ReedLink grows up
A new, improved version of ReedLink was born this spring, complete with a Doyle Owl graphic. ReedLink v 2.0 was built upon alumni input received over recent years; the primary developer was Shannon Henderson ’96, web database specialist at Reed.
The popular information update application has new features, including the ability to handle foreign addresses and phone numbers, as well as degree updates, preferred year, and additional employer information. As always, you can direct which personal information is available for viewing in the online directory application. The most exciting new application may be the reunions albums, mini life updates that have typically been completed on paper and then compiled into booklets for each class to pick up during reunions weekend. Now that they are online, you can read up on all of your classmates well before the reunion.
Additionally, you may use ReedLink with improved ease to submit and view class notes (which will also run in Reed magazine), learn about volunteer and job opportunities, and set up email forwarding. This service allows you to have an “@reed” email address that will automatically forward email to your preferred account at your current internet service provider. Your friends will always be able to reach you by email at your name@alumni. reed.edu (as long as the destination address is current).
ReedLink is a password-protected website; you will be asked to enter your Reed ID and birthdate when registering for the first time (after which you’ll be able to create your own password). Your ID number can be found on your alumni association membership card or on your address print-out on Reed magazine. To get started, go to the alumni homepage on Reed’s website and then click on ReedLink in the menu to the left—all these new features will be at your fingertips, as will the Doyle Owl!
