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.

Junior Scholars Program

Junior Scholars, Reed's new spring travel scholarship, invites a highly qualified group of high school juniors from around the US to visit Reed between March 1-17 or March 28-31 (overnight visit included). Students may also visit during our Junior Visit Day on Saturday, March 19 (overnight visit not included). All air travel, on-campus meals, and on-campus lodging (when an overnight visit is included) will be covered by the college.

Visiting a college campus is an amazing experience: you get to act like a student for a day and feel what it's like to be a community member. Visiting Reed is transformative. We have a saying here that "only Reed feels like Reed" and we make sure that all of our campus visitors have the opportunity to truly engage with our community.

If you come to campus between March 1-17 or March 28-31, you'll be able to:
• stay overnight with a current Reed student;
• attend classes of interest;
• enjoy meals with current Reed students;
• learn more about Reed through an information session and campus tour.

Applications submitted by February 10 will be prioritized, but we will be accepting applications on a rolling basis subsequently. If you have any questions, please contact the Multicultural Outreach Coordinators, Wayne Kim and John Perkins at 800/547.4750 or email juniorscholars@reed.edu. If you are interested in visiting as a Junior Scholar during Junior Visit Day (March 19), please contact us.

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.
