  • When can I submit my Reunion Class Book page?

    All Class Books are now open for Reunion 2024. You can Create and Edit your page at any time.

  • How do I edit my page after submitting it?

    Login to your Class Book and select "My Page" in the upper right corner. You can then edit your profile page. If you're having trouble, you can view a tutorial on editing your page here . 

  • When is the Reunion Class Book page deadline?

    Reunion Class Books will be closed for edits following Reunion 2024. We recommend creating your profile as soon as possible to begin connecting with your classmates. Class Books will remain viewable after reunion, but you will no longer be able to edit or create a page in the book.

  • Can I submit my page via postal mail or email?

    Pages are only submitted electronically, via the BrightCrowd website, through your class book link.

  • How many photographs can I upload to my page?

    You can upload one profile photo and up to 10 additional photos (jpg, tiff and png files).

    Go to "My Page" and edit your page, to add additional photos.

    NOTE: The first and last name you entered for your page will appear immediately underneath your profile photo. If you enter a caption for the profile photo, it will only show when clicking on the overlaying graphic (the letter 'i') in the upper right of the profile photo. Captions entered for the additional photos will display immediately underneath those photos.

  • Can I tag friends in photos or memories?

    If a classmate has added a page to the class book, then you will be able to tag them in photos and/or memories. Classmates will receive an email update if they have been tagged in a photo or memory.

    To Tag a friend, enter the @ symbol, then begin typing their name.

  • If we are married, can we submit a single Reunion Class Book page?

    Yes. When you are asked for your first name and last name, there is also an entry to add your spouse/partner's name.

  • How do I see where my classmates are living? Is there a map in the Class Book?

    Yes, there is a map! Login to your Class Book, scroll past the directory photos and select the "Browse by Location" button to see the interactive map. Hover your cursor over each "bubble" to see which classmates are living in that city. 

    NOTE: To appear on the interactive map, you MUST enter your city into the "Where are you living?" question when creating your profile page. Start typing your city name, then select from the choices that auto-populate. 

  • I need additional assistance with my Reunion Class Book. Is there someone I can contact?

    The Reunion Office would be happy to assist! Visit the Contact Us page.

  • Can couples use the same email?

    No, an email can only be used by one person to login. If a couple wants to have separate class book pages, they must use two different emails.

  • Why isn't my picture uploading?

    Please make sure you are not trying to upload a "live" photo from your phone. Best practice is to download the picture from your phone to your computer first, and make sure it is in a regular .jpg format to be uploaded.
