From the President's Office
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 this campus busy and alive with activity.
If you are a student looking for the right university experience, we are pleased to have this opportunity to introduce you to Western. Our university has a more than 100 year tradition of offering many degrees in the liberal arts and sciences as well as business, accounting, environmental studies and teacher education.
Western offers an intimate, hand crafted educational experience on a campus of 2,300 students. More than 90% of our faculty hold the highest degree available in their field of study. We may be a public university, but you’ll find a private school experience at Western. Students and professors know each other on a first name basis. Our average class size is just 17 students.
I hope your visit to this website will be the beginning of a serious investigation of what we have to offer. To learn more about Western, contact us by visiting the Admissions section of our site or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Of course, the best way to learn about Western is to visit us here in Gunnison. When you visit our campus, I hope you and your family will come by my office in Taylor Hall and say hello.
I pledge to those of you considering Western State Colorado University that we will provide 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 improve, please feel free to contact me personally.
Interim President, Western State Colorado University
