Children / Babysitting

Children are welcome participants at reunion. The cost for children ages 6 to 10 is $50 per child and for children 11 to 18 is $75 per child for the entire weekend and includes all meals. Bring your own cribs, sleeping bags, and strollers. Indicate number and ages of all children on the registration form. Alumnae interested in babysitting services during the reunion weekend for children ages 3 and up should contact Alumnae Relations for more information: reunion@hollins.edu or 800-Tinker1 (800-846-5371).


You are invited to sing with the alumnae choir at the Sunday morning memorial service. All are welcome. Please check on the registration form.


Activities during reunion are casual, and informal dress is appropriate. However, Saturday night's dinner on Front Quad is dressier. You may wish to wear closed-toe shoes for Friday’s dinner in the Kirby Riding Ring and bring a sweater for outdoor meals.


Early bird discount if you register by May 16. Reunion fees help defray the cost of a great event and cover such things as: catering; rental of tables, chairs, and linens; flowers; entertainment; special speakers; staffing; class photos; and hospitality rooms. The Parade of Classes and the Alumnae Celebration are complimentary and open to everyone. The a la carte registration fee will be waived for non-alumnae guests attending only one meal. Registrations received after the May 16 early bird deadline will be charged a $25 fee.

Refund requests, less a $25 processing fee, may be made if your reservation is cancelled prior to or on May 16, 2014. Unfortunately, refunds cannot be made after May 16, 2014, as arrangements for your attendance have already been made by the Alumnae Relations office.

Each class will have a hospitality room with a bulletin board. You are encouraged to bring mementos to decorate creatively. An initial supply of cups, ice, soft drinks, and mixers will be provided.

Housing On Campus

Remember that residence halls are not air-conditioned and there are communal bathrooms. Spouses and children are asked to share bathrooms with alumnae. No triple rooms are available. Hollins provides necessary bed linens, light blankets, and towels. You may want to bring an extra blanket, extra pillow, or a fan; when packing, think camp. Classes are assigned to residence halls on the basis of the number of classmates expected at reunion. Please register before the May 16 deadline to ensure your rooming preferences. If you register late, we cannot guarantee you a room with your class.


When you arrive on campus for reunion, you will pick up your reunion registration packet which will include tickets for all registered meals and events. Remember to bring your tickets with you to each meal. Meals are provided by the Hollins food service staff in Hollins facilities and are informal, with a dressier event on Saturday evening on Front Quad. You may wish to wear closed-toe shoes to the Friday dinner at the Riding Center and a light jacket or sweater for outdoor meals.


Class photographs will be taken immediately following the Saturday morning celebration. A complimentary class photo will be sent to each alumna who attends reunion. Additional reunion weekend photos will be available to view on the Hollins website.
