Why is there a late fee? Is there an "Early Bird" discount?

There is a late fee (applied after May 15) to encourage attendees to register in a timely fashion so that nametags and Reunion packets may be made, rooms assigned, meal counts given to Food Service and to class "hostesses", seating arrangements made for classes, and china, linen, sheet, and towel rentals arranged.

Will there be someone available to help me with my luggage?

Yes, there will be porters in Main Hall who will help you. They work for "tips".

How is my roommate chosen?

The Office of Alumnae and Alumni matches you with the person you requested. If you did not request a roommate, we assign you to room with someone else in your class. Before sending in your registration, please discuss the rooming issue with your preferred roommate, as oftentimes one person lists a different roommate preference or lists an alumna who is not attending the reunion.
