At least five sets of siblings graduated together in the Spring 2014 Commencement Ceremony, and countless others were joined by their alumni siblings in the stands.

“My first experience with stand-up comedy was at an open mic night on campus,” says comedian Adrianne Chalepah (English, '09). “A friend encouraged me, and I got hooked. The students laughed and were so supportive. So I give that night credit for giving me the courage to pursue it as a career.”
Today, Chalepah averages three stand-up shows per month at venues ranging from casinos to powwows to college campuses to conferences (she's a motivational speaker, too).

Kelsy Woodson says she learned to dream big at Fort Lewis College. In June she is putting those dreams to use, when she climbs California's Mt. Shasta as part of the Breast Cancer Fund’s “Climb Against the Odds.”
“I have never climbed anything like Mt. Shasta. But I will do so with cancer survivors and other climbers who have lost those dear to them,” Woodson says. “We will be raising awareness about breast cancer, and raising money to help remove toxic elements from our environment that are known to cause cancer.”
