PDX Cal Alumni Club

The PDX Cal Alumni Club is made up of UC Berkeley alumni of all ages and professions residing in the NW Oregon and SW Washington area. We get together for athletic, social, and cultural events. We are always interested in finding new members who are Cal alumni and want to connect with other alumni in the area.

Come build the PNW Cal community with us!



The Soggy Bears get together several times a year to socialize. We sponsor Football Viewing parties, a Book Club, Philanthropic activities,  Trailblazer games, a Summer Picnic, Visiting Cal educational events, the new student’s reception, and other ad hoc events.  To find out about our events, please check the events section of our Facebook page.  We also publish a newsletter with upcoming events.  Please sign up on the “Get Involved” section of this website to get on our mailing list.
