Fort Lewis College traces its roots back to a U.S. Army Post, after which the college was named, from Pagosa Springs and then later to Hesperus. The U.S. government then established a boarding school called Fort Lewis Indian School after abandoning the site as a military post in 1891. By 1911, the institution's first embodiment was established as a high school of agriculture by 1925 started offering college-level courses.

            Great educational platform that gives you an insite for your future.

            The education I received was not only a textbook learning it was a practical real life education that I have never seen in other college graduates. In the words of the great Lyle Howard you are going to get a rounded education that is going to work for you the rest of your life.
