Lil' Sibs Weekend, a special event-filled weekend for UC students to show off the campus to siblings, relatives, and close friends who are considering a college degree, will be held May 4-5 at the University of Cincinnati. The theme for the Student Alumni Council event is "Under the C," as special guests explore all that UC has to offer and get a taste of marine life as well.
Registration is $25 and begins at 6 p.m. Friday, May 4 at Johnny Bench Field, where guests will take in a UC baseball game. Participants are encouraged to RSVP by April 27 via email to the Student Alumni Association at firstname.lastname@example.org. The registration fee includes a Lil' Sibs T-shirt and a photo with the Bearcat mascot. The fee covers costs for meals and attractions.
In addition to the game, Lil' Sibs Weekend will feature a dramatic display of the underwater ocean photography of Jean-Michel Cousteau, the son of oceanographer Jacques Cousteau. The photographs were donated to the Student Alumni Council for Lil' Sibs Weekend. Here's a look at what else is in store 'Under the C:'
