About This Campus
With a student population of about 3,800 and a faculty-to-student ratio of 1:14, Lewis-Clark State College is a closely-knit community with a picturesque campus and lots of personal interaction. There are a variety of student organizations, including a student radio station, student newspaper (The Pathfinder), student government, student clubs, and a variety of intramural sports. These join the ample recreation opportunities made available through our Student Activities Center and the Outdoor program. LC State has a close connection with the local Native American tribe, the Nez Perce, and offers a unique opportunity to take classes in Nez Perce language and culture at the college. Campus athletics include tennis, golf, volleyball, track & field, cross country, basketball, and baseball teams. LC State is also a member of the NAIA Division 1 Frontier Conference, and every May hosts the NAIA World Series right at our own Harris Field.
LC State is located in the Lewis-Clark valley, a scenic area with 35,000 residents that straddles the state border of Idaho and Washington. Temperatures are mild and outdoor recreation is abundant.
LC State is a small, friendly campus in a residential neighborhood. Many students live off-campus, though on-campus housing is also available. The area has a low cost of living. Most classes run MW or TTh with Friday being an off-day for many students. The campus is small and intimate, allowing students to really get to know each other and their professors. The town is walkable, but most students will feel much happier owning a car of their own as public transportation is very limited.
