What three words would you use to describe L&C?
“I could never imagine any other path for myself since L&C has made such a positive impact on my life.”
What made you want to come to Lewis & Clark?
As an older, non-traditional student, I knew that I wanted to stay in Portland for the foreseeable future. While earning my associate’s degree at 波特兰 Community College, I did not even think Lewis & Clark was a feasible option for a student in my unique position. One day I went to talk to my English professor, and he encouraged me to apply to L&C and other academically challenging schools in the area. I told him that I could never afford it, and he explained to me that I was a good candidate for a scholarship. Thanks to his encouragement, I applied, got a more than generous financial aid package, and fell in love with the campus the first time I visited. Now, I could never imagine any other path for myself since L&C has made such a positive impact on my life in so many ways.
Have you had the chance to do research with a professor during your time at L&C? If so, describe that research.
Try reaching out to a professor in a department you are interested in. Most professors are excited to tell you what their classes are like, what they expect of their students, and their general thoughts about L&C.
