Some of Fort Lewis College students' most rewarding experiences and achievements don't make it onto their resumes or applications for graduate school or jobs -- studying abroad, completing an internship or volunteer experience, making the dean’s list, or winning a departmental award or scholarship -- even though these may be the most meaningful, educational, and career-preparing accomplishments on the way to earning their degrees.

This summer I'll be spending a month in Laos with Engineers Without Borders. We’ll be working in a small village in the central part of the country, putting in about 13 kilometers of pipeline from their water source, to the village and into a storage tank. We will be building the pipeline, the source structure, and the pipeline. Next year we’ll go back and put in the rest of the distribution system, pipe and taps for the rest of the village.

This year, a group of Fort Lewis College students and their faculty mentors changed the world. A little bit, anyway.
In May, a group of 18 students and five professors traveled to Laos, where over 24 days they completed a water supply system for a remote village. In July and August, another group of 13 students and six professors visited Ecuador to develop two clean water sources and delivery systems.
