Student & Graduate Reviews

Degree: Law & Criminal Justice
Graduation Year: 2020

The school and community are awesome at Lewis and Clark. The school offers so much help to students as well as amenities. Library use 24/7, a beautiful campus surrounded by nature, professors are all highly intelligent people, and the support system is phenomenal. Law school can be very difficult and stressful. One may have doubts, but the school keeps its students motivated and sets every student up for success. I love this school and I am so blessed to be a part of this beautiful college.

When thinking about whether a school is a good fit for me or not, I am initially apt to consider my learning style, and the type of educational approach that a particular college/university takes. I am drawn to colleges that have smaller class sizes, that provide intimate instruction, allowing for more one on one attention between teacher and student. I also value a more progressive community that is open to a variety of learning styles, along with cultural competence. For example, not having test taking being the main administering agent in determining grades, but instead assigning group projects, presentations, papers, and in class assignments. In choosing to attend Lewis and Clark College in Portland, OR, I knew that I would be gaining this attributes, as it's a small private college that proves to be highly liberal in comparison to many other universities. The one predicament that many people have with small private college is the expense, and I myself have grappled with this in making my initial decision to attend Lewis and Clark. I initially chose to begin my masters degree at the University of Vermont, which is a larger state university in Burlington, VT. Although I knew that it would be much cheaper for me to attend, I found myself feeling lost in the crowd, and wasn't building the type of community and support system that I was seeking in my graduate education; especially being away from family and friends. I asked myself, what would help me to feel more fulfilled? I quickly realized that the program I was in wasn't catering to my age range , and it proved to be a university that was predominately favored for undergraduate students. Lastly, it was extremely difficult to obtain an on campus job, which would have been a solution to pay for tuition. It was one of the best decisions I have ever made to transfer and complete my degree at Lewis and Clark College. I have been able to find the community I'm seeking , experience more of a progressive atmosphere, receive the attention necessary for my standard of learning, and bask in the beautiful evergreens of the pacific northwest; quite the utopia of a campus with hiking trails and mountain views. The classes prove to be engaging, authentic, and challenging, as well as appropriate for my chosen major. The professors I have met thus far have been passionate and invested in their area of expertise, sincerely wanting the students to succeed. I would recommend attending Lewis and Clark college for these reasons, and if you have the willingness to take out student loans, because lets face it--it's the risk most students have to take, especially if they want to attend a college that's a wonderful fit for them.

Degree: Counseling Psychology
Graduation Year: 2019

Lewis and Clark Counseling program provides in depth and experiential instruction that is CACREP certified and therefore very supportive of the process towards LPC licensure. The faculty and staff are compassionate, qualified and foster a community environment. With the exception of lacking racial diversity within the student population, the program is well-suited for those seeking a deeper dive into the realm of social justice integration into their career and serving diverse populations.

Degree: Education
Graduation Year: 2010

Lewis and Clark's graduate school of ED is a small and intimate environment in which you can get your MAT. Professors/Staff are knowledgeable and get to know students in the graduate program well. Unlike many other MAT programs, LC provides you with a one year internship at one school, and one class. This lets you experience a full year beginning to end during your practicum. As cohorts are fairly small you get to know your classmates well and gain friendships in your future field that will last well beyond your time at LC. The campus is also beautiful.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2018

Lewis and Clark State College (LCSC) Is offered at a off site location located at North Idaho College Campus in CDA. We have some dis advantages as students not being on a main campus. This is my first year as a junior, all my teachers are new to LCSC social work program, so we are all trying to find balance and a common ground.

Lewis & Clark College is a great school! It was a perfect fit for me, but that doesn't mean it was a 100% perfect. Loved my time there and don't regret it.

Graduation Year: 2016

There are far more pros to attending Lewis and Clark for graduate school than cons. The teachers on the graduate campus show a true interest in each student and how they are doing not only in the program but in their personal life. They are available to talk when you need it and will often use office hours or stay late after class to explain topics you want to know more about or are struggling with the materials. The campus is beautiful and has walking trails throughout both the undergrad and graduate schools. The only real cons that I have encountered is if your running late for class it's very hard to find parking.

Being a first year graduate student at Lewis and Clark has been amazing. The faculty truly treat each student with respect and as a future counselor. I has a family crisis and my teachers were willing to allow me to take care of business and even turn in my papers a week later. Overall my experience here has been amazing.

Degree: Elementary Education
Graduation Year: 2015

Pros are that I am learning through a social justice lens and that my teachers are all passionate, kind, supportive people. Cons are that the public transportation is horrible at night, and that it is so intensive that you cannot work at the same time. It is also very, very expensive. Also, sometimes I am unable to express opinions if they are "too radical", even though this school is known to be left leaning.

LCSC or Lewis Clark State College was my undergrad school - they do not offer graduate studies. The faculty are top notch, but there is a lot of room for improvement for all other areas.
