Shadow Program

Jump into September!

Here’s your opportunity to be a college student for a day.

Students entering WCSU for the Fall 2016 semester are invited, at no cost, to shadow a current Western student through classes in the school of study that you are interested in. You’ll meet with instructors, check out our cafeteria food, residence halls, athletic facilities, computer labs- and certainly our classrooms- to get a feel for what your Western experience will be!

Western's “shadow” program is intended to familiarize you with the ins and outs, where-to-go’s and what-to-do’s that are bound to come up when you start your first semester. Be the person who knows the lay of the land when you arrive for good this fall. 

If you have any questions please contact Francesa Testa at testaf@wcsu.edu

Please register today!

Please contact the office of admissions for other campus visit opportunities. Accepted students are invited to attend accepted students day on Aprill 9.
