About Lewis & Clark College

Lewis & Clark College, a private liberal arts college in Portland, Oregon, was founded in 1867 as Albany Collegiate Institute by a group of Presbyterian pioneers in the Willamette Valley town of Albany 46 miles south of Portland. The College has always been coeducational, from the first class, which graduated in 1873. By 1938 enrollment in Portland had outgrown that on the original campus, and all operations were moved to Portland. In 1942 the College trustees acquired the Lloyd Frank (of the historic Portland department store Meier & Frank) "Fir Acres" estate in southwest Portland, and adopted the name Lewis & Clark College as a "symbol of the pioneering spirit that had made and maintained the College. Today, the three schools of the College and their supporting offices occupy a campus of 137 acres (554,000 m²), centered on the Frank estate on Palatine Hill in Southwest Portland.

Senior Research and Thesis, Portland, OR - May 20, 2014
My senior year at Lewis & Clark, I worked on a thesis that was mainly computational. I was able to dedicate 2-3 hours of work per day and worked on it in addition to my classes. The hardest and most enjoyable part of the job was coming up with a creative way to construct the different geometric models in a program.
