Location

Lewis-Clark State College (LCSC) is located at Lewiston, Idaho, where two rivers (Clearwater and Snake), two cities (Lewiston and Clarkston), and two states (Idaho and Washington) come together. Lewiston has the benefit of being only a one-hour plane flight from Seattle, Washington. Located in a river valley, students will experience the turning of the seasons, autumn’s bright colors, mild winter snows on nearby mountains, beautiful spring flowers and summer’s warm sun.

The campus is located on Normal Hill, a charming residential area that was established in the 1800s. The local community includes Clarkston Washington which brings the population to about 55,000. In the Lewis Clark Valley students experience the friendliness and safety of small-town America. The valley also serves as the gateway to Hells Canyon, North America's deepest river gorge and is surrounded by national parks that showcase some of the west’s most stunning scenery and out-door adventures.
