QUESTIONS?

Are all classes invited to Homecoming Weekend?
Special class reunions will be held for all classes ending in a 4 or 9, but all alumni are invited to attend Homecoming Weekend events and activities!

We are pleased to introduce the inaugural Alumni and Students of Color Reunion during Homecoming Weekend. This event marks a new chapter in the college’s history as the first official gathering of CC Alumni and Students of Color on campus. The college, in partnership with the newly established Colorado College Alumni & Students of Color Association (CCASCA), is planning a series of events to reconnect and recognize the campus’ renewed progression towards diversity and inclusion.

I plan to attend Homecoming Weekend. Now what?
Let the Alumni Office know so we can add you to the “Hopes to Attend Homecoming” list on your class reunion web page, homecoming@coloradocollege.edu or (800) 852-6519.

You will save time and money if you register in advance of your arrival on campus. An early bird registration fee of $25 per household is available from Aug. 1-Oct. 5, 2014. This fee is waived only for Young Alumni members from the Classes of 2009-2014 who register by Oct. 5.

Will onsite registration be available?
After Oct. 5, a registration fee of $50 per household will apply and there will be a $10 additional fee per person, per event. We do our best to accommodate walk-ins, but cannot guarantee a seat or a meal unless you have registered by Oct. 5, 2014.

Why is there a registration fee?
More than 100 Colorado College staff make every effort for all events to be as well planned as possible. To that end, it helps us immensely when you make a good faith effort to register and pay the requested fees.

I want to attend athletic events, do I need to purchase tickets?
Alumni may attend on-campus athletic events for free with their official Homecoming Weekend name tag. If you would like to attend the hockey game, you have a few options. Alumni who would like to sit with reunioning classmates, may purchase tickets through Homecoming registration for general admission seating in the alumni reunion section. Tickets cost $12 per person for seating in sections 202 and 203, right behind the student section. Seating is limited and alumni reunion section tickets must be purchased by Oct. 5, 2014. Tickets purchased in the alumni reunion section by Oct. 5, 2014, will be available for pick up at Registration Central in the Worner Campus Center.  If you would prefer to sit in another section, or if you miss the Oct. 5 deadline to purchase tickets in the alumni reunion section, single game reserved seating tickets go on sale Sept. 21, 2014, and can be purchased directly from the World Arena by calling (719) 576-2626, (866) 464-2626, or www.cctigers.com. Parking at the World Arena is $5. All hockey tickets are non-refundable.

Can I bring my children to Homecoming Weekend?
Children age 12 and younger eat for free at all on-campus events. If attending the hockey game, children age 2 and older must have a hockey ticket. Event Sitters by Charity offers safe and professional childcare during Homecoming Weekend on Friday, Oct. 10, from 6 p.m.-midnight and Saturday, Oct. 11 from 6 p.m.-midnight in the Worner Campus Center. Dinner is included. Pre-registration is required for all children and must be completed by Oct. 5, 2014.

Do I get a bookstore discount?
The Colorado College Bookstore offers discounts on CC logo merchandise. Alumni who are registered and wear an official Homecoming Weekend name tag will receive a discount equal to the number of years since graduation up to 50 years. For example, members of the Class of 1994 would receive a 20 percent discount.
