Some classes can expect a large number of children to be a part of their Reunion experience. For those classes – frequently the 15th, 20th and 25th – it is often helpful to have a committee to plan for family-friendly events. Past schedules are available from your class liaison. The College also offers a Children’s Reunion Evening Program for children ages 4-12.

The College cannot provide care for children younger than 4 years old or provide private babysitters. If a classmate lives in the Amherst area, they may have suggestions about local sitters. You can also use a source such as or to find local sitters with references. (Please note: These sites are private for-profit businesses and are in no way affiliated with Amherst College.).

Note: This committee is not required, but may be helpful to assure that your classmates and their families enjoy Reunion.
