Reopening campus for visits

orientation day at FLC

Great news! Starting June 29, 2020, we are re-opening for campus visits! We understand that COVID-19 may make you feel uneasy about travel and campus visits, but here in the FLC Admission Office, we have a plan to ensure that you and your family stay healthy during your visit.

Keeping you healthy

Your health and the health of our campus community are our top priority. To mitigate any risks during your visit:

  • We ask that no one visit campus if they currently have COVID-19, if they have a fever, if they have had a fever within the last 3 days, and/or if they are feeling sick. If you are not feeling well, we will be more than happy to re-schedule your visit!
  • All visitors and FLC employees must wear a mask while on campus. Don’t have one? No problem! We will provide you with a mask, which you can take home with you at the end of your visit.
  • Visits are planned so that we can always maintain proper physical distancing (6 ft. apart).
  • We sanitize frequently-touched surfaces often.
  • Hand sanitizer dispensers are located throughout campus, including in the Admission Office.

Individual, personalized campus visits

When you come for your visit, it will just be you, your family, and a member of our staff there to be your guide. We don’t want anyone to end up in a packed room with a crowd of other visitors, so we aren’t doing any big group visits right now.

Small groups & open spaces

We ask that visitors limit their group to 5 people. To request special accommodations for a group of more than 5, please email visit@fortlewis.edu. On the tour, we’ll spend as much time outside as possible, and what better place to be outside than on our mesa-top campus with a spectacular view!

Weekday & weekend options

Monday - Friday

Campus visits for you and your family are available Monday through Friday. You’ll explore campus, and have the opportunity to get your questions answered about anything from scholarships to student life. You may also request to meet with faculty, if you’d like to learn more about a specific department.

Select weekends

If weekdays don’t work for you, we’re scheduling Open House events on weekends. Each event features an academic department fair, presentations from Admission and Financial Aid staff, a campus tour, and an opportunity to interact with current students. We’re limiting attendance at our Open House events, which include breakout sessions with small groups, and physical distancing built into every aspect of the schedule.

 

Online options

Not ready to travel just yet? We’ll bring FLC to you. We have several online options to help you learn more about FLC from the comfort of your home. You can join us for one of our Virtual Visits, connect one-on-one with an Admission counselor, or attend an Online Open House.
