Multicultural Visit Programs

Diversity of thought and experience is valued as central to the Reed experience. Who we are—in our many identities, experiences, and ways of being—informs not only what, how, and why we learn, but what we bring to the conference table, where a plurality of ideas and voices deepens the conversation.

Reed Overnight Multicultural Experience (ROME)

ROME, Reed’s fall program (November 5-7, 2015) invites a highly qualified group of high school seniors from around the US to campus for a three-day, two-night exploration of Reed and the City of Portland. ROME students stay in residence halls with current students and follow a program of classroom visits and student-professor engagement opportunities. Just ten minutes from downtown Portland, Reed also arranges trips to explore highlights of the city. Travel is arranged and paid for by the college.

Spring Invitational Program for Admitted Students

Reed offers travel vouchers each spring to admitted students from historically underrepresented racial and ethnic backgrounds for visiting campus during Reed Admit Days or through our regular campus visit program during the month of April. There is no separate application for the program. Selected students will receive an invitation and travel voucher at the same time that they receive their decisions, in their admission packets.
