VIDEO: A day in the life of Jake

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 Jake, a senior Biology major who aspires to be a veterinarian. On a typical day, Jake hikes up to campus, meets with his research advisor in the Honors Program, goes to his neurobiology class, and works at a local small animal veterinary clinic.

Snyder B is the place to be

It’s not a lie: Snyder B was the place to be. All the residents were always there. Even people who were not residents in Snyder B were always there. We mobbed over to dinner all together, we went camping all together, and we went out on the weekends all together. We had heard legends of Snyder B residents from the past and yearned to be college legends as well.

Finding a balance

I came to college simply expecting a degree, a simple diploma in hand. Now almost half way through my time here, I can already affirm I’ve gained so much more. I’ve walked a knotty road of stretching myself far too thin and had to bounce back from a fluctuating ebb and flow of people and places buzzing around me in a busy chatter. Coming to college has been a meaningful journey and I’ve learned many important lessons, though one lesson stands out to me the most: finding a balance between work and play.

After breakfast and a chat with my roommates, I walked a few minutes to the bus stop where I waited with a few friends who live near by.
