Reunion FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions

What will the weather be like?

Mid-September in Baltimore can be sunny and warm, or rainy and cool. Our events will be both in and outdoors and while days may be warm, evenings may be chilly. Packing layers will help.

Please check the forecast before making the journey to campus.

What is the Reunion dress code?

Casual! Reunion is meant to be fun and an easy time to reconnect. Everyone is encouraged to wear Notre Dame gear at Flashback Friday on Friday, September 15. For the rest, anything goes.

What meals are available?

Dinner on Friday, all meals on Saturday, and brunch on Sunday are Reunion-specific (and most require a cost). Advance registration is strongly encouraged by Friday, September 8. Walk-up registration will be available on the day-of for meals and all events.

Hungry for more? Breakfast and lunch/brunch are available for the "on your own" buffet experience in Doyle Dining Hall. Dining Hall menus can be found here.

Coffee is available for purchase in the dining hall during operating hours. (Coffee is $2.25.)

I have dietary restrictions. Is there a way to accommodate my needs?

Where can I stay?

Please review our lodging page for information about area hotels. The University has secured room blocks at local hotels. Campus dormitories are not available this year.

Where do I go when I arrive on campus?

Please make your first stop the Doyle Lawn Tent to check in/register and receive your Reunion materials. A printed schedule of events will be provided upon arrival. 

Check-in/registration will be open from 8 a.m. - 8 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, and 8 - 10 a.m. on Sunday.

Are children welcome?

Young children are welcome to attend Reunion. Children's activities (think arts and crafts, board games, sidewalk chalk, etc.) will be available in Noyes Alumnae House and in Doyle Tent (during Flashback Friday and the Crab Feast) for children to use at their leisure.

Unfortunately, we are unable to provide organized childcare and supervision while children are occupied with activities. Parents: please plan accordingly. 

Will I get to meet current students at Reunion?

Yes! Current students will be part of Reunion activities throughout the weekend and there will be plenty of opportunities to connect.

What's the Common Read?

Every year all students, faculty, and staff are encouraged to read a common selection to inspire discussion. Alumnae and Alumni are welcome to join the conversation!

This year's selection is The Nightingale by Kristen Hannah. Friday morning's activities include a discussion about the book. This will be an active discussion--much like a book club. Please check your local library or bookstore to pick up a copy of the book.

How do I register for Reunion?

Click register now to redirect to the registration page. The page will prompt you to follow the steps to complete the process. If you are bringing a guest(s), the page will ask you to complete your own registration first and then register each person in your party separately (you'll need to check the appropriate boxes to make it known if guests will be joining you at all or part of Reunion). If you'll be flying solo at Reunion, you will see an additional page to confirm your status. You'll be asked to enter your name again under each event you've selected.

I have more questions. Who can I contact?

We're eager to hear from you! Please connect with the Office of Alumnae and Alumni Relations at alum@ndm.edu or call 410-532-3166.
