The Lewis and Clark Student Co-op is foremost a cooperatively managed student space that offers an opportunity for community building for its members and other students. It’s a venue for many events, including performances by student musicians and other artists, a monthly DIY bazaar where student-made crafts are bartered for, student organization meetings and other events. Started in 2004, the co-op is situated in a former classroom. The co-op has comfy couches and welcomes students to hang out, study and gather in its space. It also has sewing machines, arts and crafts space, a stage, public computer, piano, and zine library. About 12 volunteer coordinators run the space, and many other volunteers work short shifts behind the coffee and toast bar.
