I like the old-school feel of the campus. The architecture of the buildings and beauty of the campus grounds really enhances the atmosphere of the whole college experience. Because the Montessori philosophy espouses the prepared environment as the most essential element for a child's learning and growth, I feel Westminster provides that kind of environment where learning can take place.

Overall Rating

Westminster is diverse. I have been happy here but often miss the opportunities and relationships that come with fraternity life. Since I am from the south, I also mourn the absence of football. Football is such a huge part of college life for many. The outdoor life that salt lake provides many fun activities.
