Overall ExperienceWhat's This?

Though it may be a small school, LC has a lot to offer; the student just has to be willing to go out and get it. While marijuana is openly used on campus, it is not impossible to get away from it, and it's not usually an issue to most students. It is not uncommon to see people walking barefoot in the rain to their classes. But students at LC have a unique bond, due to the small campus size, and it is impossible for a student to walk to class without running into at least two people he or she knows. Of course, the campus is small, and it doesn’t take long for that to become apparent. That being said, the Pioneer Express shuttle comes in handy, making it easy to get away from what can sometimes be referred to as the “LC Bubble."

The academics are challenging, but rewardingly so, and the school’s environment is comfortable enough that the students find it easy to get to know their teachers. It is common for professors to invite students over to their homes for dinner, and most professors usually have daily office hours of which students take advantage. The school offers many opportunities for volunteer work, resume-building workshops, and internships that students can get credit for. The classes at LC are commonly very small and hardly ever exceed 60, with some being as small as 20 students. The students at Lewis & Clark are motivated to do more than sit in a classroom and learn; most are outgoing and have goals they wish to pursue, and are always willing to go out of their way to prepare themselves for whatever it is they wish to achieve.

Diversity: While our diversity could, and hopefully will be better, the institution really values diversity, and I appreciate that.

Majors: Students don't have to declare a major until the end of their sophomore year, although they can any day they want--a friend declared his on the first day of school!
