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.

Late fee: Registrations received later than May 21, 2010 will be charged a $25 late fee and campus housing cannot be guaranteed.

Refunds: Unfortunately, there can be no refunds made after May 21, 2010, as arrangements for your attendance have already been made by the Alumnae Association.

Please allow 10 business days for processing of registrations. A confirmation will be mailed to you.

Note: The $50 per person registration fee supports the quality of the overall event. The registration fee is included with the purchase of all packages.

Please visit for more Reunion details.

Additional Information:
If you are bringing a guest, you will need to purchase a separate package or the a la carte options plus the registration fee.

There is a reduced package rate for children (see post above). Children are not charged extra to stay in the room with parents. If your child will not be attending any of the events, they can stay in your room for free. Cots may be available.

Also on the subject of children, here is what Jennifer Roberts had to say about childcare: “We do offer a childcare referral service. We collect the names of current students and community members willing to babysit throughout Reunion weekend. Once we receive a request for childcare, we forward the names (which also include a short description of qualifications) onto the alumna, who can then select who to contact. All providers charge a flat fee of $10 per hour per child.”

Reunion Hotel Information

Lexie has contacted hotels in Roanoke to get an idea of pricing for off-campus accommodations:

There are three official Reunion hotels. Mention ‘Hollins’ to receive a discounted rate at these sites.

1) Country Inn and Suites (540) 366-5678 (105-120/night. The discounted Hollins’ rate is $82/night which includes breakfast).
***Many of us will be staying at this hotel. We thought it would be nice if those of us staying off campus stay at the same hotel. As this is one of the closest hotels, it might be wise to book soon as rooms will probably go quickly.

2) Fairfield Inn and Suites (540) 362-4200 ($130-160/night)

3) Hampton Inn (540) 563-5656 ($120/night).

Other hotels in the area that people may be interested in but are do not have a special Hollins rate are:

* Sheraton (540) 563-9300 ($113-140/night)
* Hyatt (540) 366 4700 ($116-130/night)
* Hotel Roanoke (540) 985-5900 ($140-200/night).

Add your blog to our blog

I thought it would be a neat idea to post classmate blogs on the class Reunion blog. It’s a fun way to catch up with the lives of your classmates as we head towards reunion. And, if you have a blog, this could give you motivation to write more and also increase your traffic.

So, if you have a blog that you’d like to share, please email me the link and the name you’d like to be referred to (first & last name, first name & last initial, etc.) and I’ll post it on the sidebar.


Volunteers Needed!

Hello ladies!

We are looking for volunteers to serve as the Hospitality Room Coordinator(s), Parade Marshal(s), Activities Coordinator(s), or on the Networking Committee.

Job Descriptions:

Hospitality Room Coordinator(s): Each class is assigned a hospitality room for which Hollins provides the basics (sodas, bulletin boards, furniture).  The Hospitality Room Coordinator is responsible for purchasing all additional items for the room (using class funds) and decorating the room.  (An excellent position for those who enjoy party planning.)

Parade Marshal(s): A tradition at reunion is the Parade of Classes.  The Parade Marshal ensures that all classmates assemble on time to march in the Parade.  She will also design/create a class banner, signs, or special apparel to be used during the parade.  The Parade Marshal also keeps the class together for the class picture.  (A great role for crafty, organized types!)

Activities Coordinator(s): The Alumnae Office plans campus-wide activities but obviously we will want activities just for our class.   The Activities Coordinator(s) plan and schedule class-specific activities for the weekend.  (Perfect for those who like organizing group activities.)

Networking Committee: This team works together to contact every class member and to gather/verify current contact information.  An integral role in ensuring a high turnout at reunion.  (A terrific way to catch up with old classmates; great for those who love to chat!)

Remember, even if you sign up for a position, you will have the support of the Reunion Chairs as well as the Alumnae Office.  If you would like additional information or are interested in volunteering, please contact us.
