Western Colorado University was recently rated one of the top 100 most affordable small colleges west of the Mississippi River by GreatValueColleges.net.
The website provides articles and rankings that help students find the college best suited to their budget, educational needs and career goals.
Great Value Colleges also commended Western for providing a personalized learning experience, a wide selection of extracurricular activities and a diverse array of majors.
“At college, it’s easy to blend into the background and become just another face in a large lecture hall. Western Colorado University tries a different approach, leveraging small class sizes and engaged professors to help elevate students’ learning experience,” the article says.
In addition to its already-low tuition costs, Western also offers a wide array of financial aid opportunities, including scholarships and work-study programs.
