Transferring to Lewis and Clark

Hi! I am a transfer student planning to transfer for the spring 2017 semester and Lewis and Clark is one of my top schools as of right now. I attended the University of Vermont for a year and decided that it felt much too large and had a hard time finding people who shared similar interests. Is there anyone who can speak to the inclusiveness/friendliness of students at Lewis and Clark? Will it be harder for me to meet people if I transfer for spring semester instead of fall semester?

I know my D felt very included there and she was something of a hermit during HS. I don’t know about transfers but they have such a thriving study abroad program that people are in and out by semester all the time.
