3 College Freshman

Academics: Most of the professors really care about you and your understanding of the material. I have had one professor though that wasn't helpful unless you were a genius and a majority of the class failed.

Academics: As a Psychology major at Westmont, there are great opportunities that arise. The faculty in the Psychology department is very experienced in the field of psychology. It is helpful to know that our teachers are knowledgeable in what we are learning so that they can answer our questions with real-world experiences.

Academics: Westmont College is a tough and rigorous school. With the challenging academics offered, along with the workload, Westmont does a great job of offering extra help after class whether it be through office hours, TA's, or student tutors. There is never a reason to feel confused with the multiple, helpful opportunities.

4 College Freshman

Academics: The faculty in the Kinesiology department is superb! They are very careful about designing the major to be holistic because they have seen a lot of success of their students getting into graduate schools. They genuinely care about their students and their health and well-being. Classes are usually pretty interesting. I haven't taken a lot of kinesiology classes yet, but my peers rave about their professors and how great the classes are. The workload is a little more than other majors because it is required to take classes from different aspects of kinesiology instead of focusing on one specific track; this is the holistic approach. I like this approach because I feel more knowledgable and prepared to enter into any career in the health field.
