Registration Fee

The nonrefundable $10 registration fee helps to cover the hidden costs of Homecoming 2019, including your name badge/event tickets, furniture rental, staffing, postage, and printing. Over 50 Valparaiso University staff make every effort to make sure your weekend runs as smoothly as possible. The University greatly subsidizes Homecoming & Reunion Weekend in an attempt to make it affordable for all guests. Guests 12 & under will not incur a registration fee.

Will I be able to register on site?

Guests who register on site will incur an additional charge of $5 per person for each event.

We strongly encourage you to register for Homecoming 2019 before Sept. 18, 2019. In an effort to be good stewards of our resources, all events with food will have a very limited overage so that we can provide accurate numbers to our catering staff and eliminate food waste. This includes reunion dinners.
