Fort Lewis College students excel at creating solutions outside of the classroom. When they see a need that isn’t being served in their communities, they draw on their interdisciplinary backgrounds to fill that gap with their own answers. Here’s a look at how four entrepreneurs are shaping the town that the College calls home.

We refer to it as a mesa, but the flat-topped home of the FLC campus 300 feet above Durango is technically a “fluvial bench” – a layer of ancient river deposits dropped by an ancestral Animas River and carved along its edges over thousands of years by that same stream.

The view from here is pretty inspiring.

From the Fort Lewis College campus, you can watch the sun rise from behind a pinion-and juniper-adorned ridgeline, and then see it set behind a sweeping range of mountain peaks, diamond white in winter and cool blue-green in the summer.

In May, President Dene Kay Thomas announced that she will retire effective June 30, 2018, concluding an eight-year run that saw a number of challenges and accomplishments that helped to reshape the College.

At FLC, students have a chance to get really dynamic with their study breaks. Sure, we’re known for our world-class hiking, skiing, and mountain biking. But we also have a hoppin’ dance community that’s accessible to dancers of all skill levels and styles.

It’s hard to go into business with family. But the Martin brothers can hardly imagine working with anybody else. For them, the formula is paying off: Nitrum Dynamic Paint, which they founded while attending Fort Lewis College, is increasing its capacity to recycle paint, while also contributing to a better world and keeping these brothers connected beyond their college experiences.
