Ask a Question

Where will I check in when I arrive?

Check in will be held in Burchfield Lounge (in the Wertz Student Center) on Friday, May 16 from 3 p.m. until 9 p.m. and on Saturday, May 17 from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. If you arrive outside of those hours, you will need to contact a member of safety and security at (570) 321-4064 to check in.

If I choose the gold packages, which residence hall will I live in?

The Commons and Williams are the two residence halls being used for alumni weekend.

Can I choose my roommate?

Certainly! If you would like to have a roommate, please indicate your preference on your registration form. Most rooms have 2 twin beds. We have limited triples, available on a first-come, first-served basis. If you would like to stay in a triple, please call Amy (Dowling) Reyes at 570.321.4134.

What if I don't have a roommate? Will one be randomly assigned to me?

No way! If you do not have a preferred roommate, you will be assigned to a single room.

Can I choose my suitemate(s)?

If you have a preferred suitemate, you will indicate your preference on your registration form. Although preferred suitemates are not guaranteed, we promise to try our best to accommodate all requests!

Will I need to bring my own linens?

Each person choosing the room and board option receives a linen bundle containing a fitted sheet, flat sheet, pillowcase, thermal blanket, bath towel, hand towel and washcloth. Anything else you’d like to bring is at your option. **It is strongly recommended that you bring a heavy blanket, as May in Williamsport can be unseasonably cold!

How will I access the residence halls?

Upon check in, you will receive a key to your room and an Alumni Weekend ID that will give you proxy access to your residence hall.

Do I need to carry my ID with me throughout the weekend?

We strongly encourage you to carry your ID with you, as you will need it to access the residence halls and will swipe it to gain access to the dining hall for your meals and at the other ancillary events.

Are we celebrating class reunions during Alumni Weekend 2014?

Yes!  We are thrilled to share that we are celebrating reunions at Alumni Weekend 2014. 

Are children welcome at alumni weekend activities?

Children are welcome at alumni weekend although there are no specific children’s activities planned with the exception of the Family Friendly Picnic on Saturday afternoon.

If I'm not staying on campus, do I have to register for events ahead of time, or may I simply "walk in."

Advance registration is required for all events except the alumni classes. 

Where should I park on campus?

Ticketing will be suspended for alumni weekend with the exception of designated 24 hour staff parking spots, and handicapped spots. Please feel free to park in any lot that is most convenient for you.
