First, I want to mention that you shouldn't rely on these review sites in making your decision about college -- the majority of people are only motivated to write reviews when they are pissed off for some reason, keep in mind. I wrote a review for FLC halfway through my first semester here and it was a VERY negative review in which I pretty much just complained, but I've come to see through different eyes about this place since I've settled down. So the first thing I have to say about FLC is GIVE IT A CHANCE. It really depends on what kind of person you are as to whether you'll like it here or not, but really, it's a great school and Durango is a great town. Other reviewers say there is nothing to do here and that the people are rude -- WRONG. Nearly everyone I've met has been super friendly, and there is a lot to do. The catch is that you actually have to talk to people, introduce yourself, and invite people to hang out with you and such in order to have a social life. Fortunately, I'd imagine that it's this way at any college. Or anywhere in life really. Of course you won't find places to party or rage if you don't meet people, but once you start meeting people your social tree branches out fast. Lots of parties downtown all the time and everyone is welcome -- no invite-only shit. Houseowners were always really friendly and welcoming too -- so YES, there IS a great party scene here if you actually make the effort to become involved with it. The classwork is easy in general, but it depends ultimately on the professors and the class. The campus is beautiful and usually very well-maintained...the water pipes broke once and were out for a week but they fixed it up fine. If you like nature and are willing to find things to do in nature you won't be bored, either. Go hiking, snowboarding, skiing, rafting -- there are a lot of outdoor related activities here. No clubs though, only a few bars (and only if you're 21+), and not a whole lot of a nightlife. You can walk downtown or something. Durango is not a city town though so if you're looking for the nightlife go to Denver or some shit. I also saw a lot of people commenting on how the general population here is just hippies who smoke weed, which is kinda true in a sense. If you're down with stoners and weed smoking then this is the place for you -- if you're against it, save yourself the stress and go somewhere else. This is the perfect school for people who want a fun, laid-back college experience with plenty of outdoor adventures and parties. Once you settle down a little it really grows on you...I just started my second semester and I love it here now. Also check out the ratemyprofessors website when registering for classes and get the good teachers, 'cause it makes a world of difference.
