Alumni & Parent Programs

Albany Society

The Albany Society is an honorary organization of Lewis & Clark College alumni from classes that have been graduated 50 or more years. The Society encourages senior alumni to enrich their lives by re-connecting with classmates and with the College through participation in a variety of Alumni Association and Albany Society-sponsored activities. The Society, founded in 1999, works to enhance alumni renaissance by encouraging members to strengthen their bonds between themselves and the College and to extend those strengthened bonds to all senior alumni.

The Albany Society 9th Annual Picnic

This year we will celebrate with a Mexican theme & entertainment, so don your red, white and green gear and head for Palatine Hill! The picnic will take place in the Albany Quadrangle, which many alumni will remember as a hub of campus life while they were students. Learn more and register here.

Albany Society Gardeners

On a rainy day in April 2011 Don Hoyt ’50, Bill Mangels ’55, Jim Stell ’60, Curt Copenhagen ’55, and Jim Cole ’54 volunteered their gardening expertise for a grounds improvement project at the Morgan S. Odell Alumni Gatehouse. The result of their pruning, shearing, and digging can be seen and appreciated at the Gatehouse patio.
