About the Reed College Alumni Association

student in library

You are eligible to be a member of the alumni association if you earned at least seven units in a degree-seeking program at Reed. Essentially, Reed's alumni association is the organization of all alumni. Occasionally, the alumni board confers honorary alumni status upon non-alumni to express appreciation for work they have done on behalf of the college.

Upon graduating, all alumni receive a plastic alumni association ID card; this card is required for access to the sports center, library, and other benefits and resources. If you've lost your card or never received one, please send email to about ordering a replacement.

The Foster–Scholz Club is a subset of the alumni association made up of all Portland-area alumni who graduated from the college 40 or more years ago.
