Student Loans for Reed College Students

About Reed College

Reed College StudentReed College is a co-educational and non sectarian liberal arts college and is located in the southeast area of Portland, Oregon. Reed’s undergraduate program is known nationally for its intellectually challenging curriculum that seeks to strike a balance between innovative learning and in-depth study in various academic disciplines. Reed is not your average college, as it contains an entirely student run nuclear reactor to support its science program and it does not issue traditional grades to students, as it is generally hesitant to participate in the ratings culture. In fact, Reed encourages its students to simply educate themselves rather than become involved in the race for higher grade point averages. These unconventional but hugely effective teaching methodologies have paid off, as Reed College is amongst the top educational institutions in the United States. Apart from academics, the College offers a rich and vibrant social life, as students may participate in diverse activities such as arts, music, theatre, movies and sports.
