How has Westminster prepared you for life after college?

Westminster has given me the skills needed to be successful after college. Through classes here, we are exposed to a variety of necessary skills such as teamwork on lab assignments, communication skills through presentations, and overall presentability. I have also had the privilege to work in the lab with multiple senior students who were working on their capstone research. From this, I have been able to start working on my own research and attempt the publication process.

My favorite place at Westminster is...

the third floor of McKelvey Campus Center. There is this perfect little study nook that overlooks the quad that many students don't utilize. I love going up there to work on homework in a peaceful and scenic environment.

I chose to attend Westminster College because...

being on campus felt like being home. I was introduced to many professors and staff that genuinely care about the students and go out of their way to make sure we succeed. I was also drawn into the welcoming environment in the music department (and the whole school, really) which allowed me to follow both of my passions while here - neuroscience and music.

I'm passionate about...
