Locey Named New Football Coach

In December, Jay Locey was named Lewis & Clark’s new head football coach. Locey most recently served as the chief of staff for Oregon State University’s football program. Previously, he coached at Linfield College, where he led teams to an 84-18 overall record, six Division III play-offs, and the 2004 NCAA Division III National Championship. Meet Locey on Saturday, February 21, in an on-campus Pioneer Football Meet and Greet.

Developing Career Skills and Exploring Jobs 

This January, students participated in two of the Career Development Center’s signature programs: Get That Job! and Destination: Portland. Participants learned how to conduct a focused search, research industries and employers, develop a professional presence on social media, and build a network. They also explored the Portland job market through site visits to local employers. Learn more about upcoming career events
