of 1995 20th Reunion FAQ
How do I sign up—and when?
Online Registration will open in early April. At that time, you will have the
option to register online for events and housing with a credit card. If you
require dorm accommodations, you must register for housing by 5:00 PM on
Friday, May 15. After May 15, housing registration will be closed and rooms
will be assigned for Reunion Weekend.
Can I choose which events to go to, or do I need to attend everything?
You may pick and choose which events you’d like to attend. There is a discount,
though, if you buy a full package that grants you entry to all 20th Reunion
Will tickets be available at the door?
We will accept walk-in attendees on a space-available basis. To be sure you’ll
be able to attend, buy in advance!
Can only members of the Class of 1995 attend?
Guests are welcome, as are alumni friends of the Class of ’95 from other years.
Anyone with an alumni.harvard login can register for Reunion events. Guests who
are not affiliated with Harvard should be added to the registration form of the
‘95 class member with whom they are attending.
I’m attending with another member of the Class of 1995 and want our materials
to be together. What should we do?
You can either register under the login of one member and indicate that the
guest is also an alum, or you can register separately and let the HAA know that
you would like them to link your information.
I want to come to the Reunion but
I’m not sure if I’ll be able to. If I buy tickets now will I be able to get a
refund if my plans change?
Refunds requested in writing (email is preferred) to Serghino_Rene@harvard.edu by May 15 will be granted. Following May 15, we won’t be
able to refund cancelled orders.
When I arrive on campus, where do I check-in for housing and the events?
20th Reunion Headquarters will be located in the MAC Lobby, where you will pick
up your event tickets, nametags, and room keys for the weekend. A registration
desk will also be present at each event for ticket collection.
Where do I park?
Complimentary parking is available at the Harvard Business School Parking lot,
Soldiers Field Parking Garage and 52 Oxford Street Garage. Parking passes will
be emailed to all who register for Reunion before arriving on campus. If you
plan to drive, print out the pass and place it on your dash.
How much will it cost?
Events are priced individually or as a package. Pricing for this year's events
has not yet been set, but last year, the full package of events cost $195
before May 10 and $200 thereafter. Last year, individual events cost between $35
and $100. There was also $30 registration fee per adult. All the events have
open bar, lots and lots of food, good music, etc. We have done our best to keep
the ticket price as low as possible. If we turn a profit, it'll go right back
to the class treasury. Junior Reunions are structured as break-even events. All
registration fees go to covering the cost of the Reunion.
What if I have a dietary restriction?
There will be vegetarian options at all of the 20th Reunion events. If you have
a further dietary restriction, please indicate this on the form when you
register and we will be able to provide alternative meals.
What do I wear?
Thursday and Friday tends to be the more casual of the evening events. However,
people do still “dress to impress” at Reunion. To the Saturday Night event,
people wear cocktail attire, as it’s a more elegant gathering. All daytime
events are casual. Planning to wear high heels? Just know that you will be
walking around the brick sidewalks of Cambridge and on grass at many of the
events. Please remember that the end of May in Cambridge can be chilly and/or
rainy—pack accordingly. Don't leave home without your rain gear and a jacket!
What do I need to know about
The 20th Reunion will be housed in the River Houses and undergraduate dorms.
When registering you will have the chance to indicate which friends you would
like to room near/with. Sheets, pillow, a blanket, towel and soap are included
in your registration and your beds will be made up for you upon arrival. Last
year, the cost for housing was $90 per bed, per night, and went down to $165
for two nights and $215 for three nights to reflect the fact that you will not
need new sheets, pillows, etc. Kids are $45 per night.
house will the 20th Reunion be housed in?
We don’t know yet which house the 20th Reunion will call home, but it will
likely be several of the River Houses.
prices per person? Per room? Per bed?
Prices are per bed, per night. If two people would like to share a bed, the
cost is per bed. Keep in mind these are the same beds we stayed in as
undergrads, and they might feel much smaller now! If you register for one bed,
you will receive one swipe card to get into the Houses, one key to get into
your dorm room, bedding and linens for one person. If you register for two
beds, you will receive two swipes, two keys, two sets of linens, and so on.
I guaranteed housing?
If you register prior to the housing deadline of 5:00 PM on May 15, you will be
guaranteed a bed!
kids be allowed to stay in the river house during reunion, or are those rooms
for adults only?
children are welcome to say with an adult in the houses.
HSA Additional Services:
If you are staying in Dorm Housing, please bear in mind that while the rooms
are quaint and historic, they also have relatively modest conveniences. Harvard
Student Agencies provides Reunion guests with additional services, which you
may arrange directly with them by calling 617-496-3412.
If you are interested in organizing a get-together for your favorite student
group or athletic team (Harvard Crew, The Harvard Ballroom Team, etc.), please

HAA is partnering with World
to provide a reunion childcare camp for children two years and older for the
10th, 15th, and 20th Reunion families on the evenings of Thursday, May 28,
Friday, May 29, and Saturday, May 30. Children will be grouped depending upon
age. The activities offered will be age appropriate and designed to enhance
your child’s experience with us. Learn more about the kids camp and register on
the reunion registration site.
The Kids Camp will be headquartered in the MAC Gym. Active game and activities
will take place on the top floor and on the floors below there are several
dance studios with yoga mats and reunion blankets that we give to the childcare
provider for kids who would like to either do a quiet activity like read a book
or watch a movie, and a room for kids to sleep in too.
The caregiver:child ratios are as follow:
- 2 yr old: 1
staff member to 3 children
- 3-5 years old: 1
staff member to 4 children
- 6-8 years old: 1
staff member to 8 children
- 9-11 years old:
1 staff member to 10 children
- 12+ years old: 1
staff member to 10 children
While kids are welcome at daytime family-friendly events,
the Thursday, Friday, and Saturday evening events are for adults. We discourage
alumni from bringing their children, and offer the Kids Camp in the evenings.
If you have children younger than two years of age and require a babysitting
service while on campus, we recommend contacting Parents
in a Pinch, (617) 739-KIDS.
