- I have not been on campus in a while. What should I expect this weekend?
- How can I reconnect with classmates ahead of reunion?
- Does the cost to attend reunion count as a reunion gift?
- Where can I stay?
Your reunion chairs are a great place to start. Many classes have set up Facebook pages, so you may want to look there. Also, the alumnae portal is available. Visit and join alumnae-westoverschool.org to search for classmates in the online directory.
We recommend the Southbury Plaza (formerly Crowne Plaza). A number of rooms have been reserved for reunion weekend. For reservations, call 203-598-7600 and reference Westover School for a discounted rate.

2016 Reunion Weekend Recap
May 13-15, classes ending in 1 and 6 celebrated their milestone reunions.
Reunion 2016 was a wonderful weekend! It was such a pleasure to have so many alumnae back on campus, though we certainly missed those who could not attend. Westover's campus was filled with more than 250 alumnae and families. From Friday evening's Welcome Reception through Sunday's Farewell Brunch, a wonderful time was had.
