  • Can I participate in this website and/or attend the reunion if I graduated in another year?
    • Yes! You can establish a "Guest Account" if you graduated from UDHS in any class other than 1970 or were one of our teachers. Click on the Contact Us link  in the left column and ask us to set up a guest profile for you.
    • Once your "Guest Account" has been established, you will have access to virtually the entire website and will receive all notifications regarding the upcoming reunion, giving you the option of attending. Please encourage other friends from UDHS to attend as well—regardless of their graduation year.
    • Even if you won't be attending the reunion, please update your profile and join the site. It’s a great way to reconnect with your fellow classmates!

    • The only charge you will ever incur is if you make a donation or purchase something related to the reunion.
  • Who has access to my Classmate Profile and personal contact information?
    • You can choose whether your Classmate Profile is publicly viewable on the website (e.g., by other classes, friends, and the general public) or is restricted to registered classmates only. If you restrict access, search engines and the general public will be blocked from accessing your Classmate Profile page. You can also choose to block your mailing address and phone number; in that case, only the city and state where you live will be listed. Click on the Edit Profile link in the Member Functions menu in the left-hand column, then scroll down to the bottom of the page to make your choice.
    • Remember that certain sections of this website are always restricted unless you are logged in. If you send us a news update for the Message Forum for example, it will only be viewable by classmates who are logged in.
  • Can I be notified if other Classmates update their Classmate Profiles?
    • YES! Click on Classmate Profiles, then click on the name of the classmate you would like to keep track of. Once s/he has registered, her/his profile will be displayed.

You will be notified by e-mail whenever that profile is updated—it's that easy!
  • Do members of the public or other classmates have access to my e-mail address?

You can decide to whom you want to provide your own e-mail address. To check whether you've received any new messages, click on the Check Messages link under the Member Functions menu in the left-hand column.
  • How will I receive e-mails from the website?
    • E-mails from classmates will be sent to you from the e-mail address (that's a .net, not a .com). , so please add that e-mail address to your e-mail Address Book or your spam filter's 'this is not spam' list (terminology differs from one email provider to another). Your classmate's personal e-mail address will be included in the message. You can send e-mails to our website administrator by clicking on the Contact Us link in the left column.
  • What are examples of the e-mails that I might receive?
    • You will be e-mailed information about new website features, details about upcoming events, general announcements about classmates, occasional surveys, and other important news. In addition, a reminder e-mail will be sent to you on New Year's Day suggesting that the start of the new year is a good time to update your Classmate Profile.
