Reunions

Virtual Reunions 2021

June 4–13

June traditions persist! Not the same as it ever was, but we’re excited to offer 50+ opportunities to reconnect with fellow Reedies and rediscover all that you love about Reed. Mark your calendars and join us for two weeks of events this June! 

There will be quinquennial reunion class gatherings, faculty lectures, affinity group meet-ups, virtual campus tours, “chance encounters,” and a full Alumni College focused on the topic of climate change. Expect to see events you know and love, as well as lots of creative additions as the alumni community makes the best of this year’s virtual format to connect in new ways.

New this year: We have an online event platform that will host all of our Reunions and Alumni College programming as well as tools for connecting with alumni attendees all in the same place. The platform will include the full agenda, links to join live events, alumni attendee profiles, and more. There is also an app with all of the same features, should you want to join from your phone or tablet. As soon as you register for Reunions or Alumni College, you’ll get an invite to the Reunions 2021 platform. More on that below.
