Student Life

Student Life at WesternU College of Optometry is amplified by the beautiful weather and abundance of local attractions. While on campus there are many ways to stay involved, lead and be a part of the community. During Orientation Week students are sorted into WUCO HOUSES! From day one you jump right into a friendly house competition and continue the fun the whole way through. Your house designation will follow you through Commencement. Below is a snapshot of the fun!
