Westmont College does a fantastic job of combing academics, spiritual growth, and social activity. The Christ-centered learning promotes a kind and encouraging student body. While there is not great diversity at Westmont, the staff and student government does an excellent job of promoting diversity awareness and celebration of other cultures. I am extremely grateful that I chose to attend Westmont, and I would highly encourage other students to consider the college.
Review Your College
The experience at Westmont has been amazing! Great community, great courses and staff. Although the courses are tough it pushes me to be a better student and it has.
This is a very wonderful school in which you are encouraged to become your own person and discover your own voice. The faculty and staff are really great people, and the students form a close and supportive community. Your professors are extremely accessible and easy to talk to, and they make time to get to know you and help you with your homework if you need it. The one thing that could be better is the food in the Dining Commons.
