When students learn, everyone benefits. And at Fort Lewis College, those benefits can be found every Thursday from spring to fall under the Clocktower in the center of campus. That's when students who have been studying and practicing organic growing techniques bring the fruits -- and vegetables and meats -- of their labor to campus for sale at the open-air Old Fort Farm Stand.
The foods are grown and raised at the Old Fort, the site of Fort Lewis College before it moved to Durango in 1956. The property 15 miles west of Durango was home to the original military Fort Lewis and an Indian boarding school, before becoming state property and the home of the school that eventually grew into Fort Lewis College.

These two accomplishments have helped lead the Biology program to new heights and helped one of the most popular majors at FLC continue to grow.

DURANGO (19 October 2011) - Increased admission standards, along with efforts to secure funding and increase investment in academic programs, seem to be making a difference in helping Fort Lewis College’s students succeed in school. The retention rate among every ethnic group represented on campus either increased or remained steady from 2006 (beginning of tougher admission standards) to 2009 (latest published data).
