Founded in 1908, Reed is a residential college with a campus located in Portland’s Eastmoreland neighborhood, featuring architecture based on the Tudor-Gothic style,  and a forested canyon wilderness preserve at its center. Reed is known for its mandatory freshman humanities program, for its required senior-year thesis, as the only private undergraduate college with a primarily student-run nuclear reactor supporting its science programs,[4] and for the unusually high percentage of graduates who go on to earn PhDs and other postgraduate degrees.


Reed College was founded in 1908 in Portland, Oregon, as an independent, coeducational, nonsectarian college of the liberal arts and sciences.
