“Students interested in Accounting can attend Western and obtain a high-quality, personal, career-oriented Accounting major or minor, offered on a beautiful, safe campus with unparalleled outdoor recreation opportunities.

Frankly, there is no other college or university in the United States that can offer a student what we can, both inside AND outside the classroom.”
