Fort Lewis is not the worst school, however it is not great either. The dining hall is awful along with the bookstore. There are very little resources available when you need them. The class size is nice, however it is hard to get into many classes. There is many instances where they are full.
Overall great school. Durango culture is pretty laid back so it is important to be self motivated - you definitely get out what you put in. Lots of diversity and many chances to get involved on and off campus. There are lots of resources available for students. Small class sizes make building relationships with professors very accessible, and the school is willing to work with you to make sure you can explore everything you want to, from multiple majors to an nontraditional degree track, etc.
Loved my experience at FLC. Not the most challenging but I felt I was offered a good direction for potential careers. You will get out of the degree what you put in. One of the best things is that the class sizes are small which leaves plenty of space to connect with professors.
I think the Fort is an amazing college, I'm a local kid, so I grew up in Durango. Despite going to school in the town I was raised in, and feeling an urge to want to explore and get out, I went to the fort. It feels so different, it has it's own culture and everyone is so nice and friendly. Just yesterday I spent an hour after class with my professor and three other students to continue our conversation about consciousness. Some professors can be picky with grading but they leave an overabundance of notes and will sit down with you for hours to talk about your papers and how to do better. If you take the time to learn you WILL learn, especially if you learn best in a collaborative environment. Very little is lecture, so if hiding in the back of the classroom is your style, you won't like the fort. Academics are by far the best part of the fort in my opinion, student life is great and the food and housing is average. If you want teachers you can chat with about your major who share the same passions you do, then the fort is for you.

I would tell myself not to worry. I worried a lot about the transition to a college so far away. But now I know that colleges are aware that the transition can be hard and really try to eliminate that fear. I would also tell myself to not forget about my family. Even though they are far away, it doesn't mean I can't still talk to them. Family is a great solid foundation that I forgot about and realized I needed way later in the year. So I would tell myself to call them more often, just to chat. The biggest thing I would say though, is to stay true to myself. While it is good to try new things that are outside of my comfort zone, it is also important to realize why I feel that way and stay strong with my own morals. I would tell myself to stand out and not get washed away with everyone else; because it is important to do what feels right no matter what others are telling you. Most likely, you have that gut instinct for a very good reason.
My school is located in a small mountain area. Traveling to and from this location can be difficult in the winter. Airfare directly in and out of our local airport is expensive.
The most frustrating thing about my school is that there are not many social outlets such as nice malls and social atrratctions in the city of Durango
Fort lewis college is liberal.
I brag about all of the things I get to do. Fort Lewis does a great job at getting the students involved in the great outdoors. They have a great group called OP (stands for Outdoor Pursuits). With a minimal fee, you are able to rent out a bunch of outdoor gear to do anything from camping to climbing, to kayaking. I love that the school caters to people who enjoy the outdoors. It has really made me appreciate nature and my school more, simply by making my adventures possible.
The school is best known for its surrounding view. The campus is centered around surrounding mountain ranges. The view is breathtaking. Durango is also a great area to explore the outdoors while getting an education. Fort Lewis has some very challenging majors. They have a great Psychology program as well as a great Business program. Beginning the fall of 2013 they will have their first Graduate program in education, another great program.
The professors for the business department are people who had extremely high positions in their field, such as CEO's, and came to Durango so we, the students, get more practical knowledge on the subject. Also, the business department is fully accreted.
Fort Lewis College is an very open liberal arts college, where teachers encourage students to find out what they want to do with their lives. This means that the teachers really want us to succeed.
There are so many different types of students that go here that no matter what kind of person you consider yourself, you will find friends.
Someone who is seeking a community feeling both on campus and in town. Someone who is progressively minded and forward thinking. A student who enjoys small personal intimate classes. Someone who is responsible and takes advantage of having small classes and professors that are available to them. Someone who enjoys the outdoors and is environmentally minded. A sense of cultural acceptance.
