About us

Western is an energized campus community with nearly 16,000 students and over 160 academic programs. Western offers the focus on students and the faculty access of a smaller college with the academic choice, opportunities for research, multicultural diversity, and room to grow of a large university. Not so big that you feel like a number; not so small that you have to conform to a mold. Large enough for you to define yourself and small enough that you make a difference. Making the most of a Western education means opening your mind, learning by doing, enriching the community, and shaping an academic adventure that is uniquely yours. You aren’t just getting an education; you are building a foundation for lifelong success. From the beautiful natural environment to the welcoming community of individuals inhabiting it, Western is a breath of fresh air and a wonderful place to call home.
