Reunions 2020 has been canceled

Reunions Cancellation FAQs

Will Reunions 2020 be rescheduled?
While not nearly as wonderful as our in-person gathering, virtual events during Reunions weekend (June 12–13, 2020) are being considered. As well, in-person 2020 class celebrations may be rescheduled for Reunions 2021. 

We would love to hear your thoughts!

There are two ways to submit ideas for Reunions.

  • Fill out our survey.

  • Join us on an alumni video chat (via zoom) to share and build on each others ideas. RSVP here.

    • Thursday, April 16, at 5 p.m. PDT
    • Saturday, April 18, at 10 a.m. PDT

Since Reunions 2020 is canceled, can I join Reunions 2021?
Yes! Combining two Reunions into one sounds like a fun challenge to us. And we have 15 months to plan the best party possible. Let's celebrate. Want to help us plan? Email alumni@reed.edu.

Will I receive a full refund?
Yes, we are refunding the full cost of all Reunions and Alumni College registrations. You do not need to take any action to obtain a refund. You can expect to see your refund post back to your account within 5 to 10 days; however, please be aware that it may take up to 30 days. 

Please email alumni programs at alumni@reed.edu with any questions about your refund. 

Can I donate my registration fees instead?
Yes. We invite you to consider turning your registration refund into a gift to the Student Emergency Fund. Please email alumni@reed.edu by April 5 to turn your refund into a gift. Let us know if you’d like your gift to support something other than the Emergency Fund.

Can I apply my registration fees to a future Reunions instead of receiving a refund?
No. We will be issuing refunds to all alumni and will not hold registrations for a future date.

What is happening with Alumni College?
Like Reunions, the on-campus version of Alumni College is canceled. All registrants will be refunded. We are considering options to host Alumni College virtually (Democracy 2020 won’t have quite the same interest in June 2021) and will post updates on the Alumni College page as soon as possible. 

Can local alumni still come to campus to celebrate?
No. Reed will continue to follow Oregon's executive order to limit gatherings. All classes are being taught online and virtually all staff are working remotely on behalf of the college and students. All campus buildings are closed except to a limited number of staff and faculty whose work requires them to work in these spaces. A small number of students and staff have remained on campus, but are adhering to Oregon law to stay home and maintain social distance. We don't know what will happen with these restrictions before or during June, but for now, we're cooking up ideas for some virtual events this year and pushing much of the celebration to Reunions 2021. If we can have a last-minute dance party on the front lawn, then we'll let you know. Stay healthy and stay safe.

Can I still make a gift in honor of my class year?
Yes, you can still make a gift to Reed in honor of your reunion year. You may make a gift of any size online.
