Learning, Elevated.

Western offers a private college experience at a public university cost, deep in the heart of the Rockies. We deliver a full, four-year liberal arts curriculum with graduate programs. But we're much more than that. With an average class size of just 17 students, professors help you handcraft your education to fit your interests and prepare you for a career.
