* Sibling Sleepover – current CUI students living in the residence halls may host their sibling the evening of Saturday, January 31 at no additional cost.  Siblings must be of the same sex out of respect for the roommates and must be at least 5 years old.  No formal programming is planned, although we hope your CUI student will take his/her sibling to dinner in the cafeteria ($8) and enjoy the basketball games ($6).  A convenient time to pick siblings up is the Family Brunch on Sunday, February 1 ($7). A registration form is required as well as an Assumption of Risk Waiver.  (Hover over each form name and right click to view the form).  Forms may be sent via email to or handed in at the Information Booth on Saturday, January 31 from 11:00 am – 2:00 pm which will be located in front of the CU Center.
