Orientation 2017

We can’t wait to meet you!

We’re excited that you’re coming to Reed and we are planning a lor of events to help you learn about campus, meet people, and discover what it takes to be a fully engaged member of our community. Check back for updates in late March.

On this site you’ll find:

  • Information on what you need to do to get started this summer
  • Orientation Odyssey information and registration
  • Orientation schedules

Please Note: There is a solar eclipse taking place on Monday, August 21. Because Oregon is directly in the path of the eclipse, many people will be traveling here to get the best views. You may want to book your hotels as soon as possible.

If you have questions about Orientation, feel free to contact the Orientation office at orienatation@reed.edu or 503/777-7530.
