What’s your favorite class? How has it expanded your knowledge?

My favorite class I have taken so far has been Key Monuments with Associate Professor of Art History Benjamin David. Ben brought new and remarkable perspectives to Western art history that I had yet to experience. His kindness and caring for students is clear, and he emulates a well-rounded approach to knowledge in his lectures and assignments. 10/10, would recommend!

Who is your mentor on campus? Why do you consider this person your mentor?

My mentor on campus is Associate Professor of German Studies Therese Augst. Not only is she a wonderful and gifted educator, but she is also supportive and kind in all matters of life. She gives great advice, and is always available as a resource to her students. Therese has advocated for me as a student and has more than once been willing to speak on my behalf. Most importantly, I see her as a life-long friend.

What made you want to come to Lewis & Clark?

The intimate class sizes, being near the city, and the study abroad opportunities!

How do you describe the liberal arts?

All-inclusive, interactive, and discussion-based learning.

Where do you find community on campus?

I found my community through my Living-Learning Community in Manzanita Hall and through my New Student Trip. I have also made strong connections through my classes and extracurriculars.

If you went on a New Student Trip with College Outdoors, how did it shape your experience as an incoming student?

It was a great starting point for making friends, exploring my interests, and learning about L&C before we arrived on campus. It also released the stress of entering a completely new environment.

If you have studied or will study overseas while at Lewis & Clark, how did you choose your program? What did your overseas study add to your L&C experience so far?

I will participate in the yearlong Munich, Germany, overseas program starting August 2021. Studying abroad is a requirement for my German studies major, but the Munich program is actually one of the reasons I chose to come to L&C!
