Request Campus Visit
Western welcomes and encourages students to visit any of our locations prior to enrolling. If you are already enrolled at the College, we encourage you to participate in the campus tour that is part of New Student Orientation.
We encourage prospective students to participate in a program shadow. Program Shadows give incoming students an opportunity to see their program areas, learn about Western’s academic environment, and interact with college students and faculty.
Program shadows have ended for the fall term. Classes at Western end on December 12th. Program shadows will be available mid- January for the spring term.
