EVENT REGISTRATION

Do I need to register in advance?
Pre-registration is mandatory for Saturday night's event as well as for on-campus housing. We strongly encourage pre-registration for all other events, to ensure proper space and meal planning. Walk-ups will be accommodated on a space-available basis. 

Can I reserve a table at an event?
Our experience has been that assigning seating and/or reserving tables in advance does not work well. Class banners and class table cards will indicate seating areas to facilitate locating your classmates. At all events there will be extra seating so that you and your friends should be able to sit together. On-time arrival will help with seating preferences.

How will I know that my registration has been received and processed?
When you register, you will be sent a confirmation via email. Late registrants will be accommodated on a space-available basis and should go to the Reunion Registration area in Garey Hall upon arrival to campus.

Are refunds allowed?
Cancellations up until May 23, 2014 will be refunded.

 

ON-CAMPUS HOUSING REGISTRATION

What if I arrive on campus outside of On-Campus Housing registration hours?
If you have registered for West Campus or St. Monica accommodations and arrive after hours, there will be instructions at the registration area at Garey Hall on how to contact the on-call staff member.
