From the President
Welcome to Western State Colorado University! We have designed this website so prospective students can learn more about us, and so our alumni and friends can keep up with the news and events that keep the campus busy and alive with activity.
If you are a student considering college, we are pleased to have this opportunity to introduce you to Western State Colorado University (WSCU). On this web page, and throughout our site, you will find information about our fine academic areas. Our University offers many degrees in the liberal arts and sciences as well as in professional areas such as business, accounting, recreation and teacher education.
You will also find information about our faculty, more than 90 percent of whom have their doctorate degrees. These men and women were attracted to the University for many of the same reasons students come here. They wanted to be a part of a relatively small institution where they can teach small classes and spend time with students outside of class. They are also attracted to the beautiful Gunnison Valley. Their e-mail addresses are included, as is mine, so feel free to contact any of us with questions.
On this site you will get some idea of the beauty of our campus and the area and you will learn about our beautiful location (WSCU is at the highest altitude of any college or university in the United States ). You can see our mountains, streams and rivers -- places we utilize for study and recreation.
I hope your visit to our website will be the beginning of a serious investigation of what we have to offer. To learn more about WSCU you should contact us by visiting the "Admissions" section of our site or emailing email@example.com. Of course, the best way to learn about WSCU is to visit Gunnison and our campus. When you visit our campus, I hope you and your parents will come by my office in Taylor Hall to say "Hello."
I pledge to those of you who are considering Western State Colorado University that we will provide opportunities for an education that will change your life. I pledge to parents that our first priority will be to provide an outstanding education for your son or daughter in a safe and beautiful place. If we can answer questions you have, or if you have suggestions about how we can do a better job, please contact me personally.
