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

My favorite class has been Interpersonal Media. This class allowed me to explore and discuss topics surrounding social media, communication, and how I relate to the world around me. I really enjoyed former faculty member Heather Ashley Hayes’s leadership and organization of this course. She really opened my eyes to the world of rhetoric and media studies. If I hadn’t gone abroad I would have loved to minor in RHMS. Although I am a psychology major, I still plan to utilize the lessons I learned in this class in my future career.

What made you want to come to Lewis & Clark?

I admired the small size and stunning campus.

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

Lewis & Clark College offered me a very generous financial aid package that I was glad to accept. I am so thankful to the donors, alumni, friends of Lewis & Clark, and more for allowing me to attend this institution. I have seen the impact that donating to the school makes, and I wouldn’t be here without those generous donors.
