Admission

Reed Admit Day

RAD (Reed Admit Day) on April 13 is a great opportunity for you to experience life on campus as an admitted student.

Reed College students in activities fair

Registration for RAD is now closed.

At RAD, you'll see our conference classes in action, talk with faculty and students, and discover the academic departments that inspire you. Between activities, wander the thesis tower and find the oldest thesis in residence, absorb the natural surroundings with a walk in the canyon, or sip a cup of tea in one of the Paradox coffeehouses. Learn about student activities, residence life, financial aid, and a variety of on-campus services. Come and discover what makes the Reed community so unique.

Once you register to attend RAD, we will schedule you to visit at least one class in an area of interest. Parents and family members are welcome to attend all RAD activities except class visits, lunch with Reedies, and evening dorm activities. A full schedule will be available at check-in, but a tentative schedule is below.

If you need suggestions for accommodations check out our accommodations page. Additional information about traveling to campus may be found here, or plan a personalized public transportation trip on TriMet.
