Westmont College Reviews
Student life was really revolving around the community on campus. It's not a party scene at all, but I was not looking for that. It is a strong Christian school with a campus living statement.
I enjoyed my academics, although I pursued a liberal studies degree and was in a different track with credential program as well, but I found the academics enjoyable and very manageable. My professors were caring, available and very highly qualified.
Santa Barbara is GORGEOUS and there are amazing beaches, nice quaint downtown, incredible Mexican food and mountains to explore nearby. It's a great small city, near LA.
Overall, I loved my time at Westmont. I got a great degree, grew in my faith, and made amazing friends in a fabulous, tight-knit, caring community.
