College offers short-term medical insurance to alumni
Reed continues to offer temporary major medical insurance to alumni through Meyer and Associates. The program is designed primarily to prevent the gap in insurance coverage that often occurs between a student’s graduation and employment or graduate school. Short-term major medical insurance is also available to alumni and their families who may experience a temporary lack of coverage at other times in their lives. This service is available to residents of all states except Alabama, Alaska, Hawaii, Kentucky, and New York.
More information will be mailed directly to the class of 1999. Other interested alumni may call Meyer and Associates at 800/635-7801.
Calling alumni historians
The Reed Alumni Association is currently designing a ten-year oral history project of the college for the sake of institutional memory. Volunteers in alumni chapter areas with a professional background in historical research, including oral and public history, are being sought to help with the project. Interested alumni should call Kristin Converse at 503/777-7789, or send email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
