谁是你在校园里的导师?为何你认为这个人你的导师?

Biology Professors Ken Clifton and 损伤garet Metz have shaped my time at Lewis & Clark. Professor Clifton taught my first biology course here. He and I also led a College Outdoors freshwater ecology trip to Florida, and I am now going to study abroad with him in Tanzania! Professor Metz is my advisor, taught my Plant Biology course, and I am now working in her community ecology lab studying the mechanisms that drive forest diversity. Both Professor Clifton and Metz have had a really influential role in shaping how I see and interpret the natural world.

What made you want to come to Lewis & Clark?

I knew I wanted to attend a small liberal arts college, but I didn’t know where. A combination of all of the exciting academic options and the West Coast drew me to Lewis & Clark in the end. College Outdoors also played a huge role in my decision to attend Lewis & Clark, as I knew I wanted an outlet to get outside and CO is one of the best programs in the country! After visiting campus and experiencing 波特兰 I knew that I wanted to attend Lewis & Clark. Being so close to the city while having 俄勒冈’s coast, mountains, and desert in my backyard was really important to me!

If you have studied or will study overseas while at Lewis & Clark, how did you choose your program? What did your overseas study add to your L&C experience so far?

我将在坦桑尼亚留学期间的2019年秋天,我选择了,因为它的核心部件生物学的这一计划。我将获得的信贷两个疗程的生物即计入国外的大部分时间,这释放了我的时间表,我现在可以这样主要在两个完全不同的领域!再加上,谁不想学习上的Safari生物学东非大草原上或珊瑚礁!?

最重要的,户外大学给了我一个插座,因为有人没有车,下车校园,去外面周末期间。这大学里我发现蓟马户外刷新,并为下一周准备我和这个“复位”在我学业上的成功最终起到了显著的作用。与高校和户外旅行主要是工作一个很好的补充,教室因为它拥有专业的经验,我offered首选如何发展作为一个领导者和户外活动的人,我可能已被授予不是相反。蓟马挑战了我领先害羞性格,使我更加自信,更好的沟通,我知道我将是非常宝贵的进入职场。随着高校户外旅行也是一个很好的方式来继续我的教育,生物学,他们让我继续经历,并与不同的生态系统和环境的相互作用。

你有什么建议给未来的学生?

Come visit and ask questions! I know this seems obvious, but seeing the campus and interacting with everyone here will give you the best perspective as to what life at Lewis & Clark is like!
