  • 3:30pm: Boren Awards Info Session
    The Boren Awards offer generous scholarships to US students studying languages and cultures of importance to US national security. Michael Saffle, a representative for the Boren Awards, will be at Lewis & Clark on Wednesday October 31, 3:30PM in Miller 209 to present further information about their programs and answer questions about them. 
    If you are planning to study abroad in the next couple of years, the Boren Scholarship is a wonderful way to help cover the costs of the program. Please come to this event to learn more about it. Also, please share this information with others who you think may be interested in learning more about the Boren Awards programs.

Studying abroad on one of our language intensive programs is another great way to further your your proficiency and become immersed in both the language and culture of the host country. 

  • The fourth annual student-run symposium, History and Movement: Transition in the Middle East, explores the development of modern and historical discourse through the lens of transition.
