Fodor's Review

The school announces its presence with a massive "W" embedded into the side of nearby Tenderfoot Mountain. This liberal arts and sciences college started out as a combined high school and college in 1901, became Western State College in 1923, and changed its name to Western State Colorado University in 2012. It's home to about 2,400 students.
