    Westminster College is a great college! All of the staff and teachers are amazing, kind, and helpful. The registrar is very helpful in creating a class schedule that is flexible to my current work schedule. Everyone that I have met is awesome and always willing to help!

    Westminster is a small school that offers an elite education. Professors know you and your goals while providing you with great expertise. Westminster also features an expansive alumni network that students are encouraged to take advantage of. Facilities are becoming excellent as they are being upgraded! Still school is great
    I like thats in a tight knit community and its a very nice little town but they can approve the food here. The professors and staff members are very well trained. The dorm rooms are a very nice size but they would be much better if they had air conditioning, i feel that with tution being a pretty high prices the least they can do is air condition our dorm rooms. I love the people here I wish i could the smile on their faces behind the masks. I am in the nursing program and all of my advisors really care about me and my success as a registered nurse. I also love the small town scene here in New Wilmington, its very cozy and great to just walk around to clear your head. The food here could be better, we are not going hungry there is tons of food, the food just poorly made with very little seasonings. I also feel they could clean the bathroom more often, it gets dirty really fast and I think its only cleaned every other day. Overall Westminster has been a great experience so far.
