WesternU is a vibrant fusion of the iconic pines and palms of the west coast. The warm urban atmosphere of the California campus is studded with palm trees and bustles with the traffic and trends of stylish SoCal living. The rugged rural location of the Oregon campuses boasts the towering pines, crystal rivers and snowcapped peaks of an adventurous Pacific Northwest lifestyle. Sister colleges mirrored on each campus offer students the opportunity to contrast cultures, such as the morning commute for California students navigating 8-lane freeway traffic and Oregon students dodging tractors on the backroads. Together, these campuses span the western borders of America to recruit and return health science professionals to the communities where they came from and where they are needed most.
