How will I remember what I registered for?

You will receive an electronic confirmation by email, regardless of whether you registered online or via the registration card. In addition, when you check in at the registration desk during Reunion, you will receive a personalized itinerary along with your name badge and pocket agenda.

Are children welcome at all Reunion events? Is childcare available?

Children are welcome at many events. However, the Friday night Class Dinners and the Saturday night Awards Reception and Banquet are an opportunity for alumni and their spouses and/or guests to gather.

If you need a sitter, we recommend contacting TLC for Kids, a licensed temporary child-care service. Phone: 314-725-5660.

What events should I attend?

We encourage you to attend as many Reunion events as you can. The schedule has social, educational and sight-seeing options for you and your guests. All events (free and paid) require registration in order to hold a spot for you and your guest(s).

What if I have special dietary needs?

When you register online or via the packet that will be mailed to you, please be sure to list dietary needs or food allergies in the space provided. If you’ve already registered and don’t remember if you listed your needs, please email medicalalumni@wustl.edu or by phone at 314-935-9682 or 877-816-2586.

Is transportation available from the airport?

Please visit the Transportation page for transportation options from Lambert-St. Louis International Airport.

How will we get around from the hotel to the medical campus?

Shuttles will be provided from the Chase Park Plaza during the times when there are activities outside of the hotel (including those on the medical campus and tours at other locations). The Parkway Hotel is located on the medical campus. Additionally, the Parkway Hotel offers a complimentary shuttle for guests to many attractions in the St. Louis area including Forest Park.

Please check your welcome packet or ask an Alumni & Development staff member if you have questions about transportation.

What else should I know?

All university spaces are non-smoking, unless otherwise indicated.

The university no longer sells bottled water or offers bottled water at events and meetings because of the environmental impact.

Throughout the Reunion weekend, we request that all alumni and their guests wear their Reunion name tags when participating in Reunion activities.
