What Students Are Saying

4.34 Average Rating
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.
Katelyn from Bartlett, IL
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.
