Every year, Reed (Portland, Oregon) seeks to introduce intelligent, engaged, community-minded juniors to Reed through our junior fly-in program. Students selected to attend the program have the option to either:
1. Join us for February’s Junior Visit Day and more. They’ll spend two nights on campus (February 19 and 20), participate in a daylong exploration of the college application process, learn about Reed, and visit our conference classes.
2. Choose their own adventure. Spend one night on campus (Sunday–Thursday) on select dates in February and March and spend their days learning about Reed and visiting our conference classes.
The application for Junior Scholars is live on our website http://www.reed.edu/apply/visit/multicultural-programs.html ; applications received by January 20 will be prioritized.
