What is it like to be a student at Fort Lewis College? In our "Day in the Life" series, we'll explore student life at FLC through the eyes of our students. In this episode, we meet Danielle, who has an event planning internship that mirrors her Business Administration – Tourism & Hospitality Management major. On this day, Danielle works out at the Student Life Center, goes to a Marketing class, has lunch downtown at The Balcony, and helps plan and execute an event called Chocolate Fantasia.
My summer started on the 5th of May in St. Louis at Washington University Medical School. The previous Friday, I jumped in my car after finals and drove east along I-70, visiting friends in Denver, and ending up in St. Louis on Sunday. I grew up in St. Louis and my two brothers live in St. Charles County. My father is buried in St. Charles. Even though my notion of home has changed, traveling back to Missouri still feels like I am coming home.
