(also known as the IAQ: Infrequently Answered Questions)

Here are some questions that either have been asked or everyone's just too shy to ask them yet. So we'll make it easy and answer them for you. It cuts down on all of the social awkwardness as you work up the nerve to ask and then we pretend we know the answer while we quickly search around on the Carleton site looking for anything related.

If you have a question of your own, please ask it on the class FaceBook site - chances are the folks there will know or can find out for you. Or you can always send me a message directly and I can chase it down and add it to this list.


When is it again?
Thursday-Sunday, June 15-18, 2017. From 3 pm Thursday through noon Sunday. 

Is reunion free?
No. But compared to the expense of Carleton tuition, it is damn cheap.

When do people sign up to come?
Online registration opens in early March at http://go.carleton.edu/reunion. Housing will be assigned on a first-come, first-served basis.  Register early for the best chance to be housed with our class! The final registration deadline is June 1, but if you sign up before May 1, you’ll receive a 5% discount. 

How do I find out who’s coming?
Once you sign up, your name and guests will be listed on the reunion attendance page – it’s updated daily. This is also a good excuse to call or email people you want to see – tell them you’ll be there and that you hope to see them.

Can I redo my comps?

When should I arrive?
Check-in opens at 3 p.m. Thursday.

Where will we be housed?
(don't know yet)

If I make arrangements with my comps advisor, can I try them again?

What if I want to room with a friend?
Indicate on your registration form that you’re planning to room with someone and indicate their name. Once the Alumni Office receives registrations for all roommates, they will assign you a room.

How much does Reunion cost?
Reunion at Carleton is a bargain compared to most college and high-school reunions. (more info on this later)

If I bring the 5.25" floppy disk that my comps are on, can I print them?

What will my kids do?
(more info on this later)

Can my kids do comps?

What will my spouse/partner do?
Never fear, they do not need to hang out with us the entire time. There will be a packed program featuring Carleton faculty and alumni speakers, live music, Arb walks, yoga, etc., or they can explore Northfield, or take a nap in the Libe.

What about people with special needs?
The College can accommodate a range of needs from dietary allergies to accessibility issues. Contact the alumni office as early as possible to discuss your situation, or add specific notes to your registration form. Anyone who has requested a special meal in consultation with the dining services’ chef should check in with catering staff at each meal so they know how to find you.

Where can I find more information?
Visit the general reunion web site, http://go.carleton.edu/reunion. Schedule updates, final costs, menus and more will be updated there.

Can I redo my comps if I make a large donation to the class?
Let's talk.
