About Reed magazine


Reed is fundamentally a chronicle of ideas—their pursuit, their development, and their impact on the world. Reed is also the alumni magazine of the most intellectual college in America and includes articles about Reed College, alumni, professors, and students. Views expressed in Reed belong to their authors and in no way represent the officers, trustees, faculty, alumni, students, or administrators of the college, all of whom are eminently capable of articulating their own beliefs.

Reed is published four times a year by the Office of Public Affairs at Reed College and has a circulation of approximately 20,000. To subscribe, please send us an email at reed.magazine@reed.edu. Our blog, Sallyportal, is updated regularly and often contains items of breaking news.
