The ONU Student Senate is so very excited to Family & Siblings Day 2022 on Saturday, September 17th!

Family & Siblings Day is a student-hosted event for all to come and celebrate being a Polar Bear. Join us for the Ada Harvest & Herb Festival, food trucks, live music, a Greek Open House, a performance from Fearless SheANYgans, and The Parent Trap movie on the Tundra by Student Planning Committee (SPC). 

All registered families will receive an email with a detailed list of events and information. 

Registered families will check-in will be held in front of the Freed Center via their order number to collect their meal tickets, bags, and materials. Parking will be available across campus. Throughout the day, parking will be limited due to the nature of the weekend's events, but we suggest the Freed Center, King Horn, Biggs, and Engineering parking lots. Please let your student guide the family and friends as they join us on campus, or reference the map below. 

T-shirts are on a first-come-first-serve basis. We will offer two opportunities for t-shirt pick up - once in the morning and once in the afternoon. You will need to show your confirmation email with the five-digit order number to the student–volunteers and state the sizes you want. We have sizes ranging from youth small to adult 4xL. T-shirt pick up will be located in the space between the Chapel and Heterick Memorial Library. There will be no additional shirts for sale. 

Throughout the day, there will also be a donation table for the Ada Food Pantry and Beatitudes Store in Ada. We are looking for canned food donations and clothing donations if you are able to bring a few to campus, but it is not required. We want to give back to the Ada community and would love for you to help us do so! These donations can be dropped off in front of McIntosh Center on your way to pick up a t-shirt after registration. 

The concert on the Tundra happening from 5-7 pm includes a performance by local Cincinnati band, The Wonderlands! If you would like to bring yard chairs or blankets for the concert, you are more than welcome. There will be seating provided by the food trucks, but it will be as available. 

Registeration closed on Labor Day.
