1) Why should I register and pay to attend our 10th (as opposed to just going to P-Rade for free)?
You should register because it is the only way to really take advantage of Reunions and because it helps support the Class. You will need to register to gain access to on-campus housing and rooms reserved at the Nassau Inn, to attend all meals and other class events, and to receive a costume.

3) The cost of attending Reunions is expensive, especially considering travel costs. Are there discounts available?
Sorry, no. We have made every attempt to keep costs as low as possible. The initial rate of $219 per person represents more than a 10% decrease over 1996’s 10th Reunion.

4) What other expenses will I have to cover for the weekend?
Registration will include meals on Friday and Saturday, beverages Thursday through Saturday, entertainment under our tent every night, and other class-only events like our Casino Royale party (more details soon). You will need to pay for any additional meals, as well as a place to stay (whether you choose to stay on campus or at a local hotel).

6) My spouse/significant other/partner is a member of another Princeton class. How should he/she register?
Your spouse or partner should register as a guest of the Class of 1997 if he/she wants to sign up for on-campus housing, receive a costume, or attend any Class of 1997 meals or events. Otherwise, your spouse or partner can register with his or her class.

7) I have paid my dues for five years straight, do I get a discount?
No. Due to IRS regulations, we are not able to offer a monetary discount. However, perfect dues payers will be given an increased chance of receiving on-campus housing. All available on-campus beds will be divided into two groups. Beds in Group A will be available only to perfect dues payers. Beds in Group B will be available to all classmates. Based upon current attendance estimates and current dues payment information, perfect dues payers are roughly 4-5 times more likely to obtain an on-campus bed than other classmates.
