Getting Funky

Get a groove on for Saturday night, June 15, with Ural Thomas, the godfather of Portland’s funk scene, and Tezeta Band, Portland’s premier Ethiopian-style rock group. In a blast from the past, Tezeta Band is composed of members of the Five Fingers of Funk, the hip-hop funk fusion band that rocked Portland in the 1990s. Read more about our Saturday-night stage.

Reunions Paideia

This is a small pilot program organized by Rory Bowman ’90 to explore the idea of alumni and others offering short-form classes in the spaces between the two “traditional” Alumni College programs, that is June 12-15. For this year, suggested topics include healing from Reed, career planning, and mid-life transition, but more topics are welcome. Attendance is free and does not require registering in advance. Learn more.

Second Acts

Don Asher ’83, author and career expert, presents a session on what happens when hard-driving careerists hang up their hats. He’ll discuss what kinds of “pitfalls, warnings, hopes, and dreams” befall the Type A personality in retirement on Saturday, June 15, at 1 p.m.

Also, Don will be holding a walk-up advice booth à la Lucy (from Peanuts) on Saturday from 2:30 to 3:30 p.m. Got a nickel? Want some quick career or grad-school advice?

Join Annette Gardner ’83 to explore the options for act two of your career. Taking a lead from Pele, the goddess of creative power, passion, and purpose, you’re invited to consider the possibilities on Friday, June 14, at 2:15 p.m.

See these and other schedule highlights and register online.
