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.
If you are interested in participating in a program shadow, please complete the Program Shadow Request Form. We will provide you with the contact information to schedule your program shadow.
Western program shadows are availble February 1, 2016 – April 8, 2016, for most programs while classes are in session.
