PORTLAND, Ore. – The Lewis & Clark athletic department will be celebrating Division III week, April 8th to April 14th, with a number of events put on by the Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC).
Division III week was started last year to celebrate the “unique philosophy that equally values academics, athletics and student-athletes’ involvement in a full and rich campus life,” according to NCAA.org.
