Really glad I ended up at Reed. I like our school's culture, though sometimes it can get a little stuck on itself. Fun events, sweet people, really great classes, good club choices. Really queer friendly, not so racially diverse. Generally really tolerant, progressive, and safe school. Serious about learning, but definitely have a lot of fun too.

This first year at Reed has by far been one of the most expansive experiences of my life. I don't think I ever would have had or taken this academic, social, relational, business opportunities anywhere else, and the level to which they spur you on to live your life is incredible.

All of the professors appear very interested in the fields they teach and that has made classes more engaging; however it also creates a lot of stress because you don't want to let your teachers down which can be seen in the pretty toxic stress culture at Reed.
