Spring Sing

Each year, in Westmont’s oldest tradition, students compete on behalf of their residence halls in this talent extravaganza. Each act features innovative songs, drama, and dancing as students strive for the coveted honor of winning Sweepstakes and a place in Westmont lore. With hilarious side acts to complement the house shows as well as surprise hosts and cameo appearances by favorite faculty and staff, Spring Sing is the can’t-miss event of the year!
