In my opinion Westminster College -New Wilmington is a very nice and small school. The people are very nice and will hold open doors for you, The Professors are very willing to help you in anyway they possibly can. They would like to see you succeed. Everyone on campus is super nice and very helping if you ever need anything. The health center is always there if you ever need anything they are amazing in there. Overall a very nice campus and would recommend to anyone.
Im glad I decided to attend school here, I love it. The people are amazing and always nice, we hold doors for eachother. The food at time's is not the greatest but the pizza down the block is amazing. Its a very small town which I love and only a short distance from larger towns, its also only about 2hrs to pitsburgh.
Westminster is a very beautiful campus. The students are so kind and always willing to help. The professors know you by your name and not some number, and they are easy to approach and willing to answer any questions that you may have. There are also so many different organizations on campus, so there is no way that you could ever be bored on campus. No matter what, there is always someone on campus that you can talk to whether it be a faculty member or a student.
I truly love Westminster because of the professors and their passion for their students. Every class I have taken as an English major is thought provoking and gives you great pride in the campus. Greek life is something that really makes it hard to go to school here, but I have found things to replace that hole in my college life.

A small libral arts college with the amish near but with many different things to do such as greek life, sports, and extracurricuar activities.
The worst thing would have to be the location. I love that it is in the middle of no where when it comes to needing quiet for studying and so on. But at the same time the location leads to a lot of partying for many students because late at night; especially on the weekends, there is little to do and a lot of the student body goes hom.
I like to talk about the close-knit community at my school. We have a bustling social atmosphere here with a lot of clubs, groups and fraternities/sororities students can be involved in. There is usually a lot going on here and there many oppurtunities to gather and socialize while attending events like football or basketball games, charity events and off-campus trips.
The students at Westminster are very helpful, and we tend to bounce ideas off one another to help better understand ideas and concepts.
The small class sizes because the professor is always there to help
I wish I would have known more about on campus activities and weekend activities.
The type of person wo should not attend Wetminster College is someone who is looking for a big school in a big city. The college is located in a scenic part of Pennsylvania and there is not a lot of activities that are going on besides for those that are sponsored by the campus itself. Also, if you do not want to have a close relationship with teachers and would rather teach yourself Westminster College is not for you. Lastly, if you would rather not get involved in on cmapus activities this is not the place for you.
Westminster is known for its small, friendly, home-like atmosphere.
Anyone who wants to put in the time and effort needed to achieve a well-rounded and beneficial education. Anyone who like small class sizes with friendly professors who are glad to help out in any way they can.
Start the process early. Westminster is extremely competitive and there are students on a wait list. Take time to fill out the application to the best of your ability and write your essay early so you have time to proofread it several times and make adjustments. If you're accepted, make sure you read your inquiry book the summer before you come to school; you'll get much more out of your inquiry class if you're well preparred. Also, be invloved in high school. Westminster values students that are civically engaged and give back to their community.
Westminster College provides opportunities to explore areas of study not typically available to students of a particular major. As a student at Westminster, I was able to venture to areas outside of my Elementary Education major to learn about history, art, and science. Westminster's liberal arts studies is different from that of other colleges' because curriculums are integrated with each other. The faculties of Westminster support and encourage students to expand our learning opportunities and discover how we can incorporate them into our desired future career path.
For someone not involved in Greek Life, the weekend can be quite slow. Usually for me, I use Saturday mornings to sleep in, as well as spend time with my friends. Saturday evenings are spent getting ready to attend frat houses, and going out with my group of people. We usually stay out until the parties close, and then my friends and I go back to the dorms to make mac & cheese. Sunday mornings all of my friends and I eat brunch at Duff, where they have amazing omelettes. Then, we spend Sunday afternoons/evenings going to the grocery store and studying.
