A Lasting Impact 

Weber State values High Impact Educational Experiences (HIEEs). This event is designed to allow students to engage and form connections: with each other, with WSU staff and faculty, with the nature surrounding Ogden. We hope that students who participate in Experience Weber have the opportunity to engage with learning outcomes, such as *meaningful interactions, diverse and inclusive experiences, and personal investment.

*See WSU HIEE Taxonomy
