Alumni & Parent Programs

Bring the whole family!

Alumni Weekend: June 20-23, 2019

Bring your family to Alumni Weekend!

In addition to experiencing the excitement of meeting your college friends and attending events, your family will have a great time enjoying many activities for all ages.

With its acres of green lawns and numerous sports facilities at your disposal, campus is an event in and of itself, but we also have activities for all ages to enjoy during Saturday evening keynote activities.

Special Pricing

Children are welcome to events and activities. We have reduced rates for children ages 3 to 10 at some events. If you have an infant or child under 3 who does not require a meal or seat, please feel free to bring them without registering/paying.

Family-Friendly Activities and Events

Teenagers might enjoy many of the Pioneer College sessions on Friday and Saturday, with faculty and alumni throughout the weekend, and everybody is welcome on campus and building tours. Kids are welcome at most events, especially the class brunches in Fields, the Garden Party and the Northwest Salmon Bake and BBQ, followed by s’mores! The only events that might not be the best for kids are the evening receptions and dinners and those events, like the On Campus Pub Crawl, involving alcohol. 

On-Campus Housing

Staying on campus is a great idea for families - you’ll always be close by if your children get tired, and close to the festivities when you want. Stay in Holmes Hall and be in the center of the action, or in the apartments, or Odell Hall which we encourage for anybody who is interested in a quiet area and increased privacy. 

You can contact your staff reunion coordinator to see if other classmates are bringing children, and coordinate with them.

Please note: pricing for on-campus housing is really per twin bed. If somebody is not planning to use a bed (a small child, for example), it’s fine to not register them. However, room keys and building access cards will only be issued per paying resident.

The fine print: Lewis & Clark College residence halls are not designed for young children. The College is not aware of any condition that is unsafe for young children, but expects you as parents to examine your quarters as you would in any other accommodations to make sure that they are safe for your child or children. We very much look forward to you staying with us. If you notice anything in your room that concerns you, please let us know right away and we will find a remedy. You understand that by accepting accommodations at one of the Lewis & Clark residence halls you are accepting responsibility for your safety and well being and that of your children, and agree to hold Lewis & Clark, its employees, officers, trustees and agents harmless for any injury to person or damage to property you or your child may suffer, unless caused by the negligence or intentional conduct of Lewis & Clark or an employee or agent of Lewis & Clark.

Important Note

Lewis & Clark does not own any equipment or materials for children such as high chairs, cribs, and diapers. Please make sure you plan out your needs and contact us if you have questions at or 503.768.7950
