New Student Orientation
Kick your college career into high gear with Fort Lewis College’s JumpStart experience. This intensive seven-day program launches a week before the semester begins, offering opportunities to explore your new home-away-from-home with fellow highly motivated students and our engaged, inspiring faculty.
Choose from a math- or composition-focused program and spend three hours each day honing skills and building a solid base in time management. As one of our premier rising scholars, you’ll gain exposure to career services, Canvas courses, cultural-diversity training, advising and degree mapping, and insights into self-care and study-life balance.
Per our mentality of work hard, play hard, you’ll also have plenty of time to explore Durango’s boundless treasures, from cultural landmarks to the great outdoors and a variety of local hotspots. All the while, hang out with classmates, get familiar with campus, and settle into your room – all before school starts!
