Discover your deeper purpose, in community.
The relationships and experiences we have at Westmont push our faith, expand our knowledge, challenge our beliefs and enable us to use our talents more fully in the service of Christ.
If you become a Westmont Warrior, you will have opportunities outside of the formal classroom setting to contribute to and enjoy this community – through music, clubs, sports, student government, mission trips and residence hall activities, just to name a few. You will find a breadth of difference and diversity as you encounter people and events that are new or unfamiliar.
Westmont's motto, Christus primatum tenens—Christ holds first place—captures the college's commitment to developing deep faith in God. The community gathers three times a week in the name of Jesus Christ to love and learn from Him during chapel.
