Reed is tiny, less than 1500 students at any given time.
It’s not the big protest school in Portland. Portland State University, with its campus downtown, is a much more significant influence on local politics, radical and otherwise.
Reed doesn’t have much cultural impact even on its own immediate surroundings. There might be a few college kids studying late at Papaccino’s or Southeast Grind, but there are no political flyers or radical meetings in the Woodstock neighborhood that I’ve ever noticed.
So what I’m saying is this is not Berkeley in the '60s. What happens at Reed stays at Reed, and it doesn’t actually happen to very many people, and it’s not really related to anything else going on in Oregon or even down the street.
