Services and Benefits
Lifetime membership to the Lewis & Clark Graduate School Alumni Association is automatic upon graduation. There are no dues to pay or forms to fill out, but there are many benefits (see below). If you have questions or comments please contact Alumni Relations at firstname.lastname@example.org, 503-768-6049.
Alumni Association ID Card: Alumni are issued an Alumni Association ID card upon graduation. This card allows access to athletic facilities, the library, and certain events. It also gives a 10% discount at the College Bookstore. Contact the Alumni Office at 503-768-6049 or email@example.com to get your alumni card.
Athletic Facilities: There is no charge for alumni to use the Pamplin Sports Center, Zehntbauer Pavillion, the outdoor pool, track or tennis courts during recreational hours, with an Alumni Association ID card. Dependents of alumni may use sports facilities when accompanied by an alumnus/a and with an alumni dependent ID card. Dependent ID cards are $20 for each dependent, and must be purchased by alumni at the Athletic Office in Pamplin.
Bookstore: Alumni receive a 10% discount on many items at the College Bookstore, including graduate school t-shirts and sweatshirts. Be sure to bring your Alumni Association ID card!

Don’t forget to email firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know what is happening in your life so we can include you in the Class Notes section!
Contacting Classmates: Alumni Relations provides assistance in locating classmates. Alumni data is kept confidential, but we will forward letters or contact alumni on your behalf. Be sure to let us know whenever you change your address, phone number, and/or email address so that we can keep in touch with you, and help other alumni connect with you. Using your Lewis & Clark Lifetime Email Address will also help!
Continuing Education Tuition Discount: Alumni of the Graduate School receive a 20% discount on tuition for non-credit, on-campus continuing education classes. (This cannot be combined with a team discount.) To receive this benefit, be sure to complete the alumni information section on your continuing education registration form.
Democracy & Education: Democracy & Education is an online journal about the classroom; it focuses on sustaining and developing democratic teaching practices that value the voices of students and teachers. Since 2005, the journal has been published by the Graduate School. Subscriptions are free: Sign up at http://democracyeducationjournal.org/home/announcements.html.
Diploma Replacement: Need to replace your diploma? Contact the Registrar’s Office.
Events: Free or reduced admission is available for many athletic and cultural events, symposia, and lectures on campus. See the events calendar for schedules or more information.
Hotels: Lewis & Clark alumni receive a special rate at certain lodgings within a 10- to 15-minute drive of L&C.
Lifetime Forwarding Email Account: Imagine never again having to email everyone you know that your email address has changed. Sound too good to be true? Well, it’s not! L&C offers alumni a free email forwarding address that never changes and that you can use forever. Sign up now for a lifetime forwarding email account.
Library: Alumni retain borrowing privileges at the Aubrey Watzek Library (excluding inter-library loan system, Summit, remote access to research databases and the Boley Law Library). Alumni are always welcome to come back to Watzek and make use of our computers and print resources. Read more about alumni use of the library here.
Loan Counseling: Lewis & Clark’s Office of Financial Aid has partnered with SALT, an online resource that provides free student loan counseling and expert financial advice for alumni. Users can collate their loans on SALT’s “dashboard” to compare repayment strategies, as well as find financial calculators, educational tools, and an interactive financial planning curriculum.
Regional Graduate School Alumni Chapters: We are in the process of establishing regional alumni chapters. If you are interested, please email us at email@example.com.
Transcripts: Transcripts can be requested by fax, in person, or via U.S. mail. By federal law, transcripts cannot be ordered electronically because a signature is needed. More information can be found through the Graduate Registrar’s Office.
Update Your Info: Be sure to keep your contact information current!
Volunteer: Alumni can be involved in the life of the Graduate School in many ways. Please let us know if you would like to learn more about becoming more active!
