Wide Awake and Dreaming

Weber State University was founded in the same century that American philosopher Henry David Thoreau encouraged everyone to advance confidently in the direction of their dreams. Weber has taken that advice to heart, inviting students of all ages and from all walks of life, to bring their dreams to us. We believe in the power of dreams, in their ability to transform lives, families and entire communities.

Since 1889, the core of the Weber State experience has been outstanding teaching and mentoring. Our faculty’s commitment to forging one-on-one relationships with eager students is legendary.

As we celebrate our 125th anniversary, Weber State proudly acknowledges its role in propelling generations of bright students to promising futures. We believed then, and we believe now, that no dream is beyond a student’s reach. With their hard work and our academic preparation, WSU graduates can go anywhere and become anything.

Today, we seek to secure this model of student success for the decades ahead.

That’s why we’re embarking on Dream 125: The Campaign for Weber State. Combining our strengths and aspirations with your generosity and vision, WSU will remain an invaluable asset to the local, national and global economy, fueled by unprecedented levels of energy, opportunity and sophistication.
