Objects From Home

Students bring a variety of things with them to the residence halls to remind them of home. During the 2013 New Student Orientation, we asked students what they had brought from home and why. See what they had to share.

Student Employment Options

Students interested in finding a job should check out the online student job database. Most positions on campus are open only to students who have either a Federal Work-Study (FWS) award or a Lewis & Clark Work-Study (LCWS) award. However, other on-campus as well as off-campus positions are available as well.

Summer Student Research

Emma Cook ’15 and Tate Sellers ’16 have been working with Assistant Professor of Psychology Todd Watson to study interaction between cognitive inhibition and high calorie foods.
