Rosemont strives to make Reunion Weekend affordable and accessible for all participants. The registration fee partially subsidizes general costs including tent and golf cart rental, linens, refreshments for non-ticketed events, and facilities and public safety staffing. This registration fee, along with other fees you may pay to attend specific events, helps the College partially offset the overall cost of Reunion Weekend.
