2021 update

[July 30 update] We are sad to announce that due to the rise of Covid-19 and the logistical issues related to safety with communal living at Westwind, we are unable to host this year's trip to Westwind. We will miss the keg, the campfire, the tasty meals, the ocean view, and our time together.

Save the date for next year's Westwind Weekemd: October 14–16, 2022.

Westwind: October 8–10, 2021 is canceled

From the early 60s through the early 90s, students at Reed spent a weekend in the fall enjoying surf, sand, a talent show, green eggs and ham, and the unique setting that is Westwind on the Oregon coast. Reed alumni revived the tradition in 2002 with a family-friendly approach.

The 2012 weekend was graced with gorgeous weather; check out photos by Ben Salzberg '94.
