Haikus for Reedies

Applicants accepted to Reed this spring got an email that linked to a short web-video. The two-minute movie featured current students singing the praises of Reed through haikus (a sampling is included below). You can send your own Reed haikus to reed.magazine@reed.edu. Watch the movie at www.reed.edu/apply/accepted.

Thick letter coming
And it’s full of confetti
Here’s the video

Up by 9 for class
Heraclites doesn’t care
Fall asleep again

Homer on your mind
Sign here on the dotted line
Earn some mad
timê

For my admission
I got fireworks, not haikus
Crashed my computer

By attending Reed
You will ensure that we have
A class of freshmen

Reed is in you child
With our knowledge comes great joy
Coos the Doyle Owl

Make a difference
Trapped in a haiku factory
Come to Reed, save me
