Fall Visit Program

October 14, 2019

Our Fall Visit Program is the most in-depth introduction to the college we offer. Visit us and take behind-the-scenes tours of campus, including our nuclear reactor and canyon; participate in forums with staff and faculty; sit in on classes and open houses; and hang out with plenty of current Reed students. High school seniors who live more than 100 miles from Reed may also register to stay overnight for a slumber party-style night in our residence halls that includes special evening events.

Students living more than 100 miles from Reed are welcome to register to spend one night as a guest in a residence hall as part of their Fall Visit Program experience. If you are within 100 miles of Reed and want to stay overnight on campus, please make arrangements to do so on another night in the fall.


Apply to Reed using the Common Application or the Coalition Application.
