1 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: I've never been in a more boring town. It is absolutely beautiful... But you can only stare out at it for so many moths before you need to get back into civilization.

1 College Freshman

Greek Life: There is no Greek life. Similarly, do not expect frat level parties... Or anywhere close

2 College Freshman

Majors: Getting into western is a very easy process. However, you notice what that means as far as student quality once you get here.

3 College Freshman

Majors: The psych program is not horrible and it's not great. There are plenty of other psych majors you can collaborate with, but I felt that my high school psych classes were actually much more challenging and interesting which I view as somewhat off putting.

2 College Freshman

Facilities: Campus life feels like high school round 2. Athletic events are not worth going to as we are a d3 school and school spirit is nonexistent. Campus is very tiny, be prepared to walk to town if you need anything. There are no restaurants, convenience stores, or other conveniences on campus.

2 College Freshman

Facilities: If you are not an avid snowboarder or skiier, don't even bother. That is the social scene here and since winter takes up practically the whole school year if you don't love winter activities you can say goodbye to any chance of a social life. If you do love it, and I mean LOVE it, give western a try... keep in mind winter means -20 degrees daily here.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Dining is really the most exciting thing going on most winter nights. It's not terrible, but most places close ridiculously early.

5 College Junior

Diversity: This place will love you if you love it back

College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: This is a really small town there isn't much here. I would suggest just learning to cook for your self a lot. There are restaurants here but not many options, we do have Chinese,Italian, and MAYBE a Mexican place and then McDonalds... not a bunch of options here. UNLESS you have a car then you could go to the next town over and its a ski town so there is more variety there.

4 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: Everyone in town is either a student at the college them selves or have kids going to western OR they just live there because it is close the the ski resort Crested Butte. Everyone in town in relaxed and likes the college students, we make up the majority of the towns population i think. (This is a SMALL TOWN!)

2 College Freshman

Campus Dining: The food can either be okay(edible),great,or absolutely Horrible! its luck of the draw and as most students have the meal plan the price for the meals is already added into your total year cost. The do normally have a few normal things every night(example is hamburgers/grilled cheese/salad).

3 College Freshman

Computers: The WiFi sucks in the dorms but is really good in the educ halls. And it depends on your major if you need a laptop or not, for mine i definitely do need one. There are plenty of computer labs around though if you cant get a laptop but i does make it a lot easier to study for things/check grades/etc as most of the teachers do use blackboard or something similar.

College Freshman

Diversity: I haven't been here for very long yet, everyone seams to be really friendly to all and nice though.
