LEAD Fly-In Program

Are you a LEAD-er in your school or community?
Do you want to EXPLORE your world?
Are your ACHIEVE-ments extraordinary?
Then it may be time for you to DISCOVER Lewis & Clark College!

Preference will be given to students from historically underrepresented backgrounds including students of color and first generation prospective college students.

What: At the College’s expense, meet current students and faculty, participate in leadership development activities, sit in on classes, spend two nights in a residence hall, try the food, have an admissions interview, visit Portland, and experience life at Lewis & Clark College firsthand.

Lewis & Clark College will cover the cost for transportation, lodging, and meals.

Where: Portland, Oregon

When: November 5th - 7th, 2017

Do you live within driving distance?

Yes, this is a “fly-in” program, but don’t let that stop you from applying! We will still work with you on transportation.
