If you are looking for a fun college, and if you are worried about money. This is a great college to get an awesome education for what you are paying for. Not to mention the professors are pretty much wiling to help at anytime.

I would highly recomend that prospective students visit the campus of the school they are planning to attend while the school is in session and current students are available to talk to. Visiting the school will give you a much better idea of whether you will fit in there or not. When you're in the right place, you'll feel at home. To make the most of the college experience get involved! Think of what you love to do and go find a club that supports it! Chances are that there is already one at the school with students who have that same love. It's a great way to make friends and feel more comfortable in your new environment. Get off campus atleast every once in awhile. Don't be afraid to talk to your professors, financial aid department, advisor, etc.! They are there to help you, and if you just talk to them your life will be so much easier. Lastly, just try new things, have new experiences and get to know everyone around you. College is about finding yourself and discovering the creativity, passions, and parts of you personality you never knew existed! Have Fun!


Stick close to a community that is what you're interested and it will reward you in the end.


College is what you make of it. The people you meet, the experiences you take part in. College is a time to have fun doing things you never though you would. Once college is over, its time for the real world. Honestly, take advantage of what the college has to offer, not only that but the people too. Everyone has something different to offer, and learning from people is almost just as important. A college class size is DEFInatally very important when choosing a college. its all about how you learn. If you need a teaher to know who you are, so that they can push you to work harder, then choose a college like fort lewis.
