Reunions 2001:
a jubilant time

Many alumni came to college to play and learn this year, which made reunions constantly fun and surprising, given the nature of Reedies. Alumni College was a great success, with professors Evgenii Bershtein, Ülker Gökberk, Laura Hendrickson, and David Schiff leading discussions on decadence in opera, film, painting, and literature at the turn of the last century.

Reunions 2Events open to all attendees included a bus tour of Columbia Gorge; walking tours of downtown Portland, the campus, the Douglas F. Cooley Art Gallery, and the rare book collection in the library; faculty lectures by professors David Griffiths, Albyn Jones, Roger Porter, and Janis Shampay; the Reed authors’ reception at the bookstore; and the creative Midnight Theatre in chapel, where talent and spontaneity were mixed to perfection.
Reunions 3Class events included a tour of Clear Creek Distillery in northwest Portland, “pitch and putt” at Edgefield Golf Course, a tour of Eric Lemelson’s winery in Newberg, and two film screenings.

Special activities for children included a scavenger hunt, a trip to the Crystal Springs Rhododendron Garden, and an outdoor biology laboratory designed by students in the Reed biology outreach program.
Reunions 5 Events culminated with the all-class parade marching from the old library steps to the barbecue in the Gray Center quad. Dancing, café bistro, and music and dancing in the student union concluded a lively and eventful evening. Alumni, launching toward parts known on Sunday, marked their charts for converging again in June 2002. End of Article
