Elevate Reunion

Saturday, February 17–Monday, February 19, 2018

The Elevate staff is excited to bring to you the first ever Elevate Winter Reunion! Your votes are in, and the dates have been set. The reunion will take place over a 3-day weekend Saturday, February 17–Monday, February 19, 2018.

HOUSING, MEALS & ACTIVITIES
We've got your on-campus housing, meals, and activities covered! On Saturday, spend some relaxed time catching up with friends over pizza ice cream, and board games. On Sunday, head into Boston to church and Boda Borg, a real-life gaming experience where you will tackle a variety of mental and physical challenges in teams. On Monday, get to know Gordon better as a part of All-Access Day and spend time in an Elevate Consulting Workshop to work on your team projects.

During our academic year, our campus is buzzing with Gordon College students. You'll get to see our student life in action in the cafeteria and dorms. On Saturday night, the girls and guys will be sleeping in two separate lounges (imagine a big sleepover!). On Sunday night, you'll get the chance to experience life in a residence hall with one of our Elevate staff or another Gordon College student as your overnight host.

ALL-ACCESS DAY
We know you're making college decisions, so to make your trip even more worthwhile, we're giving you the opportunity to also fit in a college visit! On the last day, we'll take part in Gordon's All-Access Day along with other prospective students get the inside scoop on life at Gordon and take a deeper look at how you can thrive here.

PARENTS
Parents are welcome to accompany their student! If you haven't seen Gordon College for yourself yet, join your student for All-Access Day at Gordon on the last day of the reunion, Monday, February 19, 2018. While your student is busy reuniting with their Elevate friends on Saturday and Sunday, take some time to experience winter around our beautiful North Shore with our local area guide. On-campus housing is only available for Elevate students, however, there are many nearby hotels with a discounted Gordon rate.

FLYING & DRIVING IN
If you are flying in and out of Boston Logan, you remember the drill! We’ll pick you up and drop you off at the airport. If you are driving to and from Gordon College, we'll send you instructions for directions and parking. Fly into Boston Logan Airport: book your flight to arrive between 2 and 5 p.m. or Drive to Gordon College: get picked up between 3 and 5 p.m.

Head home, but don’t be a stranger! We’ll bring you back to the airport and send you on your way with lots of love from New England and your Elevate alumni. Fly out of Boston Logan Airport: book your flight 7 p.m. onwards or Drive from Gordon College: get picked up between 4 p.m. and 6 p.m.
