Great college for those wanting a more personal experience. Small class sizes and very helpful professors. Lots to do in the area - hiking, biking, skiing, sporting events, lots of culture events (theatre, galleries, symphony, dance, etc.). Love the small campus with state of the art equipment. Would highly recommend to anyone wanting to attend a smaller, liberal ed. college in a great community.
I have always loved this college! It is what I have been looking for. Smaller classes and such professionalism, you're not just a number. the feeling I get for everyone that I have talked to is that they want you to succeed. The grounds are so well kept and clean and I felt very safe. I am a non traditional student returning to college. I look forward to attending this prestigious school and graduating with honors.
Westminster is a close-knit community. The classes are small, the professors are friendly, and financial aid is almost always available. The small campus allows for a safe environment. Any students seeking support for any reason, whether it is academics, mental health, or financial aid, don't have to look far for help. There are plenty of activities year-round to get involved in, and you'll always have something to do!
Westminster is a very liberal school with small class sizes located in the heart of Salt Lake City. It's a safe haven for very liberal people like me, which isn't something easily found in Utah. Westminster has programs for almost anything you can imagine with a very high emphasis on the performing arts.

Location and learning environment are the most important factors in choosing a college that is the right fit for you. It is important that the area that you will be attending college at has things that interest you around it, whether that be the ocean, large cities, or mountains. Fun outdoors excercise is important to a healthy body and clear mind, and it is essential that you are able to participate in these activites that are fun, social, and benefitial to your health all at the same time. It is imporant that you can find a refuge in nature to escape the stresses of schooling at some point. It is also imporant to be learning together with somewhat like-minded people in an environment where your ideas are respected and listened too. For me a smaller school was benefitial because I have been able to establish stronger relationships with my professors encouraging me to want to do better as well as making it easier and less intimidating to seek assistance.
There are a lot of rich white kids that are here on Daddy's money to play video games and snowboard, and also Mormon kids who weren't quite up to snuff to get into BYU. Stay away fromt hose kids. If you know what to look for, you will find some intellectuals who know what's up. There are also a good deal of Chinese exchange students that you should take the time to get to know.
Solid academic programs, especially in business and science. Small classes make teacher-student relationships very accessible. Class workloads are reasonable.
For what I want to do with my life, I think Westminster was definitely the right choice. I love the size of the campus, my financial aid was generous, and though I've had trouble covering the rest, I do feel that it's worth it.
The stereotypes at Westminster college are, individuals here are wealthy,active, skiers/snowboarders and Caucasian.
The negative stereotypes are not accurate. Westminster is known for its outstanding ski and snowboarding teams, and there are a lot of students who are into those activities.
As far as sports go, the only sport we really have is soccer. Other than that, the main thing people here come for is the winter sports scene.
Our school is extremely diverse for being in Salt Lake city and I love it, I have met so many people and it is one of the few schools with no out of state fees which makes the ratio of instate people to out of state people 50%! So many cool people with great backrounds it makes it all the more special when you meet people that are from the same state you are from especially the same city!
I think the best thing about our school is how helpful the professors are and how willing they are to work with you if you need help.
this is a private college meaning that the tuition can be much higher then other institutions around and that makes it really hard sometimes becuase I have to make sure to work as many hours as possible each week in order to pay for my education
Westminster has one of the best aviation programs in the nation. I will be majoring in aviation operations.
College is a completely different culture. You find yourself in this chaotic frenzy of things going on, things you have to do and large transition from what you know to the clueless. I was always told how different college was but i was independent and didn’t need support in high school to do well so I shrugged it off. I was ignorant. The people, the individual cultures, the activities and the experience are incredible and they will change you for life. It is a new world that is unbelievable, be ready to have your eyes opened & your character shifted.
Any kind of person who just wants to intoxicate themselves through college.
Westminster College combines the aesthetic appeal and easy accessibility of Utah with the feel of an East Coast school. Teachers work with students individually, and because Westminster isn't a university, the quality of teaching is better. The teachers are there for students and because they love to teach. The professors are completely dedicated. I couldn't think of a more perfect school - Westminster has everything!
The most frustrating things at my school is parking; there are not enough parking spots. Getting into classes you need for your major is now hard, because of the student population is growing so fast, the school is not getting more professors to accommodate the growth. Cafeteria is awful, there is only 1 on campus and the selection on entries are constant, need variety.
I brag most about the great skiing and outdoor activites that the wasatch range provides. Moutain bikin, hiking, rock climbing... also i brag about the small class sizes and positive learning environment
Persons attending this school should be prepared to accept challenges with enthusiasm and should come equipped to explore opportunities for personal, social, and academic growth. Those eager to foster new friendships, while working to enhance the campus community, the surrounding neighborhood, and even the nearby city center would also find a comfortable fit here. Hard-working, fun-loving visionaries would have a chance to shine in this setting where an eclectic group of forward-thinking scientists, entrepreneurs, artists, and others regularly pool their resources to motivate one another while creating an exceptionally inspirational atmosphere.
When I tell people I go to Westminster, they often are amazed and mention how nice a school it is and how smart the students are. I believe this stereotype to be accurate as we have an array of students from all over, and some of the best academic programs in Utah.
Almost all my classes at Westminster have been great so far, however, as a chemistry major, my classes are naturally very difficult. Every week in my organic chemistry class we have work in the lab, in which we must write our procedure before hand, answer pre-lab questions, and then spend four hours in the lab. We must then write a post lab, answer post lab questions, and write about chemistry. It is very much work to do, and to finish all the work along with all the work from other classes such as physics and calculus, is like trying to cut down a tree with a feather. The upside is that we have great teachers who are always happy to help us.
Expensive, pretty, and crammed with social relevance.
