Isabella Boughalem ’22 (she/her)
Minor: French Studies
Hometown: Brooklyn, NY
3 fun facts: I grew up half in Brooklyn, NY with my mom and half in Lexington, KY with my dad. I went to a performing arts high school in NYC where I studied classical vocal music. My first language was French.
Favorite spots on campus and in Portland? The Feminist Student Union space is one of my favorite places on campus as one of the chairs of the FSU, I am a bit biased. As an English major, off-campus I have spent a good amount of time in bookstores around Portland - check out Wallace Books, Revolutions Bookshop, and Powell’s on Hawthorne.
Jaelen Hodges ’23 (she/her)
Hometown: Eugene, OR
3 fun facts? I am a coxswain for the LC crew team, so I get to sit in the front of the boat and tell people what to do. I can also solve a Rubik’s cube in under a minute and I collect souvenir pennies.
Favorite spot in Portland? My favorite spot in Portland is on the Willamette River near the top of Ross Island. During morning crew practices you can see the sunrise reflect off of the buildings downtown and it’s so beautiful. There is nothing more relaxing than the sound of the water moving underneath you and we even get to see wildlife like otters, sea lions, herons, and eagles.
Nate Peterson ’22 (he/him)
Minor: Religious Studies
Hometown: Richmond, CA
What are you involved in at LC?: I am a student assistant coach for the men’s basketball team at LC. I have also been involved with the LC chess club and philosophy club.
What’s your favorite place on campus and in Portland? My favorite spot on campus is the carriage turnaround by the bridge to the academic side campus. It’s a great spot to pass through on your way to the academic side campus and it’s a shady area to sit on sunny days. My favorite place in Portland is the Japanese Garden in Washington Park. It has amazing views and is a great place to sit with friends on the weekends.
