JumpStart gets you ready to jump right in—you’ll be all settled into your new home at FLC before the semester even begins. Build relationships with other motivated students and FLC faculty and staff. Sharpen your skills in writing and research or math while boosting your study and time management strategies.

Connect with student support services, get involved in student activities and leadership opportunities, and get a head start in finding a study-life balance to stay happy and well. You'll still have plenty of time to explore Durango, get familiar with FLC, and hang out with your classmates. You’ll feel right at home here before you know it!
