Reunion FAQs

Do I need to register?

Your registration helps us have a head count for meals, space, and equipment.  The more information we have in advance about who is coming, the better prepared we are to feed you, have a chair for you, and have appropriate equipment for the service project.  When you arrive for the weekend (or the day), you will need to check in at our registration table to receive your badge and pay for events that are outstanding. Because there will be alcohol at several of the events during the weekend, we will also be providing wristbands at registration.  

I want to stay on campus. How does that work?

Alumni and guests are welcome to stay in our boys’ dorm space in the basement of Old Main.  There are 18 dorms available. Please be aware that there are no locks on the doors, and Miller School is not responsible for personal property.  People are also welcome to bring their RVs and park in designated spaces. There will be signs indicating where those spaces are. The cost for staying on campus is $25/night, and you will need to bring your own twin bed linens and bath towels if you stay in the dorms.

Please be aware that if you are staying in a dorm room, the dorms will not be open until Thursday, May 31.  We ask that no one plan to arrive on campus earlier than that date as we will be using the week between graduation and Reunion to prepare the campus for guests and activities. 

Where are the restrooms?

There are restrooms in the Bistro/Canteen. There are restrooms in Caton Hall on the first floor (not ground floor).  Old Main has restrooms on the first floor near the dining hall.

Are your facilities handicap accessible?

Most of our activities will be at ground level or on the first floor of one of our buildings.  If you need assistance, please stop by the registration table inside the Bistro/Canteen.

Do I have to attend all of the events?

Our agenda for the weekend is built to offer something for everyone, but we realize that you may want some time to reminisce with your classmates and friends or revisit your favorite spot on The Hill.  While we hope you take advantage of some of the new activities, please feel free to participate only in the activities that are most appealing to you.

I want to play golf during my visit.  Can you tell me more?

David Graves, class of 1987, is coordinating the golf outings.  He has several tee times available on Saturday. If you register for golf through the Miller School Reunion registration site, you will receive an email indicating that you should reach out to Mr. Graves to confirm your registration and choose a tee time.  The cost of $65 includes a cart.

What is the dress code for the weekend?

The Alumni Association banquet has traditionally been a coat and tie event.  This year, however, we ask that participants dress in business casual attire.  The dining hall may be a bit warm in June, and we don’t want guests to be uncomfortable.  We do, however, want to pay proper respect to our special guest speaker and to the distinction of the dinner.  Please dress comfortably for all other events of the weekend. Some may want to wear something a little more festive for Sunset on the Hill, but that is a matter of personal preference.

I’ve come to Homecoming in the past.  Why did you change the date?

Most of our faculty leave The Hill shortly after graduation to enjoy their summer elsewhere or to take a much-needed break.  By moving the date up a week, we hope to have some of our faculty mingle with guests during the weekend.

Can anyone attend the Alumni Association business meeting?

Absolutely!  The Alumni Association raises money to support different activities at The School.  Each June, they elect new officers and discuss the year ahead.
