Lewis & Clark has one of the most beautiful campuses in the country, according to the Princeton Review. In national rankings released this week, Lewis & Clark took the number two spot in the list of most beautiful campuses. See the top-five list on the Today (NBC) website.

Lewis & Clark’s park-like campus is nestled among towering trees and trillium-lined creeks in a quiet residential neighborhood in Portland, Oregon.

Below, graduate students share some of their favorite places on campus: 

“My favorite place is actually on the way to campus. Taking the Terwilliger Blvd. exit off of I-5 south, you round the corner and there is a line of trees in front of the old Blockbuster. These trees turn the most beautiful shades of fire during the fall and every time I drive to school I am astounded by the beauty of nature.” —Paula Emerick, M.A. in Marriage, Couple, and Family Therapy ‘12

“The lawns that are between the reflecting pool and the flag pole.” —Aukeem Ballard, M.A.T. ‘12

“The outdoor pool, which I never had time to use!” —Michael Arrieta-Walden, M.A.T.’10
