At Lewis & Clark, we rally around shared experience while celebrating and learning from difference.

Lewis & Clark students pride themselves on being individuals, but that does not diminish the feeling of community that you feel on our campus. You’ll have a chance to both live and study with your classmates, in a close environment that fosters mutual support and understanding.

The members of the Lewis & Clark community represent a wide array of ages, cultures, backgrounds, gender identities, nationalities, sexual orientations, races, ethnicities, and beliefs. We embrace them all.

Fun Times Ahead!

College life is definitely not all work and no play.

Lewis & Clark’s 110+ student-led clubs and organizations are one of the many ways you can kick back, relax, and have fun. Sure, student clubs and orgs also provide opportunities for leadership development, discussion, personal exploration, and intentional learning. But having fun is almost always part of the plan.

We have some clubs you’d expect and some you’d never imagine:

  • Fire dancing
  • Prison abolition
  • Cooking with chemistry

Heart of the City

Straddling the line between a big city and a small town, Portland offers attractions and opportunities for almost any interest. Being so close to downtown provides not only boundless entertainment options, but also internship and job opportunities.
