Pre-Arrival Information for Newly Admitted Students

July 15, 2009

Before arriving in Portland to begin your studies at Lewis & Clark, you are sure to have questions and concerns about a wide variety of topics. These will range from the curriculum and advising process, to issues of school policy, to your health and well-being, and even to simple questions about mailboxes, school address and so on.

This web site is designed to answer some of your questions well before your arrival on the Lewis & Clark campus. It is a “work in progress” and will be added to over the summer. Naturally, there will be questions not addressed here and you should feel free to call, write or email if you need additional information. Also, if you have suggestions for topics that need to be addressed, please let us know.

The topics below are listed by category and are in alphabetical order.
