Parent & Family Orientation
August 26 & 27
A student's transition from high school to college is important and meaningful for their parents. To help with the transition, Reed invites parents and guardians to attend Parent & Family Orientation, which takes place concurrently with New Reedie Orientation. Please plan to join us!
When You Arrive at Reed
Parents and guardians check in separately from their students. View a map of campus to find your way to Kaul Auditorium. If you are driving to campus, please note that the west lot is closest to Kaul.
Plan Ahead: Parent & Family Weekend
Parent & Family Weekend is a chance to attend classes, participate in events, and glimpse everyday life at Reed. Activities begin Friday, November 8, and conclude Saturday, November 9. Online registration will be available in late August.
Visiting the Pacific Northwest
If you are arriving early to drop off your student for any of our pre-Orientation programs or trips, take time to see what the Pacific Northwest has to offer. Reed is just ninety minutes west of Mount Hood and ninety minutes east of the Pacific Ocean. Meanwhile, the high desert, southeast of Reed, enjoys 300 days of sunshine, rugged desertscapes, and snowy mountains. The Portland Oregon Visitors Association can help you find the best places to explore and to plan your trip.
