Dear Friends,


As the College gets ready for our new freshman class and transfers from around the country, the campus is buzzing.  Our enrollment numbers are up and while we continue to be concerned about state financial support, faculty, administration and staff look forward to the exciting year ahead. 


We have students representing 46 American states and 19 countries. We also have 139 tribes represented by our Native American students.  The breadth and depth of student representation will only enrich the composition of Fort Lewis College overall.


If you haven't had a chance to explore all Fort Lewis has to offer, we hope that you will this year.  We want you to become even more involved with the life of the College.  There is so much to experience as new programs, presentations and events are offered on campus.  We hope you will take advantage of these opportunities.  Fort Lewis College is your college, too.  Join us on top of the mesa!
