What three words would you use to describe L&C?
I would say that my mentor on campus is Harold McNaron, the advisor of the Associated Students of Lewis & Clark and director of Student Leadership and Service. Harold is always there to give me advice and provide much-needed information about Lewis & Clark, 波特兰, and life in general.
“Lewis & Clark has given me the tools to become a better student and a better person.”
What made you want to come to Lewis & Clark?
I always thought that I wanted to attend a huge university with tens of thousands of students and giant lecture halls. Then I visited Lewis & Clark and fell in love. The campus was absolutely gorgeous, the people in 波特兰 were incredibly kind, and it was obvious the professors cared about their students and were passionate about what they were teaching. I left my campus visit knowing that L&C was the right fit for me.
How did you get involved with Campus Living? What has your involvement with Campus Living added to your L&C experience?
My advice for prospective students is to make an effort to reach out. This applies to everything: reach out to your professors, your peers, your resident advisors, etc… Everyone at Lewis & Clark wants you to succeed and is not only willing but excited to help you do it. Make use of the resources around you and do not be afraid to ask for guidance.
What have been the biggest challenges you have faced at Lewis & Clark?
The biggest challenge I have faced at L&C was finding time for all of the things that I wanted to do in my first few months here. I wanted to be involved in multiple clubs, get perfect grades, and go out with my friends all of the time. It was fairly difficult to navigate at first, but with careful planning and a bit of practice, I am now able to do all of those things and more.
What’s your best Lewis & Clark memory so far?
My best L&C memory so far is definitely taking a trip to Los Angeles last spring break with the friends I made in my residence hall. We took a train down and hung out for the whole week.
How has Lewis & Clark changed you?
I have gained academic intelligence, for sure, but I have also learned how to think outside the box, how to be a more empathetic friend, and how to be a more engaged citizen. Lewis & Clark has given me the tools to become a better student and a better person.
