What three words would you use to describe L&C?
Beautiful, caring, engaging
What’s your favorite class? How has it expanded your knowledge?
Arabic with Adelaide Byrum. It has taught me more Arabic and insight into Arabic culture as well.
“Professors are eager to hear about your story.”
What made you want to come to Lewis & Clark?
Lewis and Clark seemed engaging. Professors are eager to hear about your story, Arabic is offered, and the campus is gorgeous.
What was your favorite thing about the Xplore program?
I really loved the ease of not having our phones with us for the most part and having to talk and engage with people on and outside of the campus.
Have you had the chance to do research with a professor during your time at L&C? If so, describe that research.
Yes, I am doing research with Professor Norma Velasquez. The lab is great and I love doing projects. At times it is hard to do what is required sometimes.
