Are you a best-fit Westmont student?

They value unique perspectives, backgrounds, talents, and knowledge. They believe in a well-informed and well-tested Christian faith. They are unafraid to ask and answer difficult or uncomfortable questions. They seek vocation, significance, community, and justice. They strive to model a life of service, leadership, and impact.
