I am a retired government employee who is entering Western as a freshman this fall. Most of my questions have been answered via email with Western staff and volunteers. The Western website has been a wealth of information as well, and I have performed extensive research there in pursuit of answers. The orientation was fun and brief. It was nice to put faces with the names of Western staff, and it was obvious that everyone has a strong desire to help students succeed. While I may not have the concerns and questions that someone fresh out of high school might have, I can say that I will start classes on Monday morning with all of my questions resolved.
I really enjoyed family weekend. We did the canvas& cocktails & I think they should have chosen a simpler picture & given step by step directions. Not everyone has painted before. Overall it was a fun weekend!
