FALL 2021 New Student Orientation

Welcome to FLC, Skyhawks! Orientation is all about fostering school spirit and welcoming you and your family to the Fort Lewis College community. Orientation programming will provide you with important information and engaging experiences, including campus tours, strategies for a successful transition to FLC, academic success tips, an introduction to co-curricular opportunities on campus, and much more.

New students will be assigned to one of the two Orientation sessions listed below based on their assigned move-in date. A detailed Orientation schedule will be available for both sessions on July 1, 2021.

  • If you are assigned to move in to your residence hall on Wednesday, August 25, you are required to attend this Orientation session (Thursday, August 26 from 9 a.m. - 5 p.m.).
  • You are also required to attend the all-day Campus Welcome event on Saturday, August 28 from 9 a.m. - 5 p.m.

Pre-Campus Academy

Pre-Campus Academy is an online course that you'll be required to take before you arrive on campus. The course will be available via Canvas, which is our online course management system. We will send an email invitation to your FLC email address when Pre-Campus Academy opens on August 2, 2021.

 


Family Orientation

Given the uncertainties surrounding COVID-19, we don't yet know whether it will be possible for us to host our usual in-person Family Orientation here on campus. We will update this page with more information when it is available. If we are able to move forward with Family Orientation, we will publish the program schedule here on July 1.
