3 College Freshman

Diversity: There is diversity, but not a ton.

4 College Freshman

Diversity: Everyone is very different and unique in their own personal way.

2 Recent Alumnus

Diversity: Some political opinion diversity, but that's about as far as it goes. Very homogenous student body racially, ethnically, and in spiritual beliefs. But it is a very small Christian school of only about 1300 students so you have to take that into account, too.

2 College Sophomore

Diversity: Westmont College is not very diverse. Most students are white, middle to upper class, conservative, christian, and heterosexual. There are very marginal differences in our student body.

2 College Junior

Diversity: Not enough diversity or acceptance of diversity
