Frequently Asked Questions

Chatham Alumni Weekend

+ Where are the Alumni Weekend events located?

All venues will be listed on the Alumni Weekend Schedule of Events. Also, when you arrive on campus and register in the lobby of Mellon Center, a pocket program will be provided to you that will include final locations for all events.

+ Where is my Class Party?

Class Party details vary by class. For more information or to volunteer to plan your Class Party, call (412) 365-1517.

+ What do I wear for the weekend?

Your favorite purple clothes! If you need some new Chatham gear, The Campus Bookstore will be open and you’ll receive a discount for shopping over Alumni Weekend. We encourage you to wear comfortable shoes, suitable for walking around campus, and to dress in layers as you will be both in and out of doors throughout the weekend.

+ What if I need assistance walking?

Once you arrive on Chatham’s Campus, golf carts will be available to transport guests to campus buildings and parking lots. Please feel free to flag one down or wait at one of the designated pick-up stops.

There are marked spaces reserved for those with government-issued handicap tags throughout campus. We are happy to help you with any mobility needs. Please contact the Office of Alumni Relations at alumni@chatham.edu or 412-365-1517 to connect with a staff member.

+ What is a Reunion Class Gift?

Your Reunion Class Gift is a gift made to Chatham in honor and celebration of your reunion year. Class gifts are an essential source of support for our Annual Fund each year, and gifts of all sizes make a difference in the lives of our students!

To make your gift, access our secure online giving page here. Gifts made between January 1, 2018 - June 30, 2019 will be counted towards Reunion Class Gift totals.

+ Can I designate my gift, and if so, will it be counted towards my reunion gift?

Yes, you can designate your reunion gift to the fund of your choice. While we always encourage alumni to make unrestricted gifts in support of the University's area of greatest need and undergraduate scholarships, a gift to any Chatham program or center will count towards Reunion Class Gift totals. If you have questions about specific designations, please contact the Office of Annual Giving at AnnualFund@Chatham.edu or (412) 365-1262.
