Meet Zelmya Taylor. This incoming student from Pasadena, California, realized she wanted to attend Westmont when she visited campus. “I went to the STEM weekend, stayed in the dorms, and met professors and other students and staff. Everyone was so welcoming and personable, and I decided that Westmont would be one of my top choices.”
One experience wasn’t enough. “I came for Admitted Student Days to experience an actual class session and see what campus life was like during the school year. I attended a chapel service, sat in on a chemistry class, and even took the shuttle into Santa Barbara to hang out at the beach with the student hosting me. After these visits, I could really see myself at Westmont, and I knew I wanted to attend.”
Zelmya can’t wait to start college at Westmont in the fall. “I’m so excited to begin the next chapter of my life and to meet new people, experience being away from home in the dorms, and live with other college students who share my love for the Lord. I’m excited to learn more about myself as I earn my biology degree and continue my passion for helping the community by volunteering with the many organizations on campus.”
Still deciding on a college? Zelmya has some advice, “I realized that the schools I was considering, although fine, did not give me the feeling of “home” that Westmont did. Also, ask the Lord to close doors that should be closed and continue to open doors to opportunities meant for you. This is what I did and why I’m so excited to begin at Westmont in the fall. I hope to see you all there as well!”
