The Gray Fund has been a Reed tradition since 1992. Established by generous benefactor Betty Gray, the fund's purpose is, in her words,
"to assure that Reed College will have stimulating cultural, social, and recreational programs of excellent quality on a regular and planned basis which will interest students, faculty, and staff and which will involve these three groups together in activities outside the classroom which complement the college's academic program."
Many Gray Fund activities are outdoors focused, providing yet another way for you to get off campus and explore for free. Options range from an afternoon hike to a weeklong camping trip in the desert. Submit trip ideas to the Gray Fund recreation intern Athen di Properzio, and learn more about the program at the Gray Fund website.
