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 »

Dorm life at the Fort
Wednesday, September 25, 2013

Dorm life at the Fort Starting college directly out of high school simply means a lot of changes in life. Moving to a completely different town where you know no one can be exciting and scary at the same time. I grew up and lived for 18 years in the same small town where everyone knew everyone. This made it very comfortable for me and I got used to always seeing someone I knew no matter where I was. Coming to college for the first time here at Fort Lewis, I knew no one.

Ke rata Africa thata The school year is beginning and I am excited to see my professors and classmates again. It is hard to believe that it has been almost a year since I saw them.

Let’s just say that there is nothing quite like the dining scene in Durango. For a small town, we have more restaurants than I have been able to sample in the three years that I have lived here, and I love it. It is common knowledge that Durango has more restaurants per capita than the city of San Francisco: that’s huge, especially when you are like me and love having a wide variety of places to eat when you dine out!

Physical education at the Fort

Because Fort Lewis College is a liberal arts school, all students are required to take a variety of classes in almost every subject. One of the classes needed in order to graduate is physical education. Each student needs one credit of PE, which means that you need to take at least one PE class while attending Fort Lewis. My schedule this semester was busy and I couldn’t seem to find much time between working and classes to add a PE class. I knew that I had to get it done in order for me to graduate next year so I sat down with my advisor and read through all of the PE classes available this semester. One really stood out to me: Camping and Backpacking.
