My personal journey
Thursday, October 24, 2013

My personal journey As a high school student from California, the idea that I’d end up attending a small college in the mountains seemed, for lack of a better word, insane. The plan was to attend a University of California school; I couldn’t have possibly foreseen the transformation that was soon to morph the very essence of who I am. I remember stumbling upon Fort Lewis College on the internet—the school seemed beautiful and friendly but a bit secluded and small, especially considering it wasn’t much larger than my high school.

Service with the Environmental Center

One of the most rewarding experiences for me here at Fort Lewis College has been getting involved with the Environmental Center on campus.  As a freshman, I was very nervous about making new friends and finding a place where I could connect with like- minded students.  Yet the moment I walked through the doors and into the sunlit cluster of bulletin boards, plants and comfy chairs, I felt instantly at home.

Knowing I have found the place for me
Friday, September 27, 2013

Knowing I have found the place for me Everyone knows that common expression that time flies, and as I begin my fourth and final year at Fort Lewis College, this saying could not be more apparent. At the expense of sounding cliché, it seems like just yesterday that I was moving into my new dorm in Animas Hall. For the first time, I was seeing how my life was about to take off. But, looking back, I did not really know how phenomenal my experiences were going to be and how Durango was going to feel like my new home. Read the rest of entry »
