What’s It Like?
No one can give you a better sense of what it’s really like to study English at Lewis & Clark than our current students and recent alumni.

Eventually, you will find your people and your people will find you.
Arista Engineer, BA ’19Hometown: Pune, IndiaOverseas Program: London, EnglandExtracurriculars: Bollywood Club, International Fair, Lunch Host for Admissions, works in the AES Department and Watzek Library
The classes on my overseas program in London provided me with opportunities to explore English literature in more varied ways, such as through the study of contemporary works and linguistics.

No matter what happens, things will always work out for you in the end. It may take time, and I cannot guarantee that it will work out the way you expected, but if there’s anything college has taught me thus far, it’s that you will be just fine.
Sydney Owada, BA ’19Hometown: Fresno, CaliforniaOverseas Program: London, EnglandExtracurriculars: Pioneer Log opinions editor, LC Dance Company president, Dance X and Y participant/choreographer
My favorite class was Medieval Manuscripts with Karen Gross, in which we studied the history of manuscript production and paleography. The practical aspect of this class stands out in my mind as a unique aspect of the type of education Lewis & Clark facilitates: unconventional and widely applicable.
Brynn Rova, BA ’19Hometown: Saint Michael, MinnesotaOverseas Program: Dublin, IrelandExtracurriculars: Anything in the theatre department, a cappella, L&C Quidditch Club, Admissions Ambassadors program, Writing Center
I’ve always been in love with writing and reading. Books are such an essential part of my past and who I am that I can’t imagine not being an English major.
