Most Helpful Review for Western State Colorado University

The teachers from Western State are voted the best of the state of Colorado. The teacher to student ratio is 20:1. Since the school and class sizes are small, you receive a lot of one-on-one action and the teachers make sure you know the material before moving on. I have learned so much that I bipassed in high school. The teachers teach subjects in a way that in interesting and attention grabbing. You will never get bored and will be excited to go to class the next time.

    WSCU is a very laid back environment, teachers are very nice and will always help you. The people at WSCU are very friendly and will help you find your way around the town. However, the school spirit needs a boost!!!!

    WSCU is a great school for outdoor lovers. Skiing, hiking, fishing and pretty much anything you can think of. The sports teams here are really starting to compete at a high level.

    This is a great school to go to if you are looking to spend time in a small town. Most people are really nice and you will form friendships with your professors. There is a ton of outdoor recreation surrounding the area, so you will never run out of things to do.

    A beautiful mountain town nestled in the Rockies. Amazing outdoor opportunities and ways to get involved due to small campus size. Small class sizes let you get the help you need and know your professors on a personal level.

    Western State Colorado University is in the top five schools for snowboarding and skiing due to Crested Butte resort only being 30 minutes away. The summers are beautiful, fishing is superb, the hunting has trophy deer and an abundance of elk, an abundance of mountains and rocks to climb or mountain bike on. The frigid Winter brings great snow fall, perfect for snowboarders and skiers. If you love the outdoors, love a small and caring mountain town, this is the place for you!
