New Geosciences, Physics, Engineering Building an investment in the future

Demolition began on a section of Berndt Hall that will be the new home of the Fort Lewis College Geosciences, Physics and Engineering (GPE) Building. The new building will be three times larger than the old structure, which was built in 1968. Completion of the new facility is expected in fall 2016.

Students aid professor researching lightning on the edge of space

Ask any of the 275 students in the Physics & Engineering Department at Fort Lewis College what a “sprite” is, and they’re probably not going to tell you it’s a soft drink or a green fairy from a mythical land. Their responses might be something more like this: “A ghostly flash above the clouds.” “Violent, beautiful bursts of energy.” “Vertical, red-orangery lightning.”
