Q:

Will the Campus Store be open over Reunion Weekend?

The Campus Store will be open on Thursday and Friday from 9 a.m. - 4 p.m. and Saturday from 9 a.m. - 5 p.m. Purchase raffle tickets for a chance to win a basket of Reserve goodies! The drawing will take place at the Family Picnic on Saturday at 1 p.m.!

Q:

Who usually attends Reunion Weekend?

A:

Reserve hosts Reunion Weekend each year in June in five-year cycles. This year, classes ending in 2 or 7 will officially reunite on campus. Many current and past faculty attend, including Board of Trustees, Alumni Association Board and Board of Visitors. It’s not unusual for the 5th Reunion to have over 30 classmates attend this traditional event and guests are welcome. Adult only events are the Bluegrass on the Green and Reunion Gala. Pre-Covid, we’ve seen around 400 alumni and guests attend Reunion Weekend. Get ready for a fun party!

Q:

Is there young alumni pricing for Reunion Weekend?

A:

Yes! By using this special 5th Reunion registration page, you are automatically receiving a $20 discount for Bluegrass on the Green, $5 discount on the Celebrate Reserve Family Picnic and $20 discount for the Reunion Gala. If you accidentally sign up for Reunion using our general registration page, we will adjust the pricing for you!

Q:

Can my friend from another class attend this Reunion?

A:

We know that the Reserve bonds run deep. If someone in Classes 2014-2020 would like to attend Reunion Weekend, they may use this registration page and we will be sure to seat them with your class during the Gala. They will also receive the same young alumni rate as you are receiving. All older classes must register using this page: wra.net/reunion.

Q:

Are dorms available to stay on campus overnight?

A:

Unfortunately, we are unable to offer on-campus accommodations this year. We suggest the following local option:

Hilton Garden Inn located at 8971 Wilcox Drive in Twinsburg.

Hotel contact information: (330) 405-4488

  • Mention that you are with the WRA room block for a rate of $93/night.

  • WRA Shuttles will be provided throughout the weekend.

Q:

A:

Yes! The Campus Store will be open at various times throughout the weekend. We will post the hours and pop-up locations soon.

Who should I contact if I plan to play in the soccer or lacrosse game?

A:

Soccer players: please contact Herb Haller ‘85 at hallerh@wra.net.

Q:

Who else is attending Reunion from other classes?

Q:

My younger sibling/friend is interested in attending Reserve. Can I schedule a meeting or interview with an Admissions associate?

A:
