Let’s face it—beginning any kind of study at a new school can be an overwhelming experience. I’ve been studying at Weber State for nearly two years and still find buildings that I didn’t know existed. For that reason, here’s a list of some of the buildings of WSU that you’ll become familiar with if you are new to campus and a refresher for those who are coming back.
