Fort Lewis College Reviews
Review Fort Lewis College
Fort Lewis College is located in a very touristy and busy Durango. This takes back the entire experience of attending college here for me. The dorms seem pretty decent, but definitely overpriced. I'm majoring in Biology and I feel like classes here are fairly easy compared to the University I just transferred from. I also feel like the staff at Fort Lewis has no clue what they're doing. Things get lost all the time, they take forever to get back with you, hidden fees always come up. The Native American tuition waiver is great! The SOLE reason I am attending Fort Lewis actually. If you're into smoking weed, then this place is 100% for you. Haven't found a huge group of people who like drinking and don't want to get belligerent every time. Overall, Fort Lewis is a decent college with opportunities for everyone somewhere, but it's definitely not a top tier college by any means. If you're debating this college with another one you think you'll like, give the other one a try.
The campus is not all that huge, but i love that about it! The location is in the mountains, where everything is so natural and beautiful. There are deer roaming the campus, and occasionally walk with you to class (not exaggerating). The classes are smaller than universities which makes it easier for the professor to get to know the students and help accommodate to their learning abilities and preferences. Professors and helpful and very open minded. There are a wide variety of courses offered, and since it is a liberal arts school, it is important in the curriculum for there to be a little of every subject, not only to learn about your major, but it is important to be well rounded in all subjects, to know and be able to pertain to all information around you. Most professors even love to be involved in outdoor activities with students in clubs, and also have class outside and not in the classrooms most days. It is a great and immersiable experience here at Fort Lewis College.
I just attended a Glow in the dark Run, called Light Up the Night on campus, where we were given glowsticks, and black light paint and black lights, and took pictures. There was also a speaker, food, and drinks. The main goal of the event was for people to become more aware of how serious Sexual Abuse and Assault is. It was a 5k run and 1k walk i support of the social issue, and it was amazingly influential. I gained a lot of support and talk. This week there is also a supportive run on Suicide Prevention, with a candle light vigil and speaker that I will also definitely be attending!
