Should You Go?[edit | edit source]

According to studentsreview, 81% of students would choose to return to RC, whereas 19% would not. However, it's not for everyone. Those who don't plan on going to graduate school will find that many employers have never heard of Reed. People who are uncomfortable in tiny classes (often around one dozen) with much discussion may want to look at Category:Universities instead. "Reedies" are hard workers, and in such a small college, you can't get away with slacking off. Since there are no fraternities or sororities, the party scene is not very prevalent. However, illicit drugs are relatively common. Lastly, conservatives probably will not fit in.
