More than 1500 guests expected to visit campus this summer

May 09, 2016

Beginning this week and continuing through the middle of August, the Office of Conferences and Events will welcome several weddings in the Estate Gardens, dozens of visiting conferences and youth camps, and more than 1000 alumni and friends attending Alumni Weekend.

“With 1,500 guests staying overnight in our residence halls, we anticipate they will explore our beautiful campus and learn more about the educational opportunities Lewis & Clark has to offer,” Associate Director Kerry Keenon said. “Whether the participants are first time visitors or have come to Lewis & Clark many times, we hope they will enjoy their time here.”

Four simple things everyone can do to make our guests feel comfortable:

  1. If you see someone on campus that looks like a visitor, give them a warm welcome.
  2. Wear your name tag at all times so visitors can easily identify whom to ask for assistance.
  3. Offer directions or answer questions for anyone who might seem a bit lost or confused.
  4. Encourage guests to visit the Manor House, the College Bookstore, Templeton Campus Center, the Rose Garden, or your favorite spot on campus.
