ReedLink, a password-protected website, is a collection of services that allow alumni to stay in touch with each other and the college. The site lists class notes, volunteer and job opportunities, and, of course, online contact information for Reed alumni. ReedLink also contains class albums for reunion years so you can read about your classmates well before your reunion. Visit the Reedlink website to register for ReedLink. New registrants will be asked to enter their Reed ID, (your six-digit number is on the mailing label of this magazine) and birthdate, and create a password to get started.


The alumni relations office offers short-term medical insurance to new graduates and other alumni who need temporary insurance. Interested alumni may call Meyer and Associates at 800/635-7801.

Camp Westwind 2005

The weekend retreat at Camp Westwind for alumni and their families, sponsored by the Portland alumni chapter, will be October 14–16. Join alumni from a variety of eras and swap Old Reed stories and songs in a beautiful forested setting on the Oregon coast. A limited number of reduced-rate spaces are available for kitchen crew people. Read more about details and registration.

Good spam or bad spam?

Do you ever feel as though you have lost touch with the pulse of the Reed community? Or do you hear about events from a friend and wonder why the email announcement never made it to your inbox? You may not be receiving all our news and invitations if your email program is mistaking them for spam. Here in the alumni office, we have noticed an increase in the number of emails that are returned to us. Since email programs filter out spam in different ways, there is no universal way to keep group email from Reed from being blocked. However, we encourage you to become familiar with your own filter settings, if you haven't already, so that you can perhaps prevent such interceptions. Otherwise, you may never know what you are missing!

Baristas Reunite

Plans are underway for a mini reunion of Paradox managers as part of Reunions 2006, May 30-June 4.

Matt Giraud '85 and Mike Magrath '84 are spearheading this effort and would love to hear from you if you were a Paradox manager during your student days at Reed, or if you have Paradox pictures or memorabilia that you would like to share. Please email Matt or Mike.


If you would like to become more involved in the activities of the alumni association or Reed's offices of development, admission, or career services, we would love to hear from you. If you have any questions or suggestions for the alumni relations office, feel free to call or write us.
