Context for the uninitiated: Every Reed student spends his or her senior year writing a big fancy thesis. Twice a year (i.e., in the spring for regular students and in the fall for those who started their theses in the spring) there’s a Thesis Parade, at which the seniors (identifiable by their plastic laurels) dance and scream and make out with everyone and ritually burn copies of their completed theses while the rest of us spray them with champagne. Then they march through the library, across the lawn, and up to the registrar's office to symbolically submit their theses.

Congratulations, seniors!

Photos from previous Thesis Parades: fall ’05, spring ’06, fall ’06, spring ’07, fall ’07, spring ’08, fall ’08, spring ’09, fall ’09, spring ’10, and fall ’10.

See them bigger and buy prints at my website.

Speaking as a decades-long photojournalist, you have provided the most comprehensive coverage of this event that could possibly exist!

Back in the early 60s I had a friend named "Migsy" Burtner, in Amarillo, TX, who went to Reed. Recently I've been trying to track her down with no success, partly because I simply don't recall her first name. Her mother and father were Evan and Ellen.

There is no such thing as too many Renn Fayre pictures. These are GORGEOUS.

Selling prints! What a great idea. I hope you sell a ton.

Thanks! I've been selling (and advertising) them since fall 2009, actually. But people aren't into it. I've sold, like, four, total.

Please take them next year! I'll buy any and all picture of me making out with my friends.

Also, someone took my picture while I was making out with someone this year, but it made me sadcakes when it wasn't you.
