College Commencement

Senior Experience

The Senior Experience is a series of events and programs designed to celebrate your last year at Lewis & Clark. This page contains information that will help you navigate the many fun activities planned for your last semester and other resources you will find useful as you move towards graduation.

Make sure you also explore the Commencement Website, which has all the useful information on the steps you need to take to graduate, and help you and your families start planning for the Commencement Weekend.

We need YOUR INPUT! Student feedback can improve the L&C Student Experience. Here’s how:
Graduating seniors take the Senior Survey, open until May 1, 2019. Search “Senior Survey” in your L&C email for the link. You could win Amazon and/or iTunes gift cards. Help make a positive impact on this community!

Are You Ready to Join the Online Alumni Community?

  1. Like Lewis & Clark College on Facebook and stay updated 
  2. Build a LinkedIn profile and join the Lewis & Clark alumni group, which has over 3,000 members. LinkedIn is a professional networking website that will help you maintain a professional presence online, search for networking contacts, and find career opportunities.
  3. Join the Lewis & Clark College Career Network (L&C Net) on LinkedIn - visit this page for more information. Over 3,000 alumni have agreed to share career information and experience with L&C students!
  4. Create a email address now (if you don’t have one already) that you will use after graduation. Your lclark email will be valid for one year after you graduate. It’s a good idea to start transitioning soon.

Update your Contact Information

Update the alumni office with your email and a new address (not your MSC box) where you will receive mail after you graduate. This is an important step, as you will receive event invitations at the address and email that the alumni office has for you. Events are a great opportunity to build networking contacts, stay in touch with L&C, and meet fellow alumni. Make sure to update the alumni office every time your contact information changes by emailing or calling our main line at 503.768.7950.

Once you graduate, you will gain access to the myLC alumni directory, which is also a great way to keep us updated on your whereabouts and find contact information for classmates.
