The most obvious advantage about attending Lewis & Clark is that you get to learn and spend time on a gorgeous campus! The short walks between class are a pleasure every day. Moreover, I feel comfortable knowing I am getting an education from professors who have extensively studied the topics they teach. The small class sizes provide students with a close and trusting relationship with their professors. I feel extremely fortunate to have spent the past two years at Lewis & Clark.

I originally planned on attending a state school in California and actually had been committed for 11 months with intents of playing softball. I came into contact with LC and instantly knew that I had a decision to make. To everyone else, it seemed that decommitting and giving up a full ride to play D1 softball was absolutely crazy and not even an option, but to me, I knew I belonged at Lewis & Clark. The coaches, campus, professors, faculty and student life was absolutely amazing. The atmosphere was instantly welcoming and as time goes on, I continue to love the school more. I personally went through some medical issues and at the beginning I felt as if it was going to be a long recovery by myself, but everyone around me provided me with an extreme amount of support. I have only completed one semester at LC, but I have never been happier. I am looking forward to the next 3 1/2 years as a Pioneer and cannot picture myself anywhere else.
Lewis and Clark college has excellent professors who really care about each individual student, they are always available during office hours. Small classes are great too. The student life is very relaxed and friendly.
