What is your overall opinion of this school?

Western State Colorado University has certainly grown over the last couple of years, but there is still room for improvement. Most of the teachers are great, staff are mostly friendly, and the learning environment can be incredibly frustrating at times. The On-Campus Housing needs some serious improvement, except for Pinnacles Apartments. All the other On-Campus Housing needs renovation. The On-Campus Food Service is okay, for the most part. Financial Aid is perhaps the worst part in the entire college, expect little-to-no help from the Financial Counselors, especially if you are an out-of-state student. Although, there are many clubs to participate in, and definitely a lot more hands-on learning experience than any other college I've been to.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Western Sate Colorado University is located in a beautiful area, the academics are also exceptional, however there are many cons, the food, in my opinion is awful, it tastes stale and dry and the same food seems to be served every single day, there is also absolutely nothing to do in the town of Gunnison, the campus also seems to be dead all the time, there is really never anybody around. This school is good for students who desire a smaller classroom, but socially, there are much better schools available.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

This is a school for people looking to be in the mountains and play at an affordable price. Most classes are not any more challenging than a standard high school class. Fairly intelligent people may feel they are not being challenged and rather breezing by. Be aware graduating from Western will make you an underdog when applying for competitive jobs. There is quite a mix of professors, ranging from enthusiastic and excellent to I'd be better off teaching myself (which often happens). Overall, Western is a good place to get a college degree, but not necessarily a college level education.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

For the price, it is great, but comepared to other schools, it falls short. I feel that the community is great and welcoming, but the academics only take you so far. It honestly feels like a slight extension of high school. However, it’s great for a first-time college experience.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Western State Colorado University is a great school. Small class sizes allow for more personal interaction with the teachers. I have come to feel that my professors really care about me and are willing to help me in all my endeavors. WSCU is in a great town where the community members are as friendly and supportive as the professors, and there are lots of events in which students are invited to participate.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Western is an amazing school for those who wish to study in a small sized classroom, with professors who are always willing to help and meet with students. Living on campus has opened doors to joining a long list of very diverse clubs. Food services on campus however leave something to be wanted. Overall, I love living and growing at Western State Colorado University.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Love it! The location is beautiful, with spectacular scenery. The average weather is great too, and all seasons are included, unlike in Texas where I'm from. The facilities are fantastic! The indoor track, weight room, and rock climbing wall are all state-of-the-art and I dare you to find something better. You can get a private school education for a public school price, but they also offer a lot of scholarships including some hefty merit scholarships.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Western State Colorado University is a great school. The campus is beautiful and the staff and students are great. Gunnison is a small town but being at Western gives you a great opportunity to meet new people and explore the small town of Gunnison. Studying at Western is great because you don't have to stress about big class sizes and a professor not knowing your name and, there's no worry of not being able to meet with your professor during office hours.
