Meet another one of our opinion editors.

Isabel entered the world of journalism through Portland State Vanguard, where she reported on student government, the Portland Black Lives Matter protests and international news as a contributor and editor. After transferring to Lewis & Clark, she joined The Log as a News editor. Now in Opinion, Isabel aims to provide a platform for students to hone their argumentative skills and write thought-provoking pieces that respect others’ perspectives and experiences.

Isabel is a French major who plans to pursue a master’s in linguistics and possibly run away to Paris. Do not ask how she got into French — it is a long story for the longue durée. In her free time she enjoys hanging out with friends, long-distance running, biking and exploring Portland.

Please welcome Leo Bernstein-Newman to the editorial board! We are unsure if he is a squirrel or human.

Leo, a rising senior, is a small woodland creature at Lewis & Clark. Though his species has yet to be identified, several Environmental Studies majors have been able to catch him using peanut butter and a humane mouse trap. Now in captivity, The Log has put Leo to use as the editor of the Features section. If you see him around campus do not hesitate to offer him a palmful of small berries and nuts to make him feel welcome.

Introducing our next editor, Paige Anderson!

This is Paige’s first year working with The Log and second year at Lewis & Clark. She is beyond excited to take on the role of News Editor and can’t wait to experience Log life. Paige is an English major and was Editor-in-Chief of her high school’s magazine and fell in love with student journalism. Paige can be found closely inspecting LC’s variety of moss, drinking black tea, or baking pies in her free time. She is always knitting a hat and recently learned to crochet, which has taken a toll on her bank account.

Lewis & Clark released new update photos of construction underway on Templeton Campus Center. To accommodate construction, power in the building will be unavailable on Aug. 6. According to LC's websites and estimates by Bremick Construction, the Trail Room is on track to open for the beginning of the fall semester. The Trail Room will offer extended hours for morning coffee, dinner and late night until 10 p.m. In order to accommodate these changes, Maggie's will be closed and reutilized according to an email sent to the community on July 22. Templeton Way is also currently blocked off to all car traffic, but paving is estimated to be partially complete in time for New Student Orientation and move-in.

Introducing Emma Ford.

Keeping in mind the common wisdom that opinions are crucial to a well-rounded liberal arts education, Emma is thrilled to join The Log as Opinions editor for her sophomore year. A lifelong writer and recent convert to student journalism, the opportunity to learn and grow among peers is invaluable.

Emma’s planned academic path is a major in International Affairs with a minor in Middle Eastern and North African Studies, followed by law school. Until then, she will stay busy with Speech and Debate, chairing the Honor Board and participating in the Philanthropy Society. Outside of school, Emma finds time for art, baking and a terrible shopping addiction.

Director of Campus Safety José Curiel is leaving LC to lead the campus safety program at Pacific Lutheran University. He left his position on May 30. Curiel started at LC as director in August 2021. Previously, Sky Grieg served in the role as an interim position. However, this is only one part of campus safety’s high turn over in recent years. Donna Henderson filled the role prior to Curiel for three years before resigning. Before that, Tim O’Dwyer filled the position until retiring in 2017. John Harvey served in an interim capacity twice during this turnover. To read more, click our bio for a story on Henderson’s departure.

“Though it is located in a strip mall just 10 minutes from campus, Zha Nan Taiwan Bistro feels a world away from Lewis & Clark. Soft Taiwanese pop plays over the speakers inside and brightly lit bottles of soda, sake and imported beer sit in neat rows on long, wooden shelves. The atmosphere is relaxed and choosing what to order from the lengthy menu is both the most exciting and difficult part of the experience.”

04/24/2020

"As the COVID-19 crisis continues to impact the Lewis & Clark community, Nadeen Ezzeddine ’22, a student at the Graduate School of Education and Counseling, wrote a letter asking administrators to reconsider financial burdens on students. The letter, signed by over 150 students and alumni, was sent to President Wim Wiewel and the deans of the three campuses on April 13.⁣

The letter’s signatories urge LC to reconsider the campus-wide tuition increases for the 2020-21 academic term, which trustees approved in Nov. 2019. Additionally, the letter asks administrators to discount tuition for all future terms that use remote learning, which include summer classes.⁣"

"After the college announced it would move all classes online to help slow the spread of COVID-19, students living on-campus were urged to go home if possible. About 150 students are still living in the apartments or Holmes Hall. According to Associate Director of the Office of International Students and Scholars (ISS) Bridget Flaherty, about a third of them are international students and U.S. third-culture kids (TCKs). ⁣

'(Director of ISS Brian White) and I did what we could to help some students return to their home countries, as well as work with the Overseas and Off-Campus Programs staff to get some of our students back to the U.S. from their programs when they couldn’t go home,' Flaherty said via email. 'Our current focus is figuring out who can go home when the semester ends, and who may still need support here over the summer.'"⁣

"Stories have trended across the internet on sites like Twitter and TikTok, showing students coordinating whole classes to prank a professor, changing zoom backgrounds to photos from 'The Office' and accidentally singing songs to their whole class when they thought they were on mute.

At Lewis & Clark, students are finding ways to entertain themselves during Zoom classes. In some cases, students have forgotten to turn off their cameras or microphones. Genevieve Basile ’23 was one of these students.

'I had started my five step Indian head/scalp massage when I thought my camera was off,” Basile said. “I don’t really mind that they saw. I just thought it was funny and then turned off the camera.'"
