From meetup to community mainstay
With a game of Lotería, Latin food, a piñata and dazzling live performances by Mariachi Amigos de Nuevo México and Ballet Folklórico de Durango, Fort Lewis College celebrated the 30th Fiesta on the Mesa, launching this year's Hispanic Heritage Month.
Getting started at college is an enormous adjustment for students. It’s typical to feel lonely, nervous, scared, and sad right alongside feeling thrilled, hopeful, free, and empowered.
What to expect when the nest empties out
Whether you were counting down the days or biting your nails in dread, it impacts a family when your child leaves for college—when they become less a “child” and more of a “student.” This changes the day-to-day of your life; it changes the relationships between family members still living together; it may even change the way you see yourself.
Find a job with your degree
"How has Career Services prepared my student for this ever-changing workforce?” As I was looking their student up in our employment platform, I told each of the parents that it is never too late to meet with Career Services, even if their student was graduating that day.
Meet our dedicated team
At the end of a full day of classes, work, outdoor adventuring, and student organization involvement, your student needs a safe and welcoming place to rest their head for the night. We take the responsibility of providing that safe, welcoming space seriously. And it takes many of us to pull it off. Here’s a little introduction of my staff who make this all possible.
How to get the most out of Campus Dining
How we eat is incredibly important and also personally intimate. We all eat, and we all eat differently. At Campus Dining, we know this about our students and we value it. You can rest assured that your student gets so much more than the nutrition they need. They’re eating in a space that’s designed from the ground up to be welcoming to each individual in the spirit of creating a comfortable community.
SkyCard, Dining Dollars & SkyCash
Sleep soundly knowing your student can cover basic needs like food and clean clothes by using their SkyCard—the student ID that works like a debit card on campus.
