Lewis & Clark’s summer guests

June 11, 2015

  • Lewis & Clark ranks number ten in Martha Stewart's list "15 Beautiful College Campuses Where You Can Get Hitched"
  • Lewis & Clark is featured on the cover of the current edition of Unique Venues Magazine.

The Office of Conferences and Events is looking forward to a lively summer season, extending through the middle of August. Events include Alumni Weekend, several weddings in the Estate Gardens, and more than 30 conferences and youth camps.

“We anticipate more than 1,700 conference and camp guests will visit the College, many staying overnight in our residence halls,” Associate Director of Conferences and Events Kerry Keenon said. “While they are visiting we anticipate they will explore our beautiful campus and learn more about the educational opportunities Lewis & Clark has to offer.”

Both Martha Stewart and Unique Venues magazines currently feature the beautiful gardens and event spaces available to rent at Lewis & Clark.

There are a few simple things everyone can do to make our guests feel comfortable:
  • If you see someone on campus who looks like they might be a visitor, give him or her a warm welcome
  • Wear your nametag at all times so visitors can easily identify whom to ask for assistance
  • Offer directions to anyone who seems a bit lost or confused
  • Encourage guests to visit the Manor House, the College Bookstore, Templeton Campus Center, the Rose Garden, or your favorite spot on campus
