The mission of Lewis & Clark College is to know the traditions of the liberal arts, to test their boundaries through ongoing exploration, and to hand on to successive generations the tools and discoveries of this quest. By these means the College pursues the aims of all liberal learning: to seek knowledge for its own sake and to prepare for civic leadership.
The College carries out this mission through undergraduate programs in the arts and sciences and postgraduate programs in the closely related professions of education, counseling, and law. The College mounts these programs as both separately valid and mutually supportive enterprises. In all its endeavors it seeks to be a community of scholars who are alive to inquiry, open to diversity, and disciplined to work in an interdependent world.

The student population here at Lewis and Clark is extremely welcoming and friendly. I am a freshman here at LC and during my first week here, New Student Orientation week, I met a ton of new people all of whom were very helpful and nice. Aside from all the wonderful students, the campus is beautiful. Residing on top of a hill, Lewis and Clark is located in a quaint neighborhood full of lots of trees. On clear days I can see Mt. Hood on my walks to the academic side of campus. Also the drive up the hill from downtown Portland overlooks the Willamette river and surrounding areas, which is an amazing view.» Read More
The campus life is awesome. Lewis & Clark is a small college with a fairly tight-knit community. There is a place for everyone on this campus. The college makes is easy to have fun on campus without spending a lot of money: the activities range from dances and movies to concerts on campus from great artists and chances to get outdoors and go hiking and kayaking.» Read More
I really do like L&C although, the small school does get to me sometimes. I see the same people every single day! And there is not as much diversity as I would like. I am Hispanic and one of the very few! But I do like that almost everyone is very friendly!» Read More
