Bringing a younger sibling with you to orientation?

The Sibling Program is open to younger siblings of new Hawkeyes, aged 9-16. The program is free and occurs on the second day of our two-day programs, allowing siblings to get acquainted with the University of Iowa. Led by Orientation Leaders, siblings will have opportunities to engage in academic sessions, the University's Museum of Natural History, and eat lunch in a campus dining hall - just like their older siblings!
