Reunion Schedule of Activities

Thursday - "Full Cup" (optional add-on)

Arrive Thursday night to attend a traditional Mory’s Night. We’ve rented out the whole first floor of the club and will serve a three-course dinner including Baker Soup (of course)! Cups and song will abound.
Mory’s Night is an add-on available for $43 per-person in addition to the reunion registration fee.

 

Friday - "Wake Freshmen Wake"

Arrivals, registration, welcome packet and Spizzwink(?) swag available at Rose Alumni Hall throughout most of the day.

 

Friday - "Waly, Waly"

Rehearsals for each Spizzwink era and inter-generational songs led by esteemed Pitchpipes from across the ages.

Friday - "Gimme That Wine"

Welcome dinner and drinks at Bar Pizza. It’s like Pepe’s but without the long walk and the two-hour wait on a Friday night!

 

Friday - "Grace Kelly"

Your reunion registration includes a free ticket to the Spizzwink(?) undergrads annual jam in Battell Chapel. Come see what the kids are doing these days and then depart with your classmates for revelry into the wee hours.

 

Saturday - "Blue Skies"

Choose-your-own-adventure casual social events. Pick one of the events curated by our Social Activities Committee like a tour of the new residential colleges, Owl Shoppe cigar hour, guided Art Gallery Tour, or Counter Weight Brewery Tour [extra fee]; or, organize your own fun with your classmates.

Saturday - "Somewhere"

Learn about ‘wink history in short bursts during our “105 years in 105 seconds” event, and witness the debut of our Virtual Choir video.

Saturday - "Lullaby of Broadway"

The hottest ticket in town: sing with your ‘wink classmates, and with others of all ages during our Alumni Jamboree in Sudler Hall.

Saturday - "Puttin' On the Ritz"

Dine in style at our traditional banquet dinner at the Omni Hotel ballroom. Word has it there may be an open bar at the cocktail hour!

Saturday - "How High The Moon"

Continue the festivities into the wee hours with songs in Dwight Chapel (the Woolsey Rotunda is closed for renovations) and a designated afterglow party.

Sunday - "Dead Puppies"

Rise fresh-faced and fancy-free to join our included continental breakfast, or sleep in and drag yourself to a hangover brunch at a restaurant of your choosing.

An opportunity to reflect and remember those ‘winks who are no longer here at our non-denominational memorial service.
