If you are not an entitled white personBright
If you are not an entitled white person who just wants to ski, don't go here. You are entering a moral and cultural wasteland. Town pasttimes: Drinking and smoking weed. If you are anticipating a wonderful time in the local outdoors, be prepared to deal with the local homeless problem as well. Don't anticipate receiving a valuable education either; the "fort leisure" mentality is alive and well.

Question
Fort Lewis is called Fort Leisure for aQuite Bright
Fort Lewis is called Fort Leisure for a reason. If you are looking to actually be challenged, go elsewhere. The courses are extremely easy, and I feel like my high school classes were harder. The people in my classes do not seem to be very bright.. The dorms are unbelievably shitty and over-priced. The food is not good at all. The only good things, in my opinion, are the size and the friendliness of the faculty. I feel like the professors are extremely smart but have to dumb down their curriculum and standards because the students aren't. You can really tell just from sitting in class that they accept 90% of anyone who applies. If you can't get in anywhere else, then fine, it's not the worst school. But if you want a really good education at a school with a good reputation that will offer you connections for grad-school then this isn't the place for you.

Question
While I cannot speak for other departments, myBrightEnglish
While I cannot speak for other departments, my time here has been excellent. I transferred from Colorado State University-Pueblo in 2012, which is why I have only spent 2 years at Fort Lewis College, but the transfer was well worth it. I was able to work out transfer issues with the faculty of my department, and they were very help. They also made sure things would work out for me to graduate on time. When it came to applying for graduation, the Registrar's Office was incredibly helpful in hammering out final details.
