual ‘Kids and Sibs weekend’ here at Mercyhurst.
This event revolves around students bringing their younger siblings for a weekend full of fun activities.
Kids and Sibs began with an exotic petting zoo on Friday in the Great Room of the Union, followed by bingo and Little Caesar’s pizza. On Saturday, there was an inflatable rock wall, a jump house and laser tag in the REC. There was plenty of free food, such as Rita’s, Chic-fil-a, Tim Hortons, smoothies and popcorn.
Overall, about 40 sibs attended the weekend-long event.
Although the event was directed toward younger siblings, “a lot of students without sibs attended the events, especially the petting zoo. We tried to make this year really unique” says Students Activities Council (SAC) chair Victoria Lewis.
Compared to years past, SAC event programmer Alex Strong said, “this year there were more older siblings than years past, so we tried to gear all the activities to an older crowd, although there was a pretty sweet play-doh station offered.”
Overall, Kids and Sibs weekend was a huge success for students with and without siblings.
