Welcome to the nest, Skyhawks!

Congratulations on being admitted to Fort Lewis College! We are excited you're joining our Skyhawk family. Here are a couple to-do items you need to check off before arriving on campus:

Join a PEAK Experience

Students welcome you

PEAK Experiences are optional programs right before Orientation that help you find a core group of friends, build your academic and leadership skills, play outside, and get insider tips on college life.

You can choose from four different PEAK Experiences, Native Skyways to Success, Float the San Juan, JumpStart,  and Summit the San Juans. Regardless of the one you pick, they all help you prepare for your new college life at FLC.



See FLC in person



It's one thing to look at pictures and read descriptions, and it's another to see the La Plata Mountains over campus, walk into downtown Durango, or stroll the residence and department halls. Check out your new town!

Connect on socials






See what your fellow Skyhawks are up to and the activities on campus before your first semester starts. You can find us on all the big socials, including Instagram, Facebook, and YouTube.

Orient yourself






Get your FLC journey off to a good start at Orientation. Orientation events support a smooth transition to your new life as a Skyhawk at FLC.

Meet the Skyhawk Welcome Team!

We help new students connect with student organizations, FLC sports teams, and campus and local events.
