The Full Orientation Schedule: Using Guidebook

We have a mobile app (and an online interface) to guide you through New Reedie Orientation. It's all there—the schedule (with reminders*), the list of activities, and other campus information and resources. The schedule continues to be updated throughout the summer so check it frequently.

There are two ways to download the app to your mobile device: you can search your app store for Reed College and then select the Orientation guide or you can use this link to receive a text. You can also visit the Guidebook website using your web browser. We recommend the app because it has more functionality than the website.

*New students: please allow push notifications to receive reminders ten minutes before Generally Obligatory (GO) events.
