The biology department reunion is happening today! Alumni will give talks throughout the day; look for a listing at Reedfayre Central in Kaul and on the door of psych 105.

Also, there will be a lunch + open house and a dessert gathering this evening. Check in at Kaul to sign up.

Send photos! Current or past, of the retirees or of you, whether you can attend or not, to Suzy Renn, associate professor of biology.

David Byrne wrote this cool op-ed on biking; he won't be headlining, but you can dance to a giant projection of "Stop Making Sense" tonight at 11:45 p.m. in the SU.

Bikes can transform our world and make it better. New Yorkers are about to see how.

You are cordially invited to Centennial Fanfayre at 5 p.m. today!

Gather on the north lawn of Eliot (the site of the first commencements at Reed) to unveil the centennial oral history, "Comrades of the Quest," by John Sheehy '82 as well as to honor retiring librarian Vickie Hanawalt and president Colin Diver along with retiring professors Steve Arch and Steve Black.

Afterwards, enjoy the president’s reception in the quad at 6 p.m. and other evening fun, including dinner, Laugh Track, and Reedie bands.

good times with the great griffin float (in process)!

Professor Emeritus Nicholas Wheeler '55 built a harpsichord over many years; today Bonnie Garrett, honorary alumna, will perform a recital of French and German music from the 18th century at 5 p.m. in the gallery.

Chris Lydgate '90 sez: "Hey, trivia fans--Quizmaster Marty Smith '88 will host a trivia session Thursday night at Reunions. Come on down and test your mastery of obscure 80s synthpop..."

something esoteric for everyone!

Stuart Margolis '93 plans to rawk on Friday night! #Reedfayre2012


Seriously looking forward to playing music at Reed College this Friday night. For the vast hordes of fans who are not alumni of this institution, I apologize. ... It is a private event.
It is also our last show with the illustrious Valley Boy, Dan David. Dan has been a huge asset and influence on the Hollowdog sound for years. His presence will be greatly missed be all. We wish he and Vicky all the best in their move to Ittoqqortoormiit.

Yes, New York Times, Portland prides itself on "all things independent and artisan," but we knew that before a certain IFC series that starts with a "P" catapulted our fair city into the national spotlight. Even if you eschew the fawning praise of this "36 Hours in Portland" feature, please consider...
