Meet Our Student Team

The StARs!

Student Admissions Representatives (StARs) serve as ambassadors for Western. These students represent a variety of academic programs and extracurricular interests, but they all have one thing in common: they are enthusiastic when it comes to working with prospective Western students and their families. They help students navigate the college search process by sharing their own personal experiences, leading campus tours and offering helpful admissions tips.
