Alumni & Parent Programs

Welcome, Class of 1989!

Join us for our 30th Class Reunion this June to celebrate the Class of ’89 in High Def!

It was a time when we defined an era of high, Lived Out Loud with our Primal Scream during finals week; and learned Critical Inquiry before it was cool.

Pack your sunglasses, grab your annual and reading glasses, and see you in June!

Alumni Weekend: June 20-24, 2019

Check out our photos from Alumni Weekend 2018 when our friends from the class of 1988 celebrated their 30th reunion!

WHO IS WORKING ON THE REUNION?

For a list of your class reunion volunteers, and to join in on the fun, visit the Alumni Weekend volunteer page.  

WHERE CAN I FIND CLASSMATES?

Start with the Alumni Directory to connect and reconnect with classmates. Or, let your staff reunion coordinator know you’d like a list so you can contact friends to encourage them to attend the reunion.  

WE NEED YOUR HELP!

Lewis & Clark attempts to remain in contact with all alumni but unfortunately we have lost contact with some individuals. We rely on the lifelong friendships made at L&C to help us find alumni who have moved or changed names over the years, causing us to lose contact with them. Follow this link to see who from your class is missing. We would love contact information on these alumni.       

HOW CAN I CONTRIBUTE TO MY 30th REUNION GIFT? 

The Annual Fund Class Gift is a way for you and your classmates to give thanks for your L&C education - and help current students experience L&C like you did. Contributions of all sizes are welcome and appreciated. If you would like to join the Philanthropy Council or have any questions about giving to Lewis & Clark, please contact Julie Newsome, jnewsome@lclark.edu or 503-768-7963.

JOIN THE VOLUNTEER GROUP!

There are many ways to support the reunion to ensure a great turnout, and that the reunion is a meaningful and fun time for your class and your overseas or off-campus group. Learn more about volunteering here or contact your staff reunion coordinator.
