As detailed above

A Day at Vassar is open to the residents of the Hudson Valley over the age of 15, including members of the Vassar College Community.

Due to limited capacity, Registrants are limited to one guest. Registration must be made in advance. No registrations will be taken at the door.

On October 15, Registrants must check in at the Reception Table in the Villard Room in Main Building to receive their packet. This will include a Schedule with the time and location of classes, a Campus Map, and a Meal Ticket required for admission to lunch in Students’ Building.

Registrants must select the class that they and their guests plan to attend during both periods. They will also be required to register for Lunch. Attendees on the same registration will be assigned to the same lectures.

There is a limited capacity for the number that may be accommodated for Lunch.

Preference will be given to those who register for both periods of lectures.

Those who register after this capacity has been reached may enjoy lunch at their own expense at one of the local restaurants on Raymond or Collegeview Avenues.

The event has now sold out and registration is over.

Deadline: Thursday, October 13, 2011
However, as capacity is limited, available spaces may be filled prior to this date.

Admission and lunch are free of charge.
