On March 21st, eleven FLC students traveled to Arizona to meet with the Grand Canyon Trust, a conservation group based in Flagstaff, Arizona. This was the beginning of Fort Lewis College’s second annual Alternative Spring Break. I had the good fortune of helping to organize the trip, and was accompanied by some of the best people I’ve ever had the good luck to meet. The students who signed up were passionate, soulful, and committed to the purpose of the trip: helping others, conservation, and having the time of our lives while doing so.

At the end of every semester, time moves twice as fast. There are tests, final projects and, of course, finals. The tasks that need to be accomplished are overwhelming if you think of them all at once. More than anything, this is a test of survival and you should prepare accordingly.
Whenever I thought of my look in college, I imagined myself bundled up in my favorite pair of boots, jacket, stylish scarf, trendy hat, and of course my thick rimmed glasses, reading high-brow literature, studying away in a coffee shop as the leaves begin to change. It sounded straight out of a Pinterest post about pumpkin spiced lattes. After living in Durango for three years now, my dreams of being a Pinterest model have come true.
The Intercollegiate Ethics Bowl is a debate-style tournament that takes place across the world and challenges students to take an ethical stance on a complex case against another team. At the beginning of each school year, fifteen cases are released online and teams are formed within interested colleges. The teams then have about three months to prepare for the regional tournament, the winners of which will go on to the national tournament.
