The professors at Westmont College feel the need to teach their students and will provide them with methods to understand the concepts being taught in their classes. The dorms on campus are generally quiet, there is not much of a party scene. The food is edible, but it's not too great on a regular basis. There is also much lack of artificial light during the night time, and it gets slightly difficult to get around campus when walking in the dark for whatever reason.
For some, Westmont College in Montecito, California is ideal and wonderful. Unfortunately, that was not my experience for a variety of reasons. If you are interested in a school with a diverse student body and faculty, this is not the school for you. A common joke is the stereotypical Westmont student who is white, middle class, naturally beautiful, a very strong (and outwardly visible) Christian, incredibly peppy and nice, likes granola and other healthy foods, wears Birkenstocks, and has a hammock. It sounds insane, but that is the "ideal" that is championed at this school, and if you don't fit that, it can be really hard to fit in. Westmont is religious and does expect its students to adhere to a certain lifestyle which is fine, except it discriminates against the LGBTQ+ community and other religions.
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 Westmont College
I love Westmont College. It is a spirit led community focused on developing well rounded individuals. The professors really care about students and it is a wonderful community
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.
The overall experience at this school is great because I am not just another student among many.
This school has a decent career center on the campus.
This school is overall pretty safe. I do have to take precaution sometimes.
The location of the campus housing is very wonderful.
There are many different athletics to join at this school.
Because my school is small, there is a tight community among students.
i haven't heard of anyone being without a job
Im in love with everything about westmont
there hasn't been a time i felt unsafe
living on campus makes it easier to be plugged in
Ultimately the RA and RD could not fix issues be it roommate issues or facilities issues
I don't have any input here
Review Westmont College
As the levels of scholarships rise :-) , they only give the higher amounts to incoming students :-( . I guess they've decitded that they already have you, so they don't need to treat you fairly.
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.
You get the best connections at westmont
