Dorm life at the Fort
Wednesday, September 25, 2013

Dorm life at the Fort Starting college directly out of high school simply means a lot of changes in life. Moving to a completely different town where you know no one can be exciting and scary at the same time. I grew up and lived for 18 years in the same small town where everyone knew everyone. This made it very comfortable for me and I got used to always seeing someone I knew no matter where I was. Coming to college for the first time here at Fort Lewis, I knew no one.

How many restaurants can you fit in a small town?

How many restaurants can you fit in a small town?

Last night I had the delight of enjoying sushi for an appetizer, pork BBQ sliders and Cajun fries for dinner, then frozen yogurt for desert. Let’s just say that there is nothing quite like the dining scene in Durango. For a small town, we have more restaurants than I have been able to sample in the three years that I have lived here, and I love it. It is common knowledge that Durango has more restaurants per capita than the city of San Francisco: that’s huge, especially when you are like me and love having a wide variety of places to eat when you dine out!

Cabin fever?

When you ask most people what they think of when referring to winters in Durango, probably 80% of the answers you get are skiing and snowboarding related.  While these are a couple of the great things our area has to offer, I personally come nowhere close to being able to afford it.  Of course I’m not trying to discourage anyone from getting a pass and going skiing every day (without missing class obviously), I’m just suggesting some possible alternatives that I have discovered since starting at Fort Lewis.

Sustainability at FLC

Fort Lewis College has a passion for sustainability. From the time I took my first tour of Fort Lewis, more than four years ago, I have been impressed by how much students and teachers care about sustainability. I was lucky enough to qualify for a work-study position so I immediately went to the Environmental Center and applied for a job. I was so happy to get a position on the local food team where I got to both learn about the local food movement in Durango and do my part to promote local food.

Making the choice

Making the choice

I couldn’t have chosen a better college to attend and every day I am extremely thankful that I chose Fort Lewis. I attended high school in Glenwood Springs, Colorado and I knew that it would be very hard for me to leave Glenwood because it is such a beautiful, small mountain town with many outdoor activities available all year round. As high school was coming to an end, I knew that I would not be able to go to an out of state college. I wanted to go to a school where I could easily go skiing without driving a long way to the mountain.
