What is your overall opinion of this school?

Going to the Fort changed me in ways I never thought possible. My experience allowed me to interact more with the outdoors, meeting people from multiple backgrounds. The rural atmosphere, tight knit community, and beautiful scenery all made my time there nothing less than incredible. The professors are all professional educators willing to do whatever it takes to help their students. The only unfortunate thing about this school is the overbearing out of state costs some students from around the country just aren't able to afford.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Fort Lewis may not be an ivy league school or be located in California. But it makes up for it in every way possible. Instead its located in Durango Colorado in between the forest good for hiking and a very popular skiing resort near by. If you are a student, they even provide camping and hiking gear. Not only that but they are rebuilding and constantly fixing the buildings and dorms, to make sure that everything is in working condition. All the teachers have exact times and dates in which they can be found making it easy to find them if you are in need of help. Including that there are many activities that you can choose from from art to hiking. This makes it easier to find people with the same interest. Even though the food isn't the best each year they are trying not only for it to be better but also healthier. The entire school focuses on living a healthier and greener life. They promote recycling and using not using as much plastic. Everyone in Fort Lewis is very nice and kind, my first time going to Fort Lewis I had gotten lost and a student helped me get to the place I needed to be. Sadly the only thing that Fort Lewis does not provide is a fraternity or sorority college experience. Other then that Fort Lewis is a great school that provides many opportunities.Such as exchange student programs and a program in which you can learn to skydive.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

In a word, Fort Lewis College is amazing. Nestled within (or rather above) the town of Durango, Colorado, The Fort offers community events both big and small, from movie showings to dorm exclusive video game tournaments. Food can be purchased from a number of locations, including the Rocket Grille, Animas Perks, and the San Juan Dining Hall. To be honest however, the food, especially what's offered in the dining hall, is average. Academics are rigorous.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Fort Lewis College is a small college in Durango, Colorado. I was born in Durango and chose to stay here for college because I wanted to be close to my family and it was cheap. I don't regret going to Fort Lewis College, but I wish I only went for one year instead of two. Unless if you are into climbing, biking, skiing, or hiking, then Fort Lewis is not the college for you. The school seems to only accommodate their activities surrounding these interests and doesn't care about other interests. The food in the cafeteria is not good. It is not fresh, very dry, and hardly digestible. I am a person who hates to leave bad reviews about places, but I don't want other kids to make the same mistake that I did. The dorm life is very boring. I stayed in the dorm my freshman year and it looked like the inside of a prison (and yes, I have toured prisons before). They don't offer community activities or really decorate them. They also don't put you with roommates that you are "most alike" with. In my hall alone, about half of the people roomed with each other switched by the end of second semester. This is a problem because they make you fill out a survey about how you prefer certain things and its almost like they put you with the opposite. Fort Lewis isn't all that bad, the class sizes are small so you have the opportunity to develop a relationship with your professors. There is also a large amount of group work within the classroom, so you get to know your classmates pretty well. Overall, I would not recommend Fort Lewis for students like me, but if you are into climbing, skiing, mountain biking, and activities like that, then Fort Lewis might be right down your alley.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Fort Leis College (FLC) is located in Durango Colorado. The campus is beautiful and the location is hard to beat. Nestled in the Rocky Mountains and only hours from beautiful desert terrain, there is always healthy fun to be had both in learning and recreating with your fellow peers.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I loved Fort Lewis. I was only there for a year and a half, but had the best time. I met great people and had some amazing and caring professors. As always theres gonna be some professors that aren't as good as others but thats always to be expected. I had many opportunities to join clubs and extracurriculars but only joined one. Its a great school and offers many opportunities for your future.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

This campus is in the most beautiful surroundings. The students are so lucky to get to learn in such an amazing environment. There is so much opportunity for outdoor adventure and it awaits right outside your door. The staff seem really helpful and the smaller class sizes make it easier to learn and understand. I can't wait to learn more.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Its a fun and beautiful place to learn! There are plenty of places to study and give you access to a computer if you don't have one. Also, the food is great, except for meatless Mondays, those sneak up on you. There's ice cream though and its delicious. The scenery will win you instantly.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love Fort Lewis College. There are so many opportunities for every type of student here. Teachers are accommodating, and it is a very active community. Every person I have met here is beyond generous. Fort Lewis provides a very peaceful laid back community with lots of adventuring and outside play. If you are an outdoorsy person with a super rad personality, FLC may be the place for you.
