Why Lewis & Clark?: "What distinguished L&C, and ultimately lead to my decision, is Coach Keith, the area and the feel I got from being on campus and interacting with students and professors. I knew that I would be pushed academically and athletically, as well as be surrounded by globally aware and caring students in an area with diverse opportunities."
