Select Find a School to browse schools at, or use the site's search tool. Browse by region by using the directories at the bottom of the main page. In addition to reunion listings, the site offers additional information about the event, including travel and accommodation information as well as available discounts. Create a profile in order to send messages to former classmates, email event information and link your reunion page to Facebook, Twitter and other social media sites.

To register at the site, enter your graduation year, name and email address. The site offers additional features for Classmates+ members for a recurring fee.

Any high school or college should have an alumni association. If there is not a direct link on the school's website, contact the school for information by phone or email. The alumni association usually has a mailing list or newsletter for which former students can sign up, which contains information about any planned class reunions. Alumni sometimes form groups on social networking sites such as Facebook to keep in touch, and reunion information is often available within these forums.

Websites that host alumni groups commonly have an easy-to-use searchable database to find the interested individual's school and graduating class. Not all schools have a presence on these websites.

The best time to search for news of a class reunion is around the five- to 10-year anniversaries in the years following graduation, around the date of the commencement ceremony. Some alumni groups begin planning these reunions years beforehand, due to the difficulty of finding past classmates and making arrangements.
