I choose to attend Westminster because it felt like home. The staff, students, and even the buildings and surrounding town seemed to welcome me with open arms. Also, I always imagined myself at a college with a strong sense of community, and I always observed and admired Westminster's amazing sense of community when I was on campus.
My favorite place at Westminster is anywhere alongside Lake Brittain. It is a beautiful, peaceful, and scenic spot to sit and study or hang out with friends.
I have learned many valuable lessons from the faculty, my fellow students, and just life at Westminster in general that have prepared me for life after college. I have learned how to have meaningful conversations, how to communicate with people effectively, and how to be proactive and take leadership. I have learned that I am not just a body among the masses, and have learned that my voice and opinion are important. I have also learned how to project these things with confidence. I believe these are useful skills to use not only in the job that I will have after college but also in my daily life from today on. Westminster has also set an amazing example to be of how to be a part of community, and that is important because after college, I will be a part of many different communities, such as my place of work, home, and community.
