As you explore our site, you will see that Lewis is a dynamic, mid-sized University with nearly 6,500 undergraduate and graduate students, offering small interactive classes, high quality academic programs, a very well-qualified faculty, impressive academic facilities, service-learning opportunities, NCAA Division II athletics, a wide range of campus activities and a wonderfully-diverse community.
