Registration FAQs

Why do I need to register online?
Register online to let your classmates know that you are coming. Everyone who registers will have their name appear on the “Who’s Coming Back” list.

In addition to letting your classmates know, the Office of Alumni Engagement needs to be able to plan accordingly for all the events that take place over Homecoming and Reunion Weekend. Without an accurate count of how many alumni are planning to attend the events, we cannot ensure the experience we hope to deliver.

Reunion FAQs

Should I bring my children to my reunion party?
Probably not. Reunion parties are a time for classmates to relax, catch-up with one another and are not geared toward children. Saturday is a great time for families but can be a long day for young children, so a good night’s sleep on Friday is important. The following childcare providers offer services in Winston Salem.

What do I wear to my reunion?
While there is no dress code of what to wear for your reunion party, we find most parties are casual or whatever makes you feel fun and festive unless otherwise noted on your class page. You can refer to photos from Homecoming and Reunion Weekend 2018 for some ideas.

Where do I pick up my reunion party tickets?
You can pick up your reunion party tickets at the Homecoming Welcome Center. The Homecoming Welcome Center will be located outside under the tent located on Manchester Plaza next to Reynolda Hall and will be open from 11 a.m. – 10:00 p.m. on Friday, October 29.

How can I sit with my friends at the game?
Game tickets purchased through homecoming registration will be separated into class blocks. If there is a group of people you would like to sit with, one person needs to purchase tickets for the entire group. Otherwise, you will be seated in the same general area as other members of your class. If you purchase a block of tickets, you will be responsible for distributing the tickets to your friends and family members. If you need to coordinate a block of more than 20 tickets, contact the WF ticket office directly: 1-888-758-DEAC (3322).
