ALUMNI WEEKEND ACCOMMODATIONS AND FAMILY PROGRAMS

Visit our housing, FAQ, and family pages for information about on- and off-campus housing, information on how to get to campus from the airport and train stations, and what activities we will be offering for families and kids.

WHERE CAN I FIND CLASSMATES?

Start with the Alumni Directory to connect and reconnect with classmates. Or, let your staff reunion coordinator know you’d like a list so you can contact friends to encourage them to attend the reunion.  

WE NEED YOUR HELP!

Lewis & Clark attempts to remain in contact with all alumni but unfortunately we have lost contact with some individuals. We rely on the lifelong friendships made at L&C to help us find alumni who have moved or changed names over the years, causing us to lose contact with them. Follow this link to see who from your class is missing. We would love contact information on these alumni.  

HOW CAN I CONTRIBUTE TO MY 65th REUNION GIFT? 

The Annual Fund Class Gift is a way for you and your classmates to give thanks for your L&C education - and help current students experience L&C like you did. Contributions of all sizes are welcome and appreciated. If you would like to join the Philanthropy Council or have any questions about giving to Lewis & Clark, please contact Julie Newsome, jnewsome@lclark.edu or 503-768-7963.
