What Students Are Saying

4.34 Average Rating
When they tell you Reed is hard, they mean it.
Molly
Reed's academic rigor is legendary, and the problem sets make sure the legends continue. While intro-level classes do not have quite the same level of rigor, the workload is heavy. The introductory humanities course, for example, requires about a book a week of reading.
A Reed Student from Portland, OR
The professors are very helpful and friendly, but they ask a lot from their students. Slacking is not an options. I know math majors who are doing original proofs and religion majors studying never-before-seen Chinese scrolls as undergraduate. Work is a given.
From what I have heard from current students (for I haven't started yet) much of your free time will be spent studying.
Hannah from Lafayette, LA
Reed is not easy. But it is completely manageable with the knowledge that all students are facing their own challenges and that your teachers are always there to help.
