Lewis & Clark College Reviews
I was expecting LC to be pretty diverse so I was bummed when I arrived and saw that almost everyone is rich, white, and mostly from California!
The winter weather is freaking miserable! However, we basically live in a forest which is super dope!
Everyone is really cool and friendly, and there is art everywhere which I love! People love to complain about the food but I think it is pretty good. Some dorms are a bit old but you quickly learn to love them. If you have a fear of public bathrooms you will have to overcome it!
Overall a really beautiful campus with very caring teachers and a diversity problem.
