FLC campus gets even greener this summer

Going green has been a way of life at Fort Lewis College for a long time -- it's just comes naturally when you live in a place as beautiful and inspiring as southwestern Colorado. And this summer, the FLC campus has gotten even greener, with several energy- and money-saving projects underway.

Fort Lewis College has been actively improving its sustainability since becoming a charter signatory of the American College and University Presidents Climate Commitment, in 2007. Since then, the colleges' Sustainability Action Plan has led to the construction of "green" buildings, introducing local foods into dining facilities, expanding on-campus recycling, prioritizing recycled products in purchasing, upgrading irrigation efficiency, the installation of a new composter for on-campus dining, and more.

Academic athletes dominate studies as well as sports

In May, when Fort Lewis College first baseman Stephanie Janes was named to the Capital One Academic All-America second team for NCAA Division II, it was a crowning academic achievement for Skyhawk athletes.

Janes becomes the eighth student-athlete in Fort Lewis College history to be recognized on an Academic All-America team -- and the fourth this season alone. And that achievement is just the latest in a run of Skyhawk academic excellence.

Fulbright scholars as professors give students an educational edge

Fort Lewis College Associate Professor of Economics Robert Sonora is spending part of his summer working in Croatia thanks to the Fulbright International Exchange Program. It’s a win-win-win for the people of Croatia, Sonora, and for the future FLC students that find themselves in one of Sonora’s classes.

To earn a Fulbright scholarship is one of the highest academic honors that a faculty member or student can achieve. Only the best of the best are chosen. The experiences and knowledge gained by living and working beyond the borders of the United States through the program can be life-changing, and not just for the Fulbright participants themselves.
