When is Reunion Weekend?

July 22 - 24, 2016.

When will Reunion invitations be mailed?

Watch for your save-the-date postcard to arrive in October and your official reunion invitation to arrive in the mail in mid-May. In the meantime, check out the full schedule of events here!

Are there kid-friendly events?

Yes! The Family BBQ Picnic on Saturday afternoon is great fun for kids, including a bounce house and photo booth. After the picnic, children are invited to attend storytime in the Library with Brother Richard. Please note, the class dinners on Saturday evening on the Chapel Lawn are not suitable for children, and currently we are not able to provide childcare options.

Where do I check in once I arrive on campus?

Check-in will be at the Soda Center, on the back side of campus.  Just follow the signs directing you to the Soda Center, where you can pick up your name tag, grab a weekend schedule, and receive your dorm keys. Check-in will begin Friday at noon and continue until Saturday afternoon.

How should I dress for Reunion Weekend?

The dress code for most of the weekend is resort casual, but the Saturday reunion dinners are semi-formal. Dinner for most classes will be outside on the Chapel lawn, so be sure to dress for the weather and wear grass-friendly shoes.

Will I need a permit to park on campus? Where will I be able to park?

You will not need a permit to park on campus during Reunion Weekend. Just follow parking direction signs around campus.

I’m staying at local hotel instead of the on-campus dorms. Will shuttles be available between my hotel and the campus during reunion weekend?

Yes! Complimentary shuttle service will be available on Saturday, July 23 from 4 - 11 pm. The shuttle will run to and from downtown Lafayette, the Lafayette Park Hotel and campus. Be sure to pick up a shuttle schedule at the Soda Center when you check-in!
