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

My favorite class so far is Social Change in Latin America with Associate Professor Sarah Warren. It has helped me connect my interest in sociology with social justice issues. It has introduced new knowledge to me about an area of the world I haven’t had the opportunity to study before. It has also helped me narrow down what I want to focus on academically for the rest of my college experience as well as for my potential career.

What made you want to come to Lewis & Clark?

I was drawn to Lewis & Clark by the small, intimate environment paired with the liberal arts approach to academics. I really wanted to go to a school that would allow me to explore multiple interests and allow me to change my mind over time. I also wanted a school that is really supportive and aware of students’ needs for expanding their own interests and initiatives.

How did your financial aid package influence your decision to attend Lewis & Clark?

My financial aid package was incredibly influential. I wouldn’t have the ability to go to college outside of my home state if not for federal and Lewis & Clark aid. The funds I received made it possible for me to have time to explore different extracurriculars since I don’t need to have an off-campus job outside of my work study.

What do you think the value of a liberal arts education is?

I think a liberal arts education does a great job of allowing students to explore multiple interests and building up skills that will work for any career or life path. For example, one could develop communication skills, and also get introduced to many perspectives and subjects to create a well-rounded individual.
