Amanda Fisher, Public Health, '22

"My journey to Fort Lewis College was non-traditional, having spent more than two decades out of academia. The TRIO STEM3 program helped me transition back to being a student. The STEM3 program allowed me to find a community on campus and access all the resources they offer. The one-on-one tutoring and access to the computer lab, to list a few resources the program offers, helped me achieve a degree in Public Health. Their support throughout my time at FLC also helped me be accepted into a PharmD graduate program."
