What Students Are Saying

3.46 Average Rating
Making a good impression can be important when entering college, which is why it's always a good idea to attend orientation. I can't stress this enough, which is why it is a good idea to attend if you are able to. Not only will you be put in a relaxed setting where it is easy to meet potential classmates and friends, but you can obtain all of the necessary things you will need for the upcoming school year (parking pass, computer ID, email ID, etc)
Michael from Charlton, MA
Western CT is a split campus, with upperclassmen and honors students on one campus, and freshmen and most classroom buildings on the other. Fairfield Hall is the best dorm for freshmen, and Pinney Hall is the best dorm for upperclassmen, or at least this is the general consensus =]. If living on campus, make sure to communicate with your roommate(s) before hand. Space may be tight, so there's no sense in bringing doubles of everything. Get involved in a club or organization. There are clubs to fit every person along with a great Honors Program and a superb Student Government Association. Freshmen are allowed to have cars on campus, but if you feel bringing a car may make money tight, don't bother. There is a shuttle to take you between campuses and Danbury has a bustling bus line to take you from one location to the next. All of the cafeterias on campus offer great food selection, so you'll never find it dull. You can try getting an on campus job. At most jobs on campus, you can do your homework while doing your job. You meet a lot of great people at the same time too! If you're a freshmen or new student, make sure you attend orientation. Not only will you meet lots of people in the same boat as you, but you'll learn valuable information about the school as well as important information for your success. I loved freshmen orientation; there were some entertaining activities! Most importantly, be yourself, learn a lot, and have fun. College is much different from high school. Don't stress, there are many gateways available to relieve stress and the university offers great counseling services, mentor services, and tutoring resources when you need help the most.

Western is known for its music, musical theater, Justice and Law Administration, nursing, and social work programs. Also, there is always a club or activity that will match your interests.
