Student ProfilesUp one level
"At WSCU, I’m not just a number — I feel like a vital part of the campus."
“WSCU has the most incredible opportunities — almost too many opportunities. And it’s the best area for adventure sports possible."
"Western is right for me because the students are empowered to identify what is important to them and then be aggressive in supporting that cause."
"I’m not a 'snow bunny,' so I find as much to do on campus as possible to keep myself engaged."
"I love Western because it has allowed me to connect with my professors and I’ve built friendships for life."
"I have become a very strong leader and more opinionated. I have confidence in myself which helps me to exert my leadership in a positive way."
"There are not many places where you can work out a problem 1-on-1 with your professor in their office after class and shred with them the next day on the slopes."
“There’s not one person here that fits the mold... that’s the beautiful part of it.”

I feel like when I walk into a classroom I am connected to the other students and the professor personally. It is so different than being just a number in a large lecture class that larger institutions offer. I also love how easy it is to be involved on campus. I am more than a number at Western. Instead, I am an important member of my program and I matter to my professors and colleagues.
This place is like a private college, and I don’t think I would have had the same opportunities and personalized attention elsewhere.
