 Why you chose Lewis & Clark: I always thought that I wanted to attend a huge university with tens of thousands of students and giant lecture halls. Then I visited Lewis & Clark and fell in love. The campus was absolutely gorgeous, the people were incredibly kind, and it was obvious the professors cared about their students and were passionate about what they were teaching. I left my campus visit knowing that L&C was the right fit for me.
