Why Western?

The Video

You know what they say…all work and no play, or at least the opportunity to play, make for dull and boring friends.  The opportunities to take your recreational self to another level, while getting your education, abound at Western…

A note:  All of the scenes are shot within minutes of the Western campus, except the snow stuff at Mt. Baker, which is less than an hour away.  And there are some scenes from the National Collegiate 7′s tournament at Texas A&M, College Station, Texas last fall.
