Western State of Colorado is a four year college which helped me to better my educational goals and myself. The college is situated in altitude and is a very great place for those with an interest in fitness and new experiences. People in the college town of about 5,000 people are friendly and are also very supportive of students within the area.If you are going to be studying any of environmental or fitness field this is for sure a good pick for college and a four year degree.

Western was a great place to get a cheap degree. I graduated in three years with no student loan debt. The theater department, at the time, had a phenomenal technical director and a small group of similarly dedicated students, which really helped the program.
