Annual Alumni Week Update

We are close to opening registration for 2024, and wanted to share some information to help with cast conversations as you discuss and plan ahead.

  • There will be three choices for accommodation, which all include breakfast in the room rate—Campus accommodation and two hotels close to campus.
  • Public transportation brings you right to campus, however it really helps us all if you opt to stay on campus.
