Western State Colorado University


One of the greatest assets of the Crested Butte and Gunnison area is Western State Colorado University. Founded in 1901 as an institution for teachers, the school now boasts a wide variety of liberal arts majors. Given its location in an area with a wide array of recreational activities, majors include Outdoor Education and Resort Management. For those of us living here, we benefit from not only a vibrant college community, but also from continuing education opportunities that are only available in towns with a strong educational anchor.
