for success

Welcome! Western Connecticut State University is proud of our academic programs that empower your future and lead to your success. You’ll find an outstanding learning environment in our small class sizes taught by inspired — and inspiring — faculty.

Our students learn and practice the soft skills employers look for (such as leadership, teamwork and time management) while having fun in over 75 student clubs and organizations.

You also create lasting memories with lifelong friends — from on-campus jazz concerts and open mic nights to Homecoming Week and WCSU’s Annual WestFest.

Continue playing your high school sport in one of our many clubs and intramural teams, or as one of our NCAA Division III athletes winning on the field (or court, or pool).
