    We are Westminster College, nestled within the charming town of New Wilmington, just one hour north of Pittsburgh. We study hard, priding ourselves in strong academics, outstanding faculty, and individualized attention with our 11:1 student to faculty ratio. We encourage participation, sponsoring 22 varsity sports, 18 honor societies, and more than 80 clubs. We provide the independence to think and participate in what’s most important to you.  

    In addition to our work outside the formal classroom is our pledge to ensure that education does not stop at the classroom doors. To this end, we work very closely with faculty across the campus to link curricular and extracurricular life in a seamless bond. Honors floors in the residence halls, thematic living experiences, leadership development, a summer reading program, PEERS health education programs, and a host of other experiences are just a few of the ways in which we engage students in the College's holistic "co-curriculum."
