Fun Facts

  • Portland, Oregon's Reed College, an all undergrad institution, has its own nuclear reactor on campus, and if that wasn't cool enough, it has more female operators than all the other research reactors in the world . . . combined.
  • Know your student nicknames, part I: Reed College students are known as "Reedies," Emerson College students are "Emersonians," Michigan State students are "Spartans," and University of Maine students are "Maineiacs!"
  • Make sure you grab a lance and a giant turkey leg for the Renn Fayre at Reed College! (Okay, maybe not the lance.) This academic-year-end campus festival celebrates Renaissance music, food, sports, and art. It also happens to celebrate seniors turning in their theses!
  • Reed College celebrates Seventh Annual Nitrogen Day . . . every year. The seventh element (get it?!) is honored with multiple festivities, including a Nitrogen-themed haiku festival.
  • Reed College's twice-annual Canyon Day involves planting native trees and shrubs in Reed Canyon.
  • At Reed College Renn Fayre (originally a one-day Renaissance fair) has evolved into an annual weeklong celebration with music, refreshments, fireworks, arts, and sports. The week kicks off with the thesis parade as seniors march from the library steps to the registrar's office.
  • At Reed College, "Scroungers" sometimes sit at the end of the cafeteria and are given leftover food by other students. Considered "environmentally friendly," one Scrounger noted, "We have very little cafeteria waste."
