Reunion Weekend FAQs

GENERAL WEEKEND INFORMATION

Where do I go when I arrive on campus?

Your first stop is our Event Headquarters tent, located between the LaCava Center and Rauch. You'll pick up your wristband, which is required for entry into all events.

Do I need to be there at any certain time to check in?

Nope! Our headquarters tent is open Friday, June 2, from 2:00 to 8:00 p.m. and Saturday, June 3, from 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. If you arrive on Thursday, please go to LaCava Center 270 to check in.

Where can I park?

The following lots are designated for guest parking: lots 1, 3, 6, 7, 8 or 9. Please use the main entrance from Forest Street to access parking. Take a look at our campus map.

Where can I find the program? 

Check out the schedule of events here. A limited number of printed copies will be available at the Event Headquarters Tent.

I don't remember what activities I registered for.

You should have received a confirmation email from events@bentley.edu with your personal itinerary. If you can't find it, we'll be able to print a copy when you arrive. 

What should I wear?

Suggested attire for all events is casual (e.g., shorts, polo shirts, comfortable shoes, etc.) with the exception of the Blue and Gold Society Induction and Dinner, the Night at the Pops and the President’s Club Centennial Celebration, for which we recommend business attire (suit or sport coat and tie for men; dress, skirt or pantsuit for women). Please note that many events take place under tents on grass. If you choose to wear high heels, we recommend wedges!

If you're a member of the President's Club and would like to change for the reception on Saturday evening, designated areas will be available. Check in at Event Headquarters.

Will I receive event admission tickets?

Tickets will be distributed at Symphony Hall to those Blue and Gold Society members who will attend the Boston Pops event. Otherwise, no events require a ticket. 

I registered for on-campus housing. How do I know where I'm staying?

Housing assignments and keys will be distributed at the Event Headquarters tent.

Is my registration refundable?

Reunion Weekend and Centennial Finale events and housing fees are refundable until May 26, 2017, by contacting the Center for Alumni, Parents and Friends at events@bentley.edu or 781.891.2025. We will not issue any refunds for events or housing after May 26, 2017.  

Can I register on site?

You may register on site any time during Reunion Weekend and Centennial Finale at the Event Headquarter Tent. We encourage you to register as early as possible so that we can ensure there is enough food, drink and staff on hand for all guests.

How do I change or add to my registration once it has been submitted?

You may add to your registration by clicking the link in your confirmation email. You may add events and/or guests to your original registration at any time before June 2. To make changes to your registration or housing, please call the Center for Alumni, Parents and Friends at 781.891.2025.

What is the invite-only President's Club reception?

Why should I make a gift to Bentley?

With tuition only covering approximately 90 percent of what it costs to attend Bentley and with 75 percent of our students receiving financial aid, we rely on other avenues to keep our doors open. Honor your time at Bentley by making a gift today!

Will David Ortiz sign an autograph during the Q&A session?

Because we want to respect everyone's time and give as many people as possible a chance to ask questions, there will not be an opportunity for photos or autographs from David Ortiz.

Will the Bentley University bookstore be open?

Yes, the bookstore will be open throughout the weekend. Detailed information regarding the hours of operation will be available at the Event Headquarters Tent. You will receive a 10 percent discount on all insignia items by showing your name badge or wristband.

Is there anything special happening for the 25th and 50th Reunion Classes?
