Hannah Harrington is a born-and-raised Oregonian, and grew up in Bend. After attending Macalester College in St. Paul, MN, Hannah transferred to Lewis & Clark and graduated in 2019 with a degree in International Affairs and a French minor. Transferring was one of the best decisions she ever made, and she is very grateful for the education and community that L&C gave her. She enjoys continuing her ties to the college by attending events like Alumni Weekend, and being a part of LCYAC.
Some of her favorite memories from her L&C undergrad include: sailing on the Willamette River her second week of school, performing with the Voces Auream choir, singing along as her French professors performed MIKA’s Elle me dit at the French Club Talent Show, and grabbing drinks with her fellow IA majors and professors post-thesis presentations.
After graduation, Hannah worked at a local French immersion school, and was accepted to the TAPIF Program to teach in Rennes, France in the fall of 2020. Her plans changed due to the pandemic, but she is now happily working as an Admissions Counselor at University of Portland. She is excited to be in a position where supporting students and their stories is still at the core of her work.
In her free time you can find her discovering new coffee and tea shops, frequenting bookstores, exploring more and more of her home state, and spending time with family and friends.
