Reunion Row

Reunion Row will be comprised of tents with hundreds of alumni spanning many different affinity groups. Each tent will be spotlighted during the event by the master of ceremonies. Groups will be provided a tent, seating and banner; the rest is up to them! Groups are encouraged to decorate the interior and exterior of their tent to showcase their group and ignite spirit.

Reunion Row will be the primary social area of POMP17 providing alumni a chance to gather with their peers and most importantly, have fun!
