All of the faculty at this school are "inbred" - meaning they really mostly hire back people who have graduated there at some point in their lives. Staff know how to teach things the "western state" way but don't have much more experience beyond that which made my education feel remarkably limited providing only a narrow perspective on the arts. Its been difficult to get a job since as a degree from Western in the real world is pretty much a joke because of how they hire their faculty.
Western State is a joke. Everybody's half drunk all of the time. The head of the science department allows teachers to never change tests so if you find old tests you have the test and to top it cheating is acceptable. If you don't care about your education come to Western.
The school over all is a really good school. Res life is the worst part. The treat freshmen like they are gold and treat upper class people really badly. I if I was not in my 4th year I would have left
