A Note from Interim President Brad Baca
Welcome to Western.edu!
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 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, handcrafted educational experience on a campus of just 2,300 students. More than 90 percent of our faculty hold the highest degree available in their fields 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 begin a serious investigation of all 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 our first priority will be providing 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 contact me personally.
