Reed College is an liberal arts and sciences institution in Portland, Oregon. The college is dedicated almost exclusively to academia and features bachelor's degrees in 40 majors and programs with no social clubs, fraternities, or varsity athletic programs. The emphasis at Reed is on learning, not grades, and students are more often provided with feedback than a letter grades, unless requested. Reed's campus is filled with Tudor-Gothic style architecture and a forested canyon nature preserve at the center. It's also home to the Douglas F. Cooley Memorial Art Gallery and The Nuclear Research Reactor, the only one in the world on a liberal arts college campus.
Great college, but not for everyone. A lot of people either make it or break it the first semester. You have to take this college seriously or you won't last long.

From the atmosphere, experience sitting in on classes, and overall feel of the school, I can tell that Reed is an exceptional place. While it may not be for everyone, I'd suggest visiting, for you will know for sure.
