News & Events
From the early ’60s through the early ’90s, Reedies spent a weekend in the fall enjoying surf, sand, the talent show, green eggs and ham, and the unique setting that is Camp Westwind on the Oregon coast. This event is sponsored by the Portland alumni chapter, but it is open to Reedies from all over. Join in the new, expanded tradition October 11-13! Learn more and register.
The book group meets the second Tuesday of every month in psychology 108, 7-8:30 p.m.
August: The Future of Life, by E.O. Wilson
September: The Sense of an Ending, by Julian Barnes
October: Beyond the Hundredth Meridian, by Wallace Stegner
November: Midnight's Children, by Salman Rushdie (or another book by Rushdie if that one is not available)

Thirsty Third Thursday
Meet other alumni, sample a few brews, and enjoy lively conversation on the third Thursday of every month. Look for the pink table-top sign and the stuffed griffin at a pub/bar/restaurant near you.

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.
The Portland chapter has recently set up an email listserve to arrange get-togethers with fellow Reedies on short notice. If you want to invite Reedies to join you for a concert, movie, drink, dinner or a hike, please send an email to the list. This is an opt-in list, which means the only people who will see the announcements will be people who have subscribed to the web page. There is an option to get the messages combined in one message daily or weekly; please subscribe at https://www.lists.reed.edu/mailman/listinfo/alumni-pdx-network
If you have an idea for an event please contact the chapter. We'd love to hear your ideas.
