  • I am accepted here and planning to attend soon

    I grew up in a small town so I have never like big cities! Dillon is small but bigger than my home town which is perfect for me! It's the perfect size to make lots of new friends and not be overwhelmed as a freshman with too many people.

    I love being here at Western! Dillon is a great small town, and if you don't need anything like clothes, then Dillon has almost everything you need. Starbucks, Safeway and Subway!! It's a cute town, and everyone in town seems really nice. The campus is nice, even though it's pretty small, but that's really nice when it's COLD outside and you have to walk to class. The dorms are pretty standard, nothing amazing, but nothing horrible either. There are a lot of different clubs you can get involved in, and we have a great Equestrian team, and a great Rodeo team. I'm on the equestrian team, and I'm having SO much fun! I'm learning a lot, competing successfully and making great friends.
