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. You will have an opportunity to tour your program facilities, meet with an instructor, and talk to students to find out what it is like to be a student at Western. If you are interested in a program shadow, complete the Program Shadow Request Form. We will provide you with the contact information to schedule the program shadow.
