Enjoy Summer in Portland 

Alumni Weekend is just around the corner, and you won’t want to miss Lewis & Clark’s biggest alumni event of the year! Hundreds of your classmates are already registered, and it’s not too late to join them. Even if you’re not celebrating a reunion, come to campus for the events open to all classes, including Alumni College, the Northwest Salmon Bake and BBQ, live bands, karaoke, tours, and more. To register—and to view the list of alumni who have already signed up—visit the website below.

Class Reunions

Reconnect with classmates from these graduation years: 1954, 1959, 1964, 1969, 1974, 1979, 1984, 1989, 1994, 2004, and 2009. If you graduated the year before or after, you’re invited to join in the class events as well.

Overseas and Off-Campus Program Reunions

Relive your adventures with trip mates and program leaders. More than 15 reunions are planned from years around the milestone reunions being celebrated. See the complete list at the website below.

Special Reunions

Several special reunions will be held during Alumni Weekend: a theatre reunion for graduates from the mid-’60s to mid-’80s, featuring Professor Emeritus of Theatre Edgar Reynolds; a retirement brunch for longtime staff member and former Dean of Students Michael Ford; an Outdoor School Reunion featuring adjunct instructor Mary Lou Hunter B.S. ’59; and a reception for international and third-culture kids (TCK) alumni.

Albany Society Bash

All alumni are invited to an event honoring the classes of 1954 and 1959, and featuring the induction of the class of 1964 to the Albany Society, an honorary organization of Lewis & Clark alumni who graduated 50 or more years ago.
