Where do I check in?

The Keating Center will serve as home base for check-in and the location of our hospitality station during the weekend.

How do I register online?

You may fully register online by completing two forms. The first form is the reunion signup where you will indicate all of the events you plan to attend. The second form is where you will pay for registration and purchase the optional lunch for Saturday afternoon.

Will current students be on campus?

Yes! Reunion will be taking place during the beginning of the spring semester. Please visit the college and enjoy yourselves but also respect the campus as a home to current students. Student dormitories and private spaces are off limits unless invited.

Current students are invited to participate in most of the reunion activities. Certain events like the Career Panel are structured especially with student attendance in mind.

Will there be a Center of the Universe Party?

A Center of the Universe Party (COUP) will take place on either Friday, Feb. 16 or Saturday, Feb. 17 in the evening. The COUP is planned by students for students. Alumnae/i are invited to attend and have fun too!

How does food work for the weekend?

In order to help keep registration costs low, most food options during the weekend will be pay-as-you-go. That means there will be food trucks or other offerings so you can pay individually for your food. You can also eat off campus or pack a lunch. A prepaid barbecue meal or boxed lunch is an option on Saturday afternoon for either the poolside barbecue event or the NovoNetwork lunch. You may purchase your Saturday lunch option when your register for reunion. You may attend these events without purchasing a pre-paid lunch.

Can I bring my family?

Absolutely! Most events will be family friendly but you may want to secure childcare for events like the Novo Talks or Miniclasses where small children can cause a disturbance. A registration fee is required of all individuals in your party, 18 years and older.

Will there be child care provided?

As most events will be family friendly, child care for the whole weekend is not necessary for those bringing children. We are working on a list of possible child care options should you wish to seek additional child care.

I attended New College but did not graduate … can I still come?

Absolutely! We are all one big family!

How do I signup to present at the Alumnae/i Storytelling Nostalgia Coffee House?

If you wish to present at the Alumnae/i Storytelling session on Friday night (2/16), please complete the form found here: Nostalgia Coffee House Signup. Please note that slots are limited and our selection of presenters will be made favoring an overall diversity of themes and NC eras. Although we can’t guarantee everyone a presentation time, all storytellers who give their consent will have their stories compiled for later digital publishing. Be sure to enter your contact information so that NCAA Board Member and Reunion Co-Chair Leslie Reinherz ’70 can get in touch with you.
