Alumni Weekend is one of the Alumni Association's signature annual events. It is a special time for alumni and friends to return to Mason to reminisce, reconnect, and have fun! The Association hosts events, in addition to events hosted by academic units and affinity chapters.

No (mostly). Generally, we accept registration for most events up to the event time itself (on-site registration). However, select events offer an early-bird discount that is noted in the activity's information on the Alumni Weekend main page. Please contact us directly if you have a question about a specific event's registration deadline.

Yes. The bookstore (located in the Johnson Center) will be open on Friday, 8 a.m. - 5 p.m.; Saturday, 10 a.m. - 5 p.m.; and Sunday, 10 a.m. - 3 p.m.
Alumni always get a 10% discount on Mason paraphernalia in the bookstore (basically, most items in the bookstore except textbooks). We will have Alumni Association members cards available at activities hosted by the Alumni Association; simply present that card at check-out to receive your discount any time!
You are welcome to register your children and spouses for any Alumni Weekend event! Please note, however, that alcohol will be served at some events. No events are being held outside this year, so temperature will not be an issue!
While some events are free to attend, others require an entrance fee or require you to pay a third party vendor directly. Prices for each activity are noted on the Alumni Weekend main page at
This year, Fall for the Book and Admissions Fall Premiere are happening at the same time as Alumni Weekend. Select events are open to all attendees from these three major events.
