I get asked the same question every time I tell people I am graduating in December: “What are your plans after college?” Until about 2 weeks ago, I literally had not a clue and it scared me half to death. Wait, graduation means I actually have to be in the real world? I have to stop using ‘being in college’ as an excuse to be broke and to not work all that much. I no longer want to call my parents asking them for money so I can go out of town for the weekend – it’s now my responsibility. Growing up has never seemed so hard, even though all I have ever wanted to do was grow up and be able to do what I want.

When I started at Fort Lewis College, I had no idea what I wanted to do. I was always getting asked the same question over and over by everyone I met: what’s your major? There are so many different choices when you arrive: majors, minors, clubs, teams, and exciting things to choose from. I had no idea where to start. So, I went with what I was always told I excelled in: writing.

Fort Lewis College has a passion for sustainability. From the time I took my first tour of Fort Lewis, more than four years ago, I have been impressed by how much students and teachers care about sustainability. I was lucky enough to qualify for a work-study position so I immediately went to the Environmental Center and applied for a job. I was so happy to get a position on the local food team where I got to both learn about the local food movement in Durango and do my part to promote local food.

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.

Fort Lewis is not just there to provide you with an education, but to provide you with the means to succeed in your post collegiate career. In my case, I hit a cornerstone in college where this was starkly apparent.
In the fall semester of my junior year I was taking a variety of business and art classes to chip away at my art and business double major. One of these classes was Operations Management which deals with higher level statistics and how they more directly apply to businesses.
