Overall a very nice campus and would recommend to anyone.

makenzie - 02/04/2021

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.

Kiana - 06/23/2020

Very nice, small college/campus in a rural area. The teachers are all very friendly and care about the class and their students. The campus is easy to navigate. They have a variety of on-campus eating with some nice local places to eat nearby within walking distance. The only potential downside is that there is not an option for off-campus housing. The only way to commute is if your parents or guardians live within a certain mile radius of the college. That being said, they do offer apartment style housing on campus.

Courtney - 05/09/2020

I loved attending Westminster, and can't imagine having gone anywhere else. Though it is small, I find this to be an advantage because professors know your name and are eager to help you. The community of Westminster is incomparable. Greek life is prominent on campus, but no hard feelings are held between greeks/non-greeks. I had friends in all groups. Sports are also prominent. You look left, right, and down before you cross the street (amish horse poop), you hold the door for the people behind you (the Westminster Way), you tell the time by the bell tower, and you're always a Titan.

  4. What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

    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.

  12. What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

    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.

  13. Here's your chance: Say anything about your college!

    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.

  14. Describe a typical weekend.

    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.
