Welcome to Summer @ Western

Summer @ Western provides the opportunity for students to stick to their graduation timeline by catching up on credits or trying to improve grades in courses. With accelerated courses (six-week or nine-week) students are able to work on credits while still having time to enjoy summer. Campus during summer has a different vibe – it is mellow, but still a hub of activity. 

Classes tend to be smaller during the summer, which means students have more access to professors and get to know their classmates. All the campus resources are available too, but with less people clamoring for their place in line. By taking face-to-face classes and online classes, students are able to save money and earn more credits.

Western is a beautiful campus and spending time here during the summer is a bonus – students can read in between classes at Fisher Fountain or have a study session on Old Main lawn.
