For many of us, a college internship helped forge the direction we would follow in our professional careers. Six Fort Lewis College students received such inspiration this summer through the inaugural Four Corners Federal Lands Internship Program.
Their outdoor classrooms ranged from archaeological sites to alpine meadows and high mountains. Although similar internships have been available since 2008, a recent agreement between federal land agencies and local nonprofits now offers new opportunities.

Some might think that we already know pretty much all there is to know about the past, especially the history of this country. Assistant Professor of Anthropology Dr. Kelly Jenks, however, always felt that there was more to history than what she was taught growing up. From an early age, the 2014-15 Fort Lewis College New Faculty Teaching Award winner felt the need to study the past, particularly that of the Southwest, in order to help others learn about their heritage and gain a new and deeper perspective on the world.

Students in the 2013 Fort Lewis College Archaeological Field School didn't have to travel far to make discoveries about the Four Corners region's rich cultural history. In fact, they could see their area of exploration from campus. Fourteen students spent five weeks on the shore of Durango's Lake Nighthorse, only two miles from the FLC campus, learning about archaeological field methods and gaining practical experience in cultural resource management (CRM) – the management of cultural resources in compliance with federal, state, and local laws.

Current can be a good thing – especially when you're traveling more than 400 miles and descending some 10,000 feet down your favorite rivers.
That's the journey documented in The Current, a feature-length film shot and produced by two FLC students who wanted to find out what rivers mean to them, while at the same time seeing for themselves the condition of two of their favorite rivers – the Animas River, which flows past Fort Lewis College, and the San Juan River downstream of its confluence with the Animas.
