2 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The food and housing is expensive, everything is outdated, the washing machines don't work, they won't dry your clothes and your clothes smell sour. The bathrooms are horrifying - sooo dirty. I was happy to see they cleaned the dorm carpets in the main areas at spring break, made it smell much better.

Athletics: We are a NAIA school, we have a number of teams that have won the NAIA championship, but the school does not focus or help any scheduling for athletes at the school. It's main focus is academic.

Overall Experience: My school is a private Christian school, it is very isolated and as I learn and embrace my Christianity the comments from professors and students does not make me feel very Christian and if you have any different viewpoint regarding Christianity then it seems that you are ostracized.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: There are moments of school spirit at Westmont. People like to attend the baseball, soccer, and basketball games from time to time. The girls Volleyball team is really good. Athletics isn't really emphasized at this school but if you find yourself bored, it wouldn't hurt to go to one of the games.

Overall Experience: Westmont's academics are challenging and good. However, I'm not satisfied with the social atmosphere with this school since I don't seem to fit in. Sadly this school has made me doubt Christ more than ever which was not what I intended when coming in. People are very friendly, maybe too friendly here at times. Westmont is on top of a hill near the mountains and it feels as though you are separated from society. I'm not happy here but many people love it here which is great!

Overall Experience: Some of the professors had no personalities, they were so bland it made it hard to stay interested in the topic they were discussing.

2 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I felt that Westmont College was not very accepting. I was not able to choose the school of my choice, therefore I had to attend a religious school. Keeping in mind that I am not religious, my review is biased in this way. I was always a good kid growing up. When I came to Westmont, I was perceived as a "bad kid" and "rebel" since I drank and went out on the weekends. I am not a crazy party person, but when I was at Westmont I felt like I might as well have been doing hard drugs. The students overall do not accept you unless you are a committed Christian. There are pockets of kids who do, but they are few and not popular. I felt judged and "pitied" because I did not share the same beliefs as the majority of the students. I wanted to like the school; It's a beautiful campus in an incredible location, but the unaccepting community (students and staff) caused me to transfer.

Overall Experience: I was very concerned about how I would feel in college and how people would treat me. I have been bullied my whole life because of who I am and I feared that college would be the same. Westmont blew my mind in the best way! Everyone that works there and attends are all so loving and accepting of everyone! I have made friends that I know we'll be friends far past graduation and the teachers are always there for you! I would defiantly pick Westmont again, I highly recommend to anyone looking for a Christian based private college (that accepts all denominations of Christianity as well as non-Christians) full of wonderful and loving faculty, staff and students!!!

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.
