News and Events


Reunions '14: Reedfayre will be June 4-8. Join the audience of alumni as the curtain goes up on campus in its finest seasonal form: summer! We're putting all of the acts together at a fayre for all Reedies, no matter your affinity year. Find out more or register online today!


Our travel-study program exists to provide opportunities for alumni, parents, and friends of the college to explore ideas via small-group  travel to domestic and international destinations and to encounter people, places, and issues that serve as an extension of the Reed curriculum.  The overall program strives to achieve a balance in the range of sponsored experiences such that people feel that there is always a program that is accessible to them and aims to bring members of the Reed community together in a way that also supports the mission of the college.

Calligraphy Scriptorium

Scriptorium is organized by Gregory MacNaughton ’89, education outreach and calligraphy-initiative coordinator of the Douglas F. Cooley Memorial Art Gallery.
