Please check the forecast before making the journey to campus.

What is the Reunion dress code?

Casual! Reunion is meant to be a fun and easy time to reconnect. Any particular dress code or suggestion will be added to specific event descriptions in the schedule. Otherwise, dress for comfort.

What meals are available and what's on the menu? What if I have dietary restrictions?

There are a few events where food will be served: luncheons, dinners, and various gatherings. All menus include options for vegans, vegetarians, and those who are gluten-free. Though if you have a particular dietary need (even if it's one of the aforementioned), please inform us by Thursday, September 27 so our dining service may prepare.
