  • There are a few dorms that are uglier and older than others (avoid Foster, Scholz, MacNaughton, if possible), but the dorms generally have a strong sense of community. Tir Na…

    Commons can be repetitive sometimes, but compared to most college food it's practically gourmet!

    The on-campus food is pretty good, but not 5-star.

    I have been told by many transfer students that Reed has some of the best college food. But like all dorm food, the meals get old and bland. One amazing thing about Bon Appétit, Reed's food service, is that they use all local, organic foods. The meals are always balanced and healthy and there are always options for vegetarians and vegans.

    The Caf is wonderful, offering about 5 options of cooked meals a day (always including a vegan option), and then multitudes of snacks, it is a rare occasion where school food is delicious.
