Top o' the World


The Top o’ the World, with a staff of editors, writers, layout personnel, photographers and advertisement managers, offers students both a strong voice in their campus community and a training ground for future work in journalism and media.

As the student voice of Western Colorado University since 1921, The Top is entirely written and produced by Western students, with funding from student fees and advertising. A practicum credit is available for working on the paper, regardless of your major.
