So we took a trip to Gunnison and stopped in for tour of Western while we
were out there. I was impressed. They have a brand new STEM building/facilities. Avg class size is 20 -- even for Freshmen. All classes are taught by Profs (not TA's). And a Prof sat down with my kid for an hour and a half and answered all his questions and really bonded with him. Prof was probably in his early 30's -- just really impressive guy. Kid thinks Gunnison is too rural though.
