DRAKE UNIVERSITY – Residence Hall Association Presents:

 

SIBLINGS WEEKEND: Viva Las Vegas!

 

March 4-6, 2016

 

Siblings weekend is an annual opportunity to welcome your brothers and sisters to experience life as a Drake Bulldog. As a student you can catch up with your sibling(s), introduce them to your new friends and show off the University. You and your sibling(s) will have a chance to experience everything from athletics to arts, clubs to student activities, all in one weekend.

 

This year we’re taking you and your sibling(s) to rocking and rolling Las Vegas! The Student Activities Board and Residence Hall Association have combined their forces to bring you Vegas-like games and activities that lead up an awesome prize drawing. We have a concert by Dustin Hatzenbuhler, a former contestant on The Voice, and a magic show with renowned magician Nash Fung, who has appeared on NBC, The CW and Penn and Teller’s Fool Us. This will be an unforgettable weekend!

 

All siblings MUST register. Follow the link to complete your registration today:
