Reed College is an egalitarian, nonsectarian, and coeducation liberal arts institution in Portland, Oregon. It is a residential college filled with Tudor-Gothic style architecture and a forested canyon nature preserve is found at the center of campus. Forbes lists the college as #13 in the West. The college is dedicated almost exclusively to academia with no social clubs, fraternities, or varsity athletic programs.
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.

Reed is a wonderland for quirky and intellectual people who want to be learning and growing every day. The classes are small and individualized, providing an environment where you are encouraged to explore your own ideas and push others to do the same. With constant support from the faculty, you always know where you are and how you can be improving, and you are given constant kindness throughout the academic rigor.
