Welcome home, 0s and 5s, and 1s and 6s!
In order to protect the health and safety of you and your classmates during the ongoing and evolving pandemic, in-person Reunion activities for June 2020 were postponed until June of 2021.  

On June 11-13, 2021, we'll have a major extravaganza with alumnae in the classes of the 0’s and 5’s AND 1’s and 6’s, together! 
Please stay in touch and connect with us if we may assist in any way.
Visit our COVID-19 Preparedness page for relevant updates, information, and resources. 
We invite you to come home, reminisce, and reconnect with friends who were part of your life on Mount Ida. Find a piece of your past, kindle new friendships, and connect with the future of this extraordinary school, June 11-13, 2021!
If you’re interested in getting involved with planning, or have ideas and suggestions for the weekend programming, please contact the Alumnae Relations Office at 1-866-833-1814 or email

  • Housing - Frequently Asked Questions

    Dorm Rooms
    All the comforts you remember from days gone by await you! Your room is equipped with a single bed, dresser, closet or armoire, pillow, bed linens, towels, a lamp, and a fan. You are welcome to bring along anything that might enhance your dormitory stay, such as your own pillow.
    Our dormitory alcoves have a refrigerator and a microwave. If you anticipate late-night chats, by all means load up your car with fixins’—snacks, beverages, baked goods…anything goes. If you’re planning to enjoy some libations, please remember to pack the appropriate openers, and, of course, drink responsibly!
    Children and Spouses in the Dorms
    Please let us know if you are planning to bring a spouse or children. We will do our best to make you and your family comfortable. Please remember to bring a portable crib and appropriate linens, for little ones.
    The bathrooms have been renovated. We will have a flipable sign on each door to accommodate male guests.
    The cost for on-campus housing is $100.00 per person. The 5th reunion and the 50th reunion and beyond will enjoy some discounts, which will be applied during the registration process.
    Housing costs are for Friday and Saturday night. Unfortunately, we cannot discount for a one-night stay.
    We cannot accommodate pets on campus, unless you have a service animal. If you have a service animal, please let Alumnae Relations know in advance.
    Dorm and Room Assignments
    When assigning dorms and rooms, we consider the number of alumnae and guests returning for each class, special considerations, the class year, etc. When making housing assignments we will keep classes together. All housing assignments will be done on Tuesday, May 26. All registrations received before May 26 will be placed with their class. Registrations after May 26 will be given campus housing, but we cannot guarantee you will be with your class.
    We do our best to accommodate special requests but cannot guarantee you will be assigned your preferred alumnae roommate, excluding spouses and children.
    Please let us know if you require special assistance with your housing.
    Smoking is NOT permitted anywhere on campus, especially in the dorms! The dorms are equipped with very (very!) sensitive smoke alarms, a change since you were last on campus. A candle, excessive hair spray, and, of course, cigarettes and
    e-cigarettes will set them off.
    Please note: if you smoke in the dorms, the smoke alarms will go off, the fire department will be called, and the dorms will be evacuated regardless of the hour. No smoking please!
