1000 miles to Durango

I have always loved the mountains. That’s why when I found Fort Lewis College during my junior year of college, I didn’t hesitate at the opportunity to transfer here. When I decided to move here, I sort of knew one person that I had gone to high school with in St. Louis four years before. Other than that, I didn’t know anyone in the town. I couldn’t have imagined how easy it was going to be to make new friends as a transfer student.

Great classes, nice people, mountains and bluegrass

I will never stop loving Fridays. Since I moved to Durango there has been an amazing freedom that I feel every Friday. Yesterday my Friday started as most days do: woke up early, made tea, listened to some bluegrass, and sat on my front porch getting some early morning Durango fresh air and sunshine. After breakfast and a chat with my roommates, I walked a few minutes to the bus stop where I waited with a few friends who live near by.

In the late spring, I got a realization that the small town feel was for me, and a friend encouraged me to go to Fort Lewis, because she loved it so much here.

Life-changing opportunities!

Fort Lewis College is the place to experience truly life-changing opportunities.  Just in my senior year, I was afforded two once-in-a-lifetime opportunities.  First, I was the only student selected to testify on a congressional level in support of a bill that would benefit the college if it passes.  It was an amazing experience and allowed me make connections with legislators including an FLC alumnus who now works for the Obama Administration.

Perfect weekend in Durango

Perfect weekend in Durango

To tell you the truth, I cannot remember a weekend in Durango that was not perfect; blue skies mixed with three-hundred days of sunshine makes Durango ‘paradise’ for outdoor enthusiasts. I have experienced my version of the perfect weekend several times.

My perfect weekend starts out by waking up on Saturday morning and sipping on a hot cup of coffee. During that time I am thinking about what I need to pack for the adventure I have planned during the week.
