Reunions Update

It’s not too late to make it to Reunions 2006!

  • Mark your calendar: May 30–June 4.
  • Go to the Reunions pages for an up-to-date schedule, including information about class dinners.
  • Email or call alumni relations at 503/777-7589, to get information about Reunions 2006.

This year, Reunions 2006 highlights the class years ending in 1 and 6: ’36, ’41, ’46, ’51, ’56, ’61, ’66, ’71, ’76, ’81, ’86, ’91, ’96, and ’01. Paradox managers and premeteorology alumni also are having special gatherings. But even if this is not your reunion year, we hope that you will consider returning to campus when you can have the run of the place—to chat with President Colin Diver, frolic in the sun, enjoy food and beverages outdoors, and catch up with fellow Reedies of all vintages.
