What to Wear and Things to Bring
Cocktail (festive) attire is appropriate for the special dinners honoring the Class of 1973 and post-fiftieth classes on Friday evening, as well as for the Celebration Dinner and Dance Saturday night. Casual attire is appropriate for all other meals and events. The weather can be fickle in June, so it is better to bring a sweater and raincoat, although we usually have warm, sunny days. Bring your athletic equipment, your camera, your bathing suit and towel, and your walking shoes!
Child Care Program
Children’s packages include housing, meals and the children’s program Saturday evening only. Parental supervision is required at all times for all activities other than the children’s program. The children’s program will include age-appropriate activities and supervision by a trained and certified child care worker with additional student assistants.
Special Information You Provide
We ask that you provide any special conditions, needs, food preferences, allergies, as well as children’s ages for program planning purposes and for your safety and comfort while on campus.
Reunion classes being celebrated (3s and 8s in 2023) are given campus lodging preference if bookings are completed by April 20, 2023.
