    Westminster is a nice, small liberal arts school. It has quality STEM education, especially for women. Most students are prepared for medical/graduate school, however there are limited research opportunities on campus. Neuroscience, for one, is still an underdeveloped field at Westminster. It leans a lot on the Psychology department, and has few useful requirements for the major. There are currently no required Chemistry classes, and only three classes specifically regarding neuroscience that are offered. One of which, is only offered once every four semesters.

    The highlight of Westminster is it's academices, it has some fantastic professors (if not too few at times) and for the most part very informational courses. The campus lacks a bit in parties because of public safety cracking down on townhouse and fraternity parties and there isn't much to do in town otherwise. Even with the party crackdown, campus security still lacks cameras over most of campus and things regularly get stolen. Diversity pretty much only exists in that the sports tems try and recruit diverse teams. The school itself lacks diversity but not for any reason specifically. Its a small, expensive school on a mostly white, very conservative town so diversity obviously is lacking.
    From the first time I toured the campus, I felt at home at Westminster. The overall atmosphere is very nice, and everyone is amicable. From my experience of classes, almost all of the professors are more than willing tot provide extra help, and truly care about the students. I'm also an RA so I know from experience that if a professor notices that a student hasn't been going to class, or that they aren't doing so well they will check in and see if everything is okay. There are very few bad things I could honestly say about Westminster. One is that, second semester especially, everything is very centered around Greek life, so if you are an independent (the sororities cost a small fortune despite not having houses) it can become rather hard. The other thing is that on the weekends the food selection is rather limited on campus. The rest is mostly little things that will vary depending on one's experience.
