Favorite places:

Recently ranked the second most beautiful college campus in the country, Lewis & Clark’s park-like campus is nestled among towering trees and trillium-lined creeks in a quiet residential neighborhood. In this video, students talk about their favorite places on campus, from the student-run co-op to the reflecting pool with a view of Mount Hood.

Best classes:

As a college of liberal arts and sciences, Lewis & Clark offers reading, writing, and arithmetic—plus international economics, marine biology, feminist theory, existentialism, and a whole lot more. In this video, students offer their recommendations for classes that all students should take at Lewis & Clark.

Inside the Department of Theatre:

With two stages—the black box and the main stage—the Department of Theatre offers a wide variety of performances. In this video, student actors, directors, designers, and technicians talk about their experiences within the department.

The Co-op:

Lewis & Clark’s student-run cooperative is more than just a place to grab a cup of fair-trade coffee—it’s also a popular place to study and a venue for concerts and DIY festivals. In this video, students talk about the co-op’s role as a community gathering spot.

Stewart Hall:

Each residence hall on campus has a different personality, and many halls focus on themes like environmentalism and performing arts. Stewart Hall is a wellness-themed hall, and in this video, an RA from Stewart discusses life on campus and offers a glimpse into her single room.

Watzek Library:

No matter their major, Lewis & Clark students spend time at Watzek Library. In this video, a senior psychology major offers a look at some of her favorite features of the library.

Akin Hall:

As home to Lewis & Clark’s Multicultural Themed Community, the mission of Akin Hall is to enrich the experience of the student body and the Lewis & Clark community by promoting intercultural understanding and celebration. In this video, Akin residents talk about the friendships they’ve made within the hall and the value of living in a closely knit multicultural community.

While at Lewis & Clark, many students conduct advanced research alongside distinguished faculty, investigating topics from gecko adhesion to neurotoxicity. In this video, students discuss researching memory in the Olin Center for Physics and Chemistry.
