Most Recent Review
Reed College is very socially liberal, but has a very conservative education. Students study the fundamentals, as evidenced by the only required class, Humanities 110, which is a survey of ancient Greek and Roman culture. It is one of the best places to attend if you truly want to test your mental rigor.
