Eight adventurous Outdoor Pursuits members had the spring break of a lifetime – they headed to Panama for a multi-day kayaking adventure. Check out their pictures.
We were only two weeks away from spring break and I was already getting ready to be home for a week in my hometown of Glenwood Springs. Every year since I had arrived at Fort Lewis, the tradition was for me to return home for all of the breaks; I really treasured that time with my family since I was now living away from them for eight months.
The school year is beginning and I am excited to see my professors and classmates again. It is hard to believe that it has been almost a year since I saw them. They appear happy to see me also and the question, “How was Africa?” has come up several times. I sincerely appreciate the interest but I still have not found an adequate way to articulate the incredible experiences that composed my semester abroad in Botswana.
While applying for college, one of the main things I looked for was a good study abroad program. Fort Lewis College has an incredible one! With a variety of ways and many different countries, and a lot of help, I knew that I was going to be in good hands when preparing for my study abroad. In the fall of 2011 I studied abroad in Stirling, Scotland. I chose to go through a company called “Eurolearn”, and they helped me with everything from sending in my application, to receiving my acceptance letter, to transferring my credits back to FLC.
