More than 1,400 people traveled from near and far to be at Lewis & Clark’s Homecoming and Family Weekend in October. We cheered on Pioneer football and volleyball; dined on clam chowder at the tailgate; watched Associate Professor Bryan Sebok’s award-winning documentary, Food Truck: The Movie; and recognized the legacies of Professors Peter Christenson and Herschel Snodgrass for their combined 61 years on Palatine Hill.
