Online Alumni Directory

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. New registrants will be asked to enter their Reed ID (your six-digit number is on the mailing label of the Reed magazine), and birthdate, and to create a password to get started.
