A new life is out there.

People come here because they're looking for something. For them it's not about packing up the car and going to a different town. For them it's about discovery. What they find is a challenge—something unexpected—that opens up new frontiers. When you come here, you'll find there are frontiers already inside you, just waiting to be found. Those discoveries will be explored with new friends and by looking at things in new ways. Go West. Discover. Explore. This is one of America's great universities. A lot of people who have become successful—skilled, happy, wealthy and powerful—started by heading West.
