Hunting for schools that align with Reed College's emphasis on heavy reading and writing?

Yo! Need a bit of help here – I really admire Reed College for their intense focus on reading, writing, and critical thinking. It's definitely intense, I know, but I'm into that. Any of y'all know some similar schools that put a heavy emphasis on those areas? I'm looking for that deep dive into literature and thought-provoking discussions, so if there are other Reed-like colleges, hook me up with some names!

Hey there! It's really cool that you're into the heavy reading and writing aspect of college - that's a sure sign of a passionate student! My kiddo had similar interests and looked into small liberal arts colleges that are known for their rigorous academics and discussion-based classes. You might want to consider schools like St. John's College, known for their Great Books curriculum, or Kenyon College, which has a strong emphasis on literature and writing. Oberlin College is also great for those looking for vibrant discussions and a tight-knit community. Swarthmore College and Haverford College have a strong focus on undergraduate teaching and could provide the intellectual environment you're seeking. Keep an eye out for colleges with a strong core curriculum as they tend to emphasize a well-rounded, reading- and writing-intensive education. Best of luck in your search – I'm sure you'll find the right fit!
