Colorado State University Pueblo I have been looking at this college for awhile, and a part of my actually wants to call it my dream college. Although I am not dead set on this place, I am in love with the city that incompetents it. Pueblo is a city I really felt connected to and the surrounding would be everything. However, I do not want to let my love for a town dictate where I get my education. I was intentionally drawn to CSU Pueblo because it is one of the best schools in Colorado for English teaching and teaching in general.
Fort Lewis College
Although CSU Pueblo seemed like my dream school for me in the beginning of the year, as the end drew closer I have decided the the Fort is my best choice and one of my favorites. What draws me to the Fort so much is the fact that it is in Durango CO, my beautiful home state and my favorite town. I will be close to my parents which is good for me and my mom's health, she would really miss me if I moved very far away. The Fort is full of interesting programs I want to get into, the biggest being the ECO group/club. I got to look in depth into this club when I went on the Junior field trip with Sara Price. At first I was sad that I didn't get to see the inner workings of a meat plant or the epic farm of the James family; however, once I got up to the Fort and got to see the amazing work the students and staff were doing, I was really inspired to do it myself. I got a chance to see some of the inside of the campus and even the compost room were all the magic happens. I love Durango and it will always have a special place in my heart, even if it seems like a boring, little town to other people. Another reason for my decision was the sheer amount of excellent teachers I see coming out of the Fort, and if that really is the career path I want to take, then it will be perfect for me. Plus, I would miss the Animas river too much if I left.
