If you would like to change your registration, please email firstname.lastname@example.org by May 1, 2022.
Please register under your reunion year. All orchestra dinners and receptions will be listed. You have the option to choose if you would rather attend your class dinner or the orchestra dinner on both Friday and Saturday evenings.
All Reunion Weekend participants are required to pre-register. Unregistered guests will not be allowed into dining or entertainment venues, including Stav Hall, the Pause, Campus Green, and Mellby tent.
While children may attend Reunion Weekend, guests should keep in mind that activities are planned with an adult audience in mind. All children must be pre-registered regardless of age.
Children will be held to the same vaccine and testing standards as adults (see Vaccines and Testing). Reunion attendees must be prepared to show proof of vaccination or a negative test for any children under 18 who are members of their party.
Due to the complexity of assigning rooms, we are not able to accommodate requests for rooming “near” a classmate or friend. Each class will be assigned its own dorm, so regardless of where you are housed, you will be close to your classmates. You and your classmates will also have access to a shared common space in the dorm where you can gather.
When registering, you will request a bed in a room for yourself. You will repeat the process for each member of your registration party. If you want to room with a specific person, you will need to list their name on your registration form.
A la carte rooming asks you to select the number of nights you will be staying. It is not necessary to designate the night you are staying as the rooms are not turned over during Reunion Weekend. St. Olaf will have your room assignment at check-in.
The milestone 50th (1972) and 25th (1997) reunion classes are invited to stay overnight on Thursday. All other reunion classes and St. Olaf Orchestra alumni are able to stay in the dorms on Friday and Saturday nights.
Alumni celebrating their 50th, 55th, 60th, 65th, 70th, or 75th reunion will be housed in Ytterboe Hall, which is air conditioned. All other alumni will be housed in dormitories without air conditioning.
Each dorm room comes with a microwave and mini refrigerator.
You will be provided with basic bedding for your stay, including pillow, two flat sheets, pillowcase, towel, washcloth, and blanket. For your comfort, you may wish to bring a fitted sheet (Twin XL), pillow, and an extra blanket.
St. Olaf will host a Volunteer Recognition Dinner on Thursday night. All reunion committee members are invited to this event. If you did not serve on your reunion committee, Thursday dinner is not included in the all weekend or a la carte packages. You may purchase dinner in Stav Hall or visit one of Northfield’s many wonderful restaurants. A few of our favorites:
If space allows, you will be able to register on-site for class meals. Please visit the registration desk in Buntrock Commons and speak with a staff member.
During your online registration, you will be asked to indicate any dietary restrictions or allergies.
Refunds and Cancelations
St. Olaf College reserves the right to cancel Reunion Weekend if circumstances related to the pandemic make it unsafe for large groups to gather. The decision to cancel will be made by the COVID-19 Campus Reopening Lead. Every effort will be made to announce a decision at least three weeks prior to the start of the event (May 13, 2022) to allow guests to recoup travel costs.
In the event that Reunion Weekend is canceled, St. Olaf will reschedule the following reunions: 50th Reunion, 25th Reunion, and the St. Olaf Orchestra Reunion. Other Reunion Weekend events will not be rescheduled.
If Reunion Weekend is canceled by St. Olaf, guests will be refunded the cost of their registration, minus a processing fee of $20 per guest.
In the event a guest tests positive for COVID-19 and is unable to attend Reunion Weekend, they will be refunded the full cost of their registration.
St. Olaf will not reimburse guests for travel expenses if Reunion Weekend is canceled. We strongly encourage attendees to book refundable airfares, rental car reservations, etc.
