The reason Classmates cannot join is because you have not added any Classmate names yet. I could go on and on about this and why it's imperative that you do this in advance, but all of that is well documented in the new site setup wizard as well as in our FAQs.
Bottom line, you need to go in and add your Classmates. You can do this 1 of 2 ways:
1) Click on Manage Classmates, and then press the Add/Edit Classmates button
2) Click on Manage Classmates, and then click Upload Classmates to use our Classmate Excel sheet import function.
I recommend #2, especially for an alumni site like yours. Yes, entering your Classmates' names is a lot of work -- especially on a multi year site like yours. The payoff will be that you'll get a site that really works though. So grin and bear it as you add those names, because your initial setup work doing this will swing your site into action like nothing else can.
