Find You. Be You. Stand out. From the beautiful natural environment to the welcoming community, Western is a breath of fresh air and a wonderful place to call home. Get ready to make deep connections and have the real conversations needed to create a better future.
We want people with an appetite for ambition. People who want to learn about the universe, and then change it. We have students designing and building solar-powered tiny homes. A professor who’s on the Mars Curiosity Rover team. And graduates who teach code to fifth graders.
Through close relationships with professors, a community atmosphere, and academic excellence, we help people find their purpose. And we inspire them to pursue that purpose with everything they’ve got. We bring together those who want to change the world, with the people who are changing it.
This is a place where, together, we can MAKE WAVES.
