Every fall, students return to campus, and there is excitement and energy around the beginning of a new semester. Be surrounded by the buzz of intellectual curiosity and scholarly inquiry by visiting Reed's campus. Prospective students are welcome to join us for a campus tour and Introduction to Reed, an informative session where an admission counselor will talk about our academic philosophy, the value of a liberal arts education, our approach to grading, typical student life experiences, exploring Portland, and more. Fall visits begin Monday, August 30.

Interviews last 30 minutes and can be requested through the registration form. Read our Interview FAQ to learn more.
