1 College Freshman

Party Scene: The parties at the off campus seniors' houses were pretty horrible.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Everything is overpriced on State Street, which is pretty much the only place to go.

1 College Freshman

Administration: The administration is a joke.

2 College Freshman

Scholarships: The staff is basically incompetent. You basically have to figure things out yourself.

1 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Dorms are absolutely disgusting. They look like they are cleaned once a month, if that.

4 College Sophomore

Party Scene: Nothing on campus at Westmont, but there is plenty of that happening in Isla Vista

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Between State Street and Milpas areas there are plenty of options

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: It's alright. Could be worse.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: on campus housing pros: close to classes, student community/dorm life is very fun, many dorm sponsored activities and events, friendly people in dorm section

cons: no very much parking near dorm, old dorm buildings, expensive

3 College Freshman

Diversity: There is diversity, but not a ton.

5 College Freshman

Academics: The education is worth the price tag.

5 College Freshman

Academics: The professors know their stuff, and because classes are small, it is impossible to slack of and still get an A. Most teachers have attendance grades.

5 College Freshman

Campus Quality: Westmont is updating buildings every year, and the campus is gorgeous. We have a mountain and ocean view.

5 College Freshman

Local Area: There's no place like Santa Barbara.

5 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Everyone is friendly and approachable, and even if there are more girls than guys, there is no shortage of attractive guys!

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Westmont is unique, and the best place for me.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Westmont isn't for everyone - but for those it suits, it is the most incredible experience.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: We have a very active alumni network, and our office of life planning has many connections and is willing to work with each student individually for any length of time.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: The campus is incredibly safe and supportive. It's easy to be seen at the health center, and the doctor is knowledgable and helpful in most cases. The health center is only open M-F in the day, so it isn't available when people need it the most - weekends and the middle of the night.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: For an NAIA school, we have high quality athletics. We win many conference championships, and regularly go to nationals in almost every sport. The fields and gym are very nice, but the workout room is crowded and has very few machine options.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: There aren't many options that are right by campus, unless you rent a room in a home. But, living off-campus provides many up sides (such as skipping out on the meal plan). It is hard to get permission to live off-campus, because Westmont has a cap on the number of students allowed to live off-campus.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Santa Barbara has endless food options, from pizza parlors, to vegan caf├ęs, to the highest dining.

5 College Freshman

Administration: They enforce the rules whenever there is a violation, but the enforcers aren't overbearing. They don't go looking for people breaking the rules, but if an RA or staff member sees something, the offender will be reprimanded. The rules are clear, and everyone signs the community life statement, and if they break the rules they are breaking a contract with the school.

5 College Freshman

Scholarships: There are ample scholarships available, and most people find that they are able to pay for Westmont. Westmont offered me the most financial aid of any college I was accepted to.

2 College Freshman

Campus Food: They do their best to accommodate those with dietary restrictions, but there are very limited options and it gets boring. It's operated by Sodexo, which means the meals are overpriced and many are unhealthy. Organic foods are only available on Farm Fresh Friday, and even then it is only one lunch option.
