Administration: I think all the policies in place are valid.

5 College Freshman

Scholarships: I am getting so much merit scholarship and financial aid. It's awesome because I have a chance now to go to a great school like this one.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: I don't really go to parties that much so I don't have too much to say!

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: It can get kind of boring after a while, but it's cool because the Bon tries their best to be environmentally friendly by serving local or organic food, which I like a lot.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I live in a quad. The room has a lot of space for a college dorm. My dorm is kind of a hike from the rest of campus, but I still really like it. Everyone is friendly on my floor and we have plenty of RA organized activities. Housing is pretty expensive, but the convenience of living on campus with a meal plan is great. My roommates and I get along well, and the process of selecting roommates was in depth so that I got matched up with compatible people. I am happy with the housing situation.

Scholarships: Oh boy do I want more

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: Could be better but it's still good

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Not the cheapest around, but there are an overwhelming number of delicious places to try. Food carts are a great place to start.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: The direct area that the school is located is in the hills which is fairly expensive. Right now an apartment close to campus is running at almost $1000 for a 1 bedroom. The apartments are nice up there, but living further away from campus students can usually get a 2 bedroom for between $750-900 and share it with a roommate to make it more affordable.

5 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: The campus is about a 5-7 minute drive from downtown Lake Oswego. There are a lot of nice restaurants available for either those who can afford it, or for a really nice date night. There are also less expensive options that are available. In Lake Oswego there is also a dedicated gluten free bakery called Kyra's BakeShop. All kinds of baked goods and a rare experience for someone who can't eat gluten to be able to go there and order anything you see. The pastries are good, now they are also offering lunch types meals. Prices for it are reasonable.

3 College Junior

Administration: I haven't had any problems with the strictness so I don't really know except for parking. The do watch to make sure everyone has paid for parking. The campus safety does make regular rounds around the campus.

4 College Junior

Scholarships: I haven't had any problems with my financial aid. Thus far I have gotten my aid without hassle, and living disbursements come on the dates scheduled.

4 College Junior

Party Scene: Thus far in the last year I have had no trouble with the technology.

4 College Junior

Campus Food: I eat the gluten free options at school because of being celiac. Most of the soups have been a win for flavor and none of them have made me sick. However flour choices they are using for the gluten free cookies isn't a good one right now. But when I am hungry I also find that there are some options for me.

College Junior

Campus Housing: I do not live on campus but enjoy how clean, quiet, and safe that the campus feels when I walk around. I am there fairly often that you could almost say that I live there. But as a grad student I don't have the option to live there, and as an adult I enjoy having the separate home from school.

3 College Freshman

Academics: They don't offer too many majors, but for now I'm undeclared.

1 College Freshman

Greek Life: We don't have Greek life here.

3 College Freshman

Administration: Campo is so strict that there are absolutely no parties on campus at all. Unless one includes sitting in a dorm room with some music playing.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: There is not much crime on campus, and I always feel safe! I think because it's a small school it would be hard to get away with much.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: I see a lot of athletes enjoying themselves and getting a good experience, but I do not participate, so I don't know much. I don't think our school has much sporty spirit though.

3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: L&C is more about intimate kick-backs.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.
