My experience at WesternGeography and Geosciences
My experience at Western impacted my whole life, professionally and personally. It was the best thing I ever did. The geology department is excellent.

Question
Growing up in a small mountain town inAverageEnglish
Growing up in a small mountain town in Oregon and being an extreme sports nut is why I chose Western. By the way, its WSCU or Western State Colorado University now. The place (Gunnison) is beautiful but you should be prepared for very cold and snowy winters. The school size of about 3,000 is awesome and you get to know everyone. This is NOT an uptight, clicky school with fraternities and sororities. If you are looking for that, go somewhere else. If you love the outdoors, good down to earth people and the mountains. GO HERE! Value for money, this is the best you can ask for. If you are from the Western states, they offer the WUE or Western Undergraduate Exchange which lowers tuition by about $5k/year. The Mountain Sports Team is amazing and coaches are sick! I was not a strong (good grades) high schooler but being at Western has made me want to succeed. We looked at a lot of colleges and I am so glad that I came here.

Question
This was a great experience, for an undergraduateBrightBiology
This was a great experience, for an undergraduate degree. Gunnison really grows on you. It has a terrible reputation. But, only from the laziness of its students. The professors far exceeded my expectations. And became close friends with a half dozen of them. The course work, load, and curriculum was all above board. I would go here again, but the townies, and the students well... you'll have to ignore them if you want a great education. I felt completely confident leaving there to attend graduate school.
