Reunion FAQ Here are some frequently asked reunion questions. Don’t hesitate to email the Office of Alumni Engagement or call (617) 627-3532 if you need additional information.
Q: Are Reunions going to be held in person in 2022?
A: We are planning to welcome alumni back to campus for in-person reunions in 2022. We are still closely monitoring the COVID-19 pandemic and will make sure all planning ensures the health and safety of all. We will be posting regular updates to this page with everything you need to know about your reunion. In addition to our regular reunion mailings, the website and e-mail will be our primary modes of communication with classes in the coming year.
Q: When is my Reunion?
A: This year we will have three reunion weekends.

Q: Can I come back to Reunion Weekend 2022 if I am not from a class ending in a 2 or 7?
A: Yes, all alumni are always welcome to attend general events during Reunion Weekend. Should we be able to gather on campus for Reunion Weekend 2022, we will offer the opportunity for alumni to register for Reunion Weekend events as Non-Reunion Year attendees. However, on-campus housing for Non-Reunion Year alumni cannot be guaranteed.
Q: What options are going to be in place for those who wish to celebrate Shavuot during reunions?
A: We recognize some reunion events and activities in 2022 conflict with Shavuot. For those individuals who are impacted by this conflict and wish to attend their reunion, we will make arrangements for appropriate meals, identify synagogues within walking distance, and will arrange appropriate accommodations on campus. Additional details will be shared in February 2022.
Q: When does registration open?
A: We plan to open registrations for the three reunion weekend in early February. Please keep an eye open on your email as we get closer for more information.
Q: I want to make sure there are a lot of people from my class. How do I do that?
We want that too! One great way to help is by becoming a Reunion Volunteer. Each class has a group of volunteers that help encourage attendance for Reunion. They send e-mails, make calls, and reach out to friends via social media to help guarantee a good class turn out. If you're not sure you want to be a volunteer, you can still encourage friends by reaching out to your personal networks and sharing your Reunion enthusiasm on Facebook. The most important part of encouraging attendance is leading by example. If you register for Reunion, your friends are more likely to register for Reunion! To learn more about volunteering please email Alice.Shah@tufts.edu.
Q: What's the best way to get to campus from the airport, train station, bus station, etc.?
A: Driving Directions
Visit this link and type in your start address for step-by-step directions to our campus. Please read the parking directions below.
For Your GPS:
419 Boston Ave.
Medford, MA 02155
If you are coming by subway, or “T,” take the Red Line to the Davis Square Station. Exit the Davis Square Station on the College Avenue side. You may take the #94 or #96 bus (which both leave from the Davis Square T entrance directly across from the Tedeschi convenience store, NOT the entrance next to the Somerville Theatre) or walk 15 minutes along College Avenue to the Tufts campus.
- If you board the bus, you will get off at the stop titled "Boston Avenue at Tufts Garage." The bus stop is across the street from a large, seven-story parking garage. Enter the garage at the ground level and walk toward the elevators, directly across from the Tufts University Police Department headquarters. Take the elevator to the 7th floor.
- If you walk, turn right out of the subway station and follow College Avenue to the Powderhouse Square traffic circle. Cross Powderhouse Circle to continue on College Avenue. As you continue on College Avenue, the Tufts Campus will be on your left. Continue on College Avenue, passing Lower Campus Road, Talbot Avenue, and Professors Row (all of which will be on your left), until you reach the Memorial Steps (also on your left). Walk up the steps and bear right. Turn right after you pass East Hall and walk across the footbridge into Dowling Hall. The reception desk is straight ahead.

This means that there will only be one or two single beds in each room. Basic linens, a light blanket, a pillow, and a towel are provided, but please bring whatever else would make you feel more at home, such as an extra blanket, hair dryer, mirror, alarm clock, your favorite pillow, extra clothes hangers, reading light, radio, extra towel, or fan.
