Fall Visit Fly-in Program

What is the Fall Visit Fly-in Program?

Reed 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. Students stay in residence halls with current students and participate in our Fall Visit Program, a daylong event of classroom visits and student-professor engagement opportunities. Reed also arranges trips to explore highlights of Portland. All travel is arranged and paid for by the college (including flights to and from Portland).
