Class Books - FAQs

When do I submit a Class Book page?

Alumni celebrating their 5th-60th reunions (class years ending in 1 or 6) will receive an email April 12 to begin submitting their pages. If you haven't received an email, it's possible the Stanford Alumni Association has an outdated email address or no email address on file for you. Contact us at classbooks@alumni.stanford.edu, let us know if you'd like your email address updated in our records and request a link to start your page.

Alumni celebrating their 5th -60th reunions with class years ending in 0 or 5 can view their reunion class page here to find a link to their read-only Class Book from last year.

 

Is the Class Book in digital format only?

Yes. We’ve had to make operational changes and staffing adjustments in 2020-2021 and offering the Class Book digitally is one of the ways we are navigating the pandemic.

 

What makes the digital Class Book special?

A digital book offers many advantages when compared to printed books:

  • Submit any time until October 2021

  • View pages instantly after you submit

  • Edit your page at any time up until October 2021

  • Display up to 10 large color photos on your page

  • Post Stanford photos and tag classmates

  • Discover links to your classmates’ social media pages

  • Find an email address on a page and reconnect with one simple click

  • Read your Class Book any time and any where you have an internet connection on multiple devices (phones, tables, laptops, desktops, etc…)

  • Search by name, dorm or residence, hobbies or interests, or just a keyword in general

 

Is there a deadline this year?

Alumni celebrating their 5th-60th reunions (class years ending in 1 or 6) are able to submit and edit their Class Book pages through October 2021.

Alumni celebrating their 5th -60th reunions with class years ending in 0 or 5 can view their reunion class page here to find a link to their read-only Class Book from last year.

 

Can I edit or update my page after I submit?

Yes. Alumni celebrating their 5th-60th reunions (class years ending in 1 or 6) can edit their text entries or upload new or different photographs at any time before October 2021.

Alumni celebrating their 5th -60th reunions with class years ending in 0 and 5 who wish to update their classmates are encouraged to:

  • Submit a Class Note

  • Post on their Class Reunion Facebook page

  • Contact friends or classmates using the Stanford Alumni Directory

 

How many photographs can I upload to my page?

You can upload one profile photo and up to nine additional photos (jpg, tiff and png files). The first photo you upload will be your profile photo, and the additional photos will appear in the order you upload them.
NOTE: The first and last name you entered for your page will appear immediately underneath your profile photo. If you enter a caption for the profile photo, it will only show when clicking on the overlaying graphic (the letter 'i') in the upper right of the profile photo.  
Captions entered for the additional photos will display immediately underneath those photos.

 

I'm attempting to tag my friends but their names don't show up. What's wrong?

It's possible the Alumni Association does not have a current email address on record for your friends, which results in their names being 'untaggable.' Encourage your friends to send us an email and ask to be given access to the Class Book.

 

Can I search Class Book pages by keywords?

Once logged in by passcode or email address, you can search your Class Book by name, dorm or residence, hobbies or interests, or just a keyword in general.

 

Can I search Class Books from other years?

No. Each Class Book is accessible only to members of that specific class.

 

Who is Brightcrowd?
