wat. (eneeds) wrote in lc_lj,


hey you guys.

first of all, i am not so good with the internet and i accidentally clicked something about monitering this community? i don't know. whoever's in charge of this place is probably pissed. feel free to fix that for me.

so today i got into lewis and clark, which rules. i know that you probably don't like it when people are like I AM INTERESTED IN AVIATION; PLEASE TELL ME WHAT IT IS LIKE TO STUDY FLIGHT AT LEWIS AND CLARK, but i have a similar question.

i want to study english, specifically creative writing. i know lewis and clark has a writing concentration within the major--can anyone tell me what that's like/how good it is?

also, how intellectually motivated are the students? and how hard does portland rule? because i bet it rules really hard, but i've never been.

i'm an english major and i wanted to do a lot of writing at lewis & clark, but i was kind-of disappointed. you basically have

intro to poetry
intro to the short story (not much creative writing involved)
non-fiction writing
poetry writing (300 level)
poetry writing (400 level)
fiction writing (300 level)
fiction writing (400 level)

and i believe that's it. i'm not sure how much better you could do, though, if you were to go to a different school. you'd have to compare. the whole creative writing thing that's listed on the site is a mirage.. they just mean "you can take classes having to do with writing." but i can already see myself having a perfect amount of english classes to take to get my degree, so it ends up being cool.

intellectually motivated... i'd say "enough." personally, i didn't want to be in an environment that was so academic it was stifling. i was pleased that the people here are laidback and like to procrastinate. they're like me, basically. but still hard-working people (the majority anyway) who like to learn.

and yes portland rocks hardcore.
