What Students Are Saying

3.80 Average Rating
Aim high and just be excited. This college will be everything you will want in a school and more. Make sure to branch out of your comfort zone and meet friends the first day. It is very easy to meet people here and make friends. Also, attend orientation, because you will meet many of your future friends there. Study hard and there will still be free time. Also, get involved with volunteer opportunities and clubs. That is a great way to get to know people and help you feel better about yourself.
Jacquelyn from Grand Rapids, MI
Everyone is always saying to leave your doors open the first year in the dorms to meet new people, and it's absolutely true. I made some of the best friends I've ever had on my floor and I couldn't have if my door wasn't open. Going to college is a nervous thing to do but you just have to keep in mind that everyone is in the same boat. It's not like moving to a new high school where everyone already has their own friends since kindergarten. No one around you has been to college before so everyone is open to new friends and new bonds.
Beverly from Estes Park, CO
If you love adventure, this is for you. Think about what you want to do in the future as well. Apply early in your senior year to many colleges. Also, apply for scholarships. You can never apply for too many. They really do help alot.
Jacob from Yoder, CO
The campus tour is very helpful, but they can't show you the college experience. Its different for everybody, and the faculty and Orientation leaders make the transition to Western smooth and extremely welcoming.
There are many clubs and groups to be apart of. Also there are plenty of people who don't partake in the drug and drinking scenes.

say hello to everyone you pass by because friendships and connections are important in life. work hard from the beginning because graduate school cares how well you do in school and your first job out of college will care too.
