What Students Are Saying

4.02 Average Rating
The environment is amazing and not only the teachers but everyone is very helpful. Western will your home away from home and you will be proud to call yourself a Catamount. At Western, there is so much to do academically and recreationally so you will never get bored.

i would rate western carolina with an 8 because they are still growing. the reason i say this is because they are still developing or trying to become a bigger school. i also believe that there could be more things around cullowhee to do.
