Reunion Weekend

Reunion at Thacher has always meant returning to campus and reuniting with old friends, making new friends, reminiscing, and making new memories. We are thrilled to welcome you home to Thacher for the all-alumni Reunion June 17-19, 2022. This will be the first time we have invited all alumni, who have been graduated for at least five years, back for Reunion Weekend since our centennial celebration in 1989. This will be an exciting opportunity to reconnect with fellow Toads beyond your CdeP, while you catch up with faculty and see the many updates to campus. 
 
Make sure to book your accommodations early as lodging will be limited in Ojai. Check out our additional resources for Reunion planning, including our FAQ page and our What to Bring? checklist!
