Alumni Weekend Frequently Asked Questions

Find answers to frequently asked questions about Alumni Weekend below.

 Do I need to print and bring my registration email with me?

No, it is not necessary. We will have your printed itinerary available at registration.

 Where is registration located?

In Method Atrium (320 East Superior Street).

 Where can I pick up my nametag and itinerary if I didn't make it to registration?

If you miss regular registration hours (Friday 8am-5pm and Saturday 8am-1pm), we will have your nametag(s) at your first paid event.

 Do I have to bring my nametag to every event?

Your nametag is your nametag for the whole weekend, so please keep it with you for all events.

 If something comes up, can I cancel and receive a refund?

We understand that sometimes life interferes with our best laid plans, so we will accept cancellations. Cancellations must be received by April 22 to be entitled to a refund. You may still cancel after April 22, but a refund cannot be guaranteed for cancellations made after that date.

 If I don't pre-register, can I still attend?

Yes, you may come to registration at Method Atrium. Keep in mind that activities or meals you are interested in attending may be full to capacity, and your reservations will be made only if space is available.

 My class is not celebrating a major reunion; will there still be things for me to do?

Yes. While we have some special activities and recognition for those classes in a reunion year, this is truly an all-alumni weekend. Most events held during Alumni Weekend are relevant to all alumni, with the exception of class dinners on Saturday night. Any alumnus/a, along with guests and family members, are welcome to register for any scheduled event.

 How do I take advantage of the complimentary parking?

Parking will be available on the Chicago Campus from 9 a.m. on Friday until 10 a.m. on Monday in the parking structure (Lot C) located between St. Clair Street and Fairbanks Court, just north of Northwestern Memorial Hospital. You may enter the lot on Superior Street or Huron Street. You will need to pull a ticket for entry. Then, at registration, please request a parking card that will allow you to exit and enter the structure throughout Alumni Weekend.

 How can I find out if someone from my class is attending?
