Learning, Elevated.

Western offers a private college experience at an affordable cost,
deep in the heart of the Rocky Mountains.
We deliver a full, 4-year liberal arts curriculum with graduate programs, but it’s much more than that. With an average class size of just 17 students, professors will handcraft your education to fit your interests and prepare you for a career.
