A Reed education is about thriving in a genuine intellectual community. It engages you in serious work and brings out unexpected abilities and interests. Characterized by scholarly collaboration and active learning, the Reed experience will encourage you to challenge received wisdom and develop a wide range of critical thinking and problem-solving skills. You will be taught not just to think independently but to think anew—to master that most difficult maneuver, the intellectual pivot.
From the moment you arrive on campus you will discover that every dimension of a Reed education—from the academic opportunities to the recreational and service experiences—supports the personal, ethical, and intellectual development of our students.
