Wristbanding & Registration FAQ
To improve customer service for all alumni returning to Reunions and to provide more security for wristband distribution, this year the Office of Alumni Affairs has made changes to the wristbanding locations.
Major Reunion Alumni
Alumni returning for their major reunion should proceed to their headquarters site to be wristbanded.
Chart listing headquarters sites.
- Satellite Classes of 1972-2007 and their guests register, sign the class ledger book and pick up a Reunion button at Baker Rink. After being wristbanded, satellite alumni and guests should proceed to their corresponding major reunion headquarters site [PDF]. If staying on campus, housing assignments and keycards are available at the headquarters site.
- Satellite Classes of 2008-2013 and 1950-1971 and their guests register at their corresponding major reunion headquarters site [PDF].
Association of Princeton Graduate Alumni
Graduate Alumni and their guests register at the APGA headquarters at Cuyler.
Old Guard and their guests register at Forbes College.
In an effort to address concerns about overcrowding and underage drinking at the 5th and 10th Reunions, only minors with minor wristbands specifically for the "Senior," "5th," or "10th" Reunions will have access to these sites. Any "adult" wristband will allow access to these areas, except in times designated as closed to the class only.
Satellite Reunion and Guest Policy
Satellite classes are those not celebrating their major reunions.
For all satellite classes celebrating their 7th reunion or greater:
- There is no advance registration for satellite class members. When arriving on campus, satellite alumni from Classes of 1972-2007 should proceed to Baker Rink while satellite alumni from Classes of 2008-2013 and 1950-1971 should proceed to their corresponding major reunion headquarters site for registration.
- Satellite alumni should register with their own class, even if they are spouses or children of major reunion alumni, unless they decide to pay the appropriate amount to fully participate in the major reunion meals and costumes.
- Children of alumni who are current students with interim housing approved by the Office of the Alumni Association or the Housing Department may not register with a parent, but instead must purchase a wristband through the Office of the Alumni Association.
- A satellite class member may bring one adult guest (over age 21) and minor children or grandchildren (under age 21) for free.
- A satellite class member may register additional adult guests (including children/grandchildren over age 21) for $100 per person.
- At the time of onsite registration, the satellite class member may register and, if applicable, pay for adult guests. These adult guests may check-in and receive a wristband at a later time without the alumnus being present. The alumnus must be present to register and wristband minor children or grandchildren.
- Minor guests not related to the alumnus are not eligible to receive a wristband.
For all satellite classes of the 5th Reunion (1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 6th):
- Alumni from the satellite classes of the 5th Reunion (2008-2013) may register any number of adult or minor guests. Alumni who have not pre-registered with their class may purchase wristbands for $80 per person at the 5th Reunion headquarters site (Pyne-1901 Courtyard).
- In an effort to address concerns about overcrowding and underage drinking at the 5th and 10th Reunions, only minors with minor wristbands specifically for the "Senior," "5th," or "10th" Reunions will have access to these sites.
Senior Class Guest Policy
- Each member of the senior class may register for Reunions and receive a wristband for free.
- Each member of the senior class may register two guests for $60 each (adult or minor).
Princetoniana Take It or Leave It
Rather than discarding your unwanted Princeton memorabilia and apparel, bring it to the new "Take It or Leave It" tent at Reunions so that it can be discovered by another alumni or guest who will treasure it.
Small Princeton collectibles and apparel, only as big as you can reasonably carry. No furniture or large items, please.
PLEASE NOTE: We will not be keeping a log book of items or those who drop/retrieve the items. Leaving an item does not entitle giver to an acknowledgement of donation and receipts will not be given. Neither the Office of the Alumni Association nor the University is responsible for the state of items, including damage.
The "Take It or Leave It" tent on the East Pyne South Lawn.
Items may be dropped off at any time between 9 a.m. Thursday, May 29, and 8 p.m. on Saturday, May 31. Any items not claimed by 9 p.m. on Saturday evening will be disposed of.
In addition to providing campus shuttles and hotel buses, the University is introducing a new program called Reunions Rover, a student-driven golf cart transport service for alumni and guests with mobility issues and in need of a ride during Reunions weekend, overseen by University Services. The rovers will be clearly marked and will make continuous loops around campus. Please feel free to wave the student driver down if a ride to your destination would be helpful.
