The Full Orientation Schedule: Using Guidebook

Our Orientation schedule is powered by the Guidebook app. In addition to viewing the schedule, you will be able to access maps, restaurant and shopping lists, campus resources, and other useful information. Information in the app will continue to be updated throughout the summer.  

There are two ways to use Guidebook after it goes live:

  1. Through the app: Search your app store for Reed College and select the Orientation guide or use this link to receive a text. New students: please allow push notifications to receive reminders 10 minutes before Generally Obligatory (GO) events.
  2. Through the web: Use the Guidebook website to view contents of the app. Note: the website has slightly less functionality than the app.
