  • Some people say international students are in a bit of a bubble here, but I’d call it more of a solid base from which it is easier to form connections with the rest of the L&C community.

  • L&C has made me more confident in who I am and what I can accomplish. It has also made me more aware of all the change that must be made in our world to cultivate peace and justice.

  • From Portland you have access to so many different landscapes, and for someone like me who craves adventure, it’s super exciting. I’ve also never been to a place that takes its desserts so seriously, but I have had some of the best ice cream in my life here in Portland!
