At Western, your education is more than what happens in the classroom. It’s the wonder inspired by your place in the mountains, the self-discovery encouraged by your professors and peers, and the knowledge you gain about the world and yourself. When you live Western, you chase discovery. Embrace experimentation. And expand your knowledge beyond boundaries. Small class sizes provide intimate access to experienced faculty who are dedicated to student mentorship.
