Fairhaven College welcomes visitors! Please join us at the Fairhaven College Information Session at 1:30pm in FA 348.


As one of the seven colleges that comprise Western, Fairhaven provides nearly 400 students with an innovative, interdisciplinary approach to learning within a major state university. At Fairhaven, students take an active role in the design and content of their education. Our classes consist of 15 to 20 students which promote close working relationships with faculty and the exploration of new ideas within a supportive educational structure. Narrative evaluations replace traditional letter grades for Fairhaven courses. We are also home to the Center for Law, Diversity and Justice. During Western Fall Welcome, you are invited to take a guided tour of Fairhaven between 11:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. and learn more about the Adventure Learning Grant, the Outback and the other opportunities at Fairhaven!
