Sibling Sleepover

Younger siblings/relatives are invited to stay in the residence halls for 1 or 2 nights during Family Weekend! Please fill out this form by Wed. October 5th so we can account for your presence in our on-campus homes.

In addition, you will need to check in at our table in the Albrecht Lounge to sign a waiver for the event.

**Note: Only same gendered siblings are allowed to stay in the same residence hall room. If a sibling is of the opposite gender, the CUW student must find a different host for them to stay with during Family Weekend.

Faculty/Family Brunch

If you would like to meet President’ Ferry as well as some of our CUW Faculty and Staff, join us for the President’s Breakfast anytime between 9:30 and 11am on Saturday, Oct. 8th. Please fill out this form so we can plan for the appropriate number of guests.
