  • Jill Phillips Brueningsen BA ’83 writes: “Lewis & Clark College prepared me for a digital future, although I did not know that in 1979, my freshman year. By 2000, publishing had moved to the internet, and I wanted to learn more. My comprehensive L&C education made it easy for me to return to university study and earn a master’s in computer information systems. I now work as a systems analyst for an insurance company. The best part about Lewis & Clark is that I made some lifetime friends. When we get together, we pick up where we left off. See you at the 2018 reunion!”

  • It’s said that when a student is ready, a teacher will appear. Be ready. Show up; step up, and stay up. Keep an open heart and an open mind. Learn at your own pace. Be good to yourself and enjoy the moment!

  • It feels like the decisions you make right now will dictate what you will be doing for the rest of your life and that is not so. A liberal arts education teaches you how to learn so you can continue to learn and grow for the rest of your life. There are seasons to life and you can redirect yourself to follow your passion at any time. I have been a non-profit fund raiser, a mom, a sign language interpreter and event planner. To every thing there is a season.
