Monday, Feb. 18, 2019, presented a special treat for juniors and seniors in the local area as the annual Discover Day was held in the Commons of the Math and Science building. Discover Day is an annual event held by Lewis and Clark Community College every President’s Day to give local high schoolers the opportunity to visit the campus. The event had many Lewis and Clark clubs and organizations set up to offer information to potential and current incoming students to allow them a more informed idea of what joining Lewis and Clark could offer their futures. The event ran from 11 a.m. until 1 p.m. to allow plenty of time for everyone to browse over the nicely decorated tables.
There were also a wide variety of activities for the attendees to participate in. Participation in photobooth pictures, spinning prize wheels, playing a jeopardy game, and collecting free candy were options for everyone present at the event. Many current students also interacted with everyone and enjoyed the festivities, and even making new connections with the various groups on campus. Free walking tacos and pasta had also been served to everyone in attendance for lunch, helped served by Student Activities Club workers. There were also informative tables offering scholarship information, housing information for Trailblazer Commons, and career opportunities to the students who visited the tables.
The event also offered the chance for the local high school students to take tours around the campus, as well as a tram vehicle driven by Professor Louise Jett to help transport people to their desired location. Primarily the tram transported people to and from the Discover Day event, as well as answering questions anybody had. The event had a very positive turnout and continued on without a hitch and concluded with many happy and better informed students.
