Health & Safety:
The students are allowed to carry guns. I feel very safe in the hands of my hunting peers.

It is way cheaper to live off campus then to live on campus. Plus it's not dictated by the school.

Football is the least important sport here, if you want to be noticed learn how to do something cool. Anything to do with winter sports or bikes is highly recognized here.

Gunnison is possibly the best small town city I have ever had the pleasure to live in. All around it is a wonderful place to be.

The on campus food is the worst! Off campus is where you have to eat if you don't want to be sick. Very poor quality.

Sometime the wireless is terrible but mostly that is because I grew up in a generation where patience wasn't a virtue.

The best things in life are free and here if you're too drunk to walk then safe ride will take you anywhere.

I would do it over in a heart beat. I want to be a teacher and so far this experience has been the best I have ever had.

Education here is the best major the advisor is a bit lost in how to direct students but the other kids in your major always know what up.
College Sophomore 2013-11-04T21:59:44Z
Usually they aren't open very late but everything in town is within a five minute walk, it's always fun too!

If you love skiing or snowboarding this place is for you! It gets very cold in the winter and that isn't even close to an exaggeration.

The best part about Western is that there is NO GREEK LIFE!
College Sophomore 2013-11-04T21:56:33Z
We have the best food here in Gunnison. There are not many choices but the ones that we do have are wonderful!
College Sophomore 2013-11-04T21:55:15Z
On campus living is very small and resident life is the worst group of people to possibly deal with.
College Sophomore 2013-11-04T21:53:36Z
At Western we are very accepting and our community is great!

As a psychology major, it was extremely easy for me to find an internship in the same city as my school. With such a close knit community there is never a lack of connections to get you something close to what you are looking for. However, with Gunnison being such a small city, I would probably recommend doing a summer internship outside of the valley, and in a bigger city. I did my internship for the domestic violence center, but with it being such a small community, it was much more difficult to become involved given that we had such a small number of clients.

Western has amazing facilities for students to use. All but one or two buildings are new or have been recently renovated, and there is rarely a problem being able to access the student rec center, library, or student union. When the weather is nice there are several green spaces for students to enjoy a game of ultimate frisbee, slack lining, or just relaxing in the sun. It would be almost impossible for a student NOT to find a place to study or hang out with their friends!

For Being such a small school we do have a noticeable amount of diversity, but students of different races and ethnicities tend to be in athletics. Everyone seems to get along well though. Outside of racial diversity, Western does have an extremely diverse student background with about 35% of the student population being from out of state! with most, if not all 50 states being represented.

Because Western is such a small school, there is almost an unlimited number of opportunities to get to know others and get involved on campus. They have a significant variety of clubs, and a ton of hands on experiences in every academic program that you could not get at larger schools. For example, the psychology department has rats for studying, the geology department has the Rocky Mountains for their playground, the film department has access to state of the art equipment, and I could go on for every single department on campus. These are opportunities many students attending larger schools could only dream about, or have to wait until their graduate program to start working with.

Drugs and alcohol seem to be extremely visible and accessible. If you name a major drug I could probably name at least one person who has tried it or uses it regularly. Marihuana and alcohol are also extremely prevalent throughout the campus and student population. However, it is still possible and easy to avoid such activities of that is your personal choice.

Great access to computer labs with excellent computers.

The variety is very slim. Marios pizza is usually a favorite. Many like to travel 25 minutes to Crested Butte to eat too.

It's Colorado so Marijuana is huge. Drinking is too. Harder drugs see non existent.

Western has recently added on a new 2 year campus living requirement. I know this turns a lot of students away but at the same time statistics show that people who are more involved do better. The dorms are also bigger than any other college I have visited.

Everything has worked out for me going into my sophomore year
Sorry, there are no reviews.
