Lewis & Clark College Reviews
Lewis & Clark College provides an excellent liberal arts education to students who are motivated in their field. The majority of the professors are excellent and dedicated to furthering the learning of their students. There are small classrooms with lots of discussion and practical application of learning. There are also excellent resources through the Student Academic Affairs Board, clubs and school programs such as College Outdoors. Some students are not very motivated, but for those willing to put their effort into their education you get a lot back.
Lewis and Clark was a wonderful school! I transferred at the age of 21 and was offered almost my entire tuition--incredibly generous package. The campus is beautiful, small, and incredibly supportive. I had teachers from all over the world, and their classes and instructors opened my eyes to a much larger world around me. My BA in English allowed me to continue my education and become a high school English teacher--which has been incredible! Now, I am seeking a MA in Curriculum and Instruction, so I can pursue a career abroad, developing curriculum for international students. At 45, I am ready for the second chapter of my life, and LC gave me the desire to help others and to seek adventure!
This degree was holistic, it was a liberal arts degree. I was exposed to different classes than I may have chosen to take in another school for my General education requirements. This was a nice way to supplement my focused learning. I wish there had been different required Authors for those Gen. Ed classes, but that may be requirements from a board that professors were required to meet.
Great school with a sense of community. Top-notch professors and programs with smaller class sizes.
LC is incredibly photogenic and is a great spot for 1:1 teaching. Having transferred from a large state school, I appreciated that aspect of the college tremendously and felt valued and encouraged to advocate for my education in the classroom. That said, the school is also isolated and getting on/off campus is difficult. This can make being on the hill alienating and give the feeling of being trapped. Definitely take a closer look at how administration is dealing with the demands of the Black Student Union and the protests that are happening in the wake of an absent president (the weeks of November 2015) before considering applying here. Safety, both as a black student and non-black poc students is suspect. Mental health, the availability of counselors, and the process of believing survivors of sexual assault should also be investigated.
Quality professors & education. Environmentally and social-consciousness-focused student body. A lot of student bands, and a generally active student body.
Engaged smart students. Caring staff. Overlook the stereotypes and you will find your niche
Lewis & Clark provided a very special college experience. It's a small school with a beautiful campus. My professors and peers were intelligent, curious, thoughtful people, and I learned a lot about myself over my 4 years there. Overall, I wouldn't trade my experience there for any university experience.
Lewis & Clark is a great school. Very progressive, focused on service and community engagement, while still providing a high quality education.
Wonderful experience at LC. Small classes, great professors, thoughtful students. If you can afford the high cost of attending a small, private liberal arts college, I highly recommend Lewis & Clark.
