A Welcome from Rachel, GISA President

Rachel ChaeHi! My name is Heesu, but many people around campus know me as Rachel! I was born in Korea with a Korean father and a Korean-American mother, giving me unique experiences from both American and Korean perspectives. College is a challenging and formative time for many people and I was no exception. Westmont had me face questions about my identity, faith, and beliefs. However, I'm so grateful that I did not have to face thesse challenges alone at Westmont. I am blessed to have met dedicated professors, devoted staff, and life-long friends to guide me through my personal journey. We would now like to extend a similar hand of guidance to you!
