25th Reunion Calyx

The Calyx, a virtual yearbook compiled of classmate updates and current photos, is considered one of the highlights of the 25th reunion year. It is a great way to begin reconnecting prior to reunion weekend. Please take a couple minutes to share an update, and a few memories with your 1999 classmates in the class digital yearbook! You can add your page just by answering a few questions and uploading photos (if you like). We're looking forward to reading about what all of you have been up to the last 25 years.

Each menu signage lists common allergens and traits so you can find the best options for you; whether you have food allergies, health conditions, religious restrictions, or simply need guidance or assistance with your food selections. We do our best to menu in a way that can fit most diets and common restrictions. We take every precaution to check ingredient information and to ensure that cross-contamination of ingredients does not occur.

Be Prepared

Weather and Attire

We know better than to predict a forecast—things change very quickly here in the Shenandoah Valley, especially in the spring! Check the weather before you leave home. Many of our activities are under tents, but being outside you may want to pack a jacket for the cooler nights and/or rainy weather. Dress for the weekend is casual. For events in University Chapel and Lee House only, gentlemen will probably be most comfortable in a jacket (tie optional) and ladies in a dress, skirt or nice pants. However, University Chapel attire is not necessary for the Generals Assembly on Saturday morning. We encourage dressing in layers and packing a jacket.
