3 College Freshman

Diversity: There are a lot of people with differing views, but this is a Christian school where many people come from similar backgrounds and have similar beliefs.

2 College Freshman

Diversity: There is very little diversity on campus.

2 College Sophomore

Diversity: haha, I am an Asian American and I am one of the few ethnically different. Almost everybody is Caucasian, and there isn't anything wrong with it but just something to know. Diversity is not an attribute of Westmont College. But Westmont tries to incorporate other cultures and keep a diverse culture.

3 College Freshman

Diversity: Little racial and economic diversity. Mediocre political diversity.

Diversity: They Like to Call Themselves Diverse – Although Westmont likes to call themselves diverse, the majority of students are white or hawaiian. Rumor has it that the teaching staff doesn't even believe in diversity of their staff because "the Bible doesn't say we need diversity". Needless to say, these things are a little concerning.
