Portland is a core part of Lewis & Clark’s identity. From our Connect-Portland (PDX) courses that tie our academic content directly to our location to the campus shuttle that will take you (for free!) to the best the city has to offer, being located in the “nation’s capital of cool” is just one of many compelling reasons to choose L&C.
