My son just completed his first year at Westminster. He has found his people, his place and his purpose. Westmo was suggested by his high school advisor. It's small, private, and has a strong sense of community. He has grown so much socially and academically. The size of Westmo promotes a learning experience not available at a larger school. The students are known and challenged with the support they need to meet the challenge. The school's history with Winston Churchill sets a tone of leadership and service.

The students are happy there. I found this a little surprising becuase the town itself is very underwhelming. There is a sense of belonging yet not a prevailing "type" of student. It's very inclusive in that regard and surprisingly international. My son's roommate was from the United Kingdom.

Westmo was able to pivot quickly to online teaching which worked well with the small class sizes. Returning to a small campus in a small town feels reassuring in light of COVID-19.

The school size is small and this means it easy to connect with other students and professors. The professors also have great care about students and their academic performance. The school facilities are great. In addition, the local town offers a lot of fun things to do as well as great restaurants. The school hosts a lot of diverse panels for all fields that promote student professional development. The housing and the meals are great. The school uses up to date technology and students receive a free iPad when they start school. The campus is also safe. The college also offers an academic curriculum that is rigorous.
Westminster was not really what I expected. I wanted a small liberal arts school in the Midwest and liked their global leadership program. What I have experienced at Westmo has exceeded my expectations, changed my life, and introduced me to life long friends. The school is about 1/3 smart, ambitious students preparing for grad school, 1/3 average students from high performing high schools, and 1/3 athletes in both of those categories (or average students from average schools). I am average, however the small classes and being known to my professors has given me confidence and accountability. Fulton, MO is a boring, small town. There is another college in town that we are social with and our campus life is fun. I am wasn't really "a joiner" in high school, but Westmo is small and pulls everyone in. I went Greek and have friends in various groups and grade levels.
