“I think the FLC environment is very important,” says John Wells (Business Administration, 1978). “I don’t think you can find a finer campus location aesthetically. I think it has an impact on students.”

He should know. After graduating from FLC, Wells chose to stick around Durango, and went on to found the real estate agency The Wells Group. Today he is president, owner, and broker, and employs around 60 people.

He also serves on the FLC Board of Trustees, helping to keep that Fort Lewis College impact on students going.

“From a personal and a company perspective,” Wells says, “this community is very good to us, and I want to give back to the college in support of that.”

FLC Theatre Lecturer Felicia Lansbury Meyer and Hollywood actors are spearheading a new theatre festival in Durango. Actors Dan Lauria and Wendie Malick, fans of Durango, inspired a small group of local performing arts lovers to create a space for playwrights to develop new plays with professional actors and directors. The new festival will utilize Fort Lewis College Theatre students, run workshops and mentorships, and eventually perform at FLC's Mainstage.

If you’re not already on social media, you can download the apps and get started in a matter of moments. But learning how to use social media effectively is much more difficult than searching the app store, and there’s no better way to learn than by doing. That’s why social media marketing students at FLC work in tandem with local companies to develop new marketing strategies and campaigns.

New tribal council member makes no promises – except to help

Alumna Cheryl Frost was recently elected to the Southern Ute Tribal Council with an ingenious – and unique – campaign platform: She ran on no platform at all. “I know the kind of person that I am,” Frost (English, ’95) says. “I don’t make promises to people that I can’t keep. I don’t make deals with people. I’m not going to put myself in an ethical quandary before I’m even elected. That’s why I chose no platform.”
