Why should I attend Smith Reunions?
Smith Reunions is a celebration of Maryland Smith alumni and their achievements. It’s a great opportunity to not only catch up with your classmates but an opportunity to make new connections to fellow Smith alumni and a chance to learn more from the top faculty at Maryland Smith.

What is the dress code for each event during Smith Reunions?
Casual for morning programming at Van Munching Hall and Maryland Day. Smart casual attire for the activities at The Hotel at the University of Maryland.

Smart casual is a dress code that is typically comprised of well-fitting, neat and appropriate pieces that are slightly less formal than a business casual or business professional dress code.  However, smart casual is much more elevated and put together than dressing for off-hours and avoids items that are too casual or loose-fitting.

Do I have to attend all of the Smith Reunions events?
While we’d love to have you attend all the Smith Reunion events, you are free to pick which specific components of the day you would like to attend. Please register for all you plan to attend so we can have an accurate count.

Where should I stay?
You can get a discounted rate at The Hotel at The University of Maryland by using this link to book your stay.

What if I have a food allergy or disability accommodation request?
Please email the Office of Alumni Relations at alumni@rhsmith.umd.edu and we will do our best to accommodate requests made at least two weeks prior to Smith Reunions.

Why should I give to the Smith Reunions Giving Campaign?
Giving back is good business and we invite our alumni to commemorate their reunion by making a charitable donation to Maryland Smith. By giving back to business education at Maryland Smith, you are supporting the future graduates who will follow in your footsteps. We cannot continue to improve, grow, and rise in the rankings without help from our alumni community and we hope you answer the call!

How can I make a contribution to the Smith Reunions Giving Campaign?
Make a gift in celebration of your reunion milestone. See the Reunion Giving section below.

Where can I get University of Maryland apparel while I’m in town?
While you’re on campus, stock up on your University of Maryland swag! The University Bookstore will be open at the following times: Friday 9 a.m.–5 p.m. | Saturday 11 a.m.–4 p.m. | Sunday 11 a.m.–4 p.m.

How can I volunteer for Smith Reunions?

Who is invited to Smith Reunions?

Can my children attend the Smith Reunion events?

The faculty sessions, dean’s remarks and Saturday night reception are more appropriate for a mature audience. Guests should be 21 and older. Childcare will not be provided.
