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.

    You will easily find great friends because everyone is super friendly. The professors are very willing to help you with anything if you ask for it. Lastly, location is everything. If you love the outdoors, or if you want to get more into outdoorsy things like ice climbing or mountaineering, this is the place to be.

    The campus here is beautiful and the professors are amazing, but the amount of partying that happens is excessive. Also, it does cost quite a lot of money if you are going to be living on campus. Lastly, I would give this University a 6 on a 1 - 10 scale because they have a quality education but the way they deal with students and problems is not very good.

    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!!!!

    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.
