When will Reunion 2017 registration open and close?

Online registration opens in January 2017.

Do I have to register and purchase tickets before Reunion?

We encourage you take advantage of early-bird pricing, however walk-in registration will be available for the majority of Reunion activities, including most on campus activities and formal class parties. If you need any assistance, please email the Reunion Team or call 847-467-2586.

Who attends Reunion Weekend?

Kellogg alumni from Reunion classes and their families are welcome to attend. This year, all classes ending in 2 or 7 will celebrate milestone reunions, and the class of 2016 will return for its first Reunion. We will also be welcoming back all Evening & Weekend Program alumni.

How do I register a guest who is also a Kellogg alumna/alumnus?

If your guest is also celebrating a Reunion this year, you should each register separately. If your guest is an alumna/alumnus who is not celebrating a Reunion this year, you can register that person as your guest.

Are children welcome at Reunion events?

Children 18 and younger are welcome at all on-campus activities free of charge, with the exception of the Saturday Formal Class Parties and the Children's Workshop. There is a $25 pre-registration fee for this program. If you would like to explore child care options instead, see below.
