List of 17 frequently asked questions.

  • How do I reserve on-campus housing?

    During registration, you can request an on-campus dorm room or a Family Camping site. Please note that there is a limited number of availability and reservations are on a first come, first served basis. Due to limited availability, we require that you reserve no more than one on-campus reservation per family. The Reunion registration fee must be paid for your on-campus reservation to be processed. You can add your name to the waitlist for additional housing. 
  • How are dorm rooms assigned?

    Generally, each room has one twin bed and floor space for a sleeping pad. Dorms with two beds are limited and are not guaranteed. You can add your name to the waitlist for additional housing or for a dorm room with two beds. 
  • What do I need to bring if I'm staying in a dorm?

    Beds, sheets, a light blanket, towels, and pillows are provided for adults only. Only one blanket per adult bed is supplied. If you tend to be cold when sleeping, we recommend bringing a sleeping bag or extra blanket. Bring everything you need for your kids: sleeping pads and bags, pillows, bath towels, hangers, toiletries etc. 
  • I registered for housing. How do I get my room assignment?

    Dorm room assignments will be included in your check-in packet
  • If I'm staying on-campus, will I be housed with my classmates?

    We will do our best to place each class in the same and nearby dormitories. 
  • Anything I cannot bring to on-campus housing?

    We ask that you leave your furry friend at home. Due to the large number of people on campus during Reunion weekend, it is for the safety of your pet and other guests that no outside animals are allowed on campus. No weapons or personally owned  guns for use at the Trap Range are permitted on campus.
  • I'm booking accommodations off-campus. Is there a list of places in Ojai?

    Yes, you can find a list of local accommodations here. We recommend booking accommodations early due to limited space.
  • Do I need formal attire?

    No, both Friday and Saturday night dinners are casual attire. 
  • What kind of clothes/gear/supplies should I bring for the weekend?

    Bring layers for warm days and cool nights. Recreation gear such as boots, court shoes, tennis racquets, bathing suits, pool towels. Sunscreen, hats, masks, reusable water bottles for refilling stations. Sensible and comfortable shoes are recommended for our hilly terrain. Closed toed shoes are required for those who are horsebacking riding. Children who will be riding horses must bring a riding or bicycle helmet. 
  • Can I bring my dog with me to campus?

    No. Please leave your furry friends at home or at your hotel. Not everyone loves dogs and we will have a large number of people on campus. If you do bring your pet to Ojai, please look into accommodations off campus. There is a lot happening here during Reunion Weekend and even the calmest, most well-behaved dog can become stressed in a strange place with lots of new people, children, noise, horses, etc. Bringing your dog also creates stress for the faculty pets that call Thacher home.
  • Can I bring my own horse?

    No. We do not have the ability to safely welcome your horse onto campus this year.
  • Can I just show up without registering first?

    No—you must register ahead of time. In order to ensure a great weekend for everyone, we need to know how many people will be attending. Please register by May 1 to avoid late registration pricing and so that we can plan for meals, parking, and activities. 
  • Where do I pick-up my check-in packet?

    Check-in packets will be available on Reunion Friday and Saturday on the Pergola. 
  • How do I sign up for special activities, horseback riding, and/or trapshooting?

    Sign-up sheets for special activities, horseback riding, and trapshooting will be made through the Reunion App.
  • What if I need to cancel my registration?

    Please contact us at 805-640-3220 or by May 31 to cancel your registration. We will be happy to refund your fee until May 25. After May 25, there are no refunds.
  • Are my children allowed to attend the dinners?

    Yes. Children 14 years old and younger are allowed to attend the dinners. 
  • Is there childcare available during the weekend?

    We will be offering kids dinner, movie, and games for children ages 5-17 on Saturday evening from 5 -8 p.m. in the commons.
