FLC’s Latino College Day offers an inside look at college

Latino College Day at Fort Lewis College is the annual event which welcomes 9th through 12th grade Hispanic students and their families to campus to learn more about college life in general and what FLC has to offer. This year, Latino College Day is scheduled for Friday, February 12, 2016 from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Registration is available at www.fortlewis.edu/latinocollegeday. The deadline to register is Monday, February 8.

Included in the Latino College Day activities are workshops on applying for financial aid, discussions with current Hispanic students at FLC on what college life is really like, campus tours, and even a performance from the Ballet Folklorico de Durango dance group. Lunch and dinner are also offered, with dinner requiring an RSVP after registration.

Latino College Day has been a part of Fort Lewis College since 2005. Currently, Hispanic students make up about 11 percent of the FLC student body.
