Fort Lewis College has an average of 1200 Native students each semester. Over 150 different tribes/nations are represented by our students who are traditional and non-traditional, single, single parents, or couples with children.
These students are served in their needs through the Native American Center. The Center is a friendly and inviting place to come and study, socialize, participate in academic support programs, utilize resources, or attend cultural programs and activities.
Fort Lewis College will be celebrated on a national stage in Washington D.C. today for committing to create a healthier campus through food, physical activity and more.
Wonder what it's like to be a student at Fort Lewis College? Join non-traditional student Michael, a Business Administration major, as he goes through his day: attending class, giving tours to prospective students, picking up his son from school, and working at FLC's Downtown Welcome Center.
Each October, Student Union Productions teams up with the Residence Hall Association to create the scariest place on campus: a haunted house called Nightmare on Rim Drive. Watch as 4CornersTV correspondent Laura West braves the experience.
Dance Co-Motion is a student-run organization open to anyone who loves to dance, no matter what their major is. Many styles are brought to the group, including ballet, lyrical, hip-hop, belly dancing, and more. All levels of dance experience are welcome and the main focus is to provide dance for enjoyment. "Passion, not perfection," as Haley says here. Students choreograph pieces and put on a public performance in downtown Durango at the end of every semester. It's a great way to both get involved on campus and be a part of the community!
Upon graduating many FLC alumni look to the horizon for more excitement, while also wanting to do some good in the world.
Take a tour of the Leadership Center! The Leadership Center is the hub on campus for student involvement and houses student organizations (RSOs), leadership programs, Student Union Productions (SUP), student government (ASFLC), and wellness initiatives. Our friendly staff wants you to become a part of the Fort Lewis College community so stop by and let us help you get involved!
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.
