Wetterau Hall was named in 1978 after Mrs. Edna Wetterau Miller and her son Ted of the Class of 1951. Ted served on the Board and Edna’s grandsons, Mark and Conrad, also attended Westminster. This family line will now forever live in Westminster’s history.Ben RobertsMajor:

I am able to explore my diverse range of interests. The quality of the education at Westminster is better compared to many small liberal arts colleges. What is your favorite class and why?
Ancient & Greek Philosophy as well as Modern Philosophy. Both these classes challenged certain assumptions and made me see things in an entirely new light. Who is your favorite professor and why?
Having taken many classes from professors in different areas of interest, I have really liked majority of the professors I’ve had. Not only do they have a genuine interest in their subject but they are passionate about communicating this to the students. Favorite foods?
Beans and Rice apparently.Favorite place on campus and why?
The group study rooms on the third floor provides me refugee from all the distractions on campus. It is perfect for either study, relaxation or a combination of both. Another place is the view from the hill between Newhman hall and Westminster hall. It is very beautiful.Advice to an incoming student:
Be careful what you say and what you do, though there is always a chance for redemption. Concentrate your forces to whatever purpose you are set to achieve. Be willing to learn, even from those different from you. Question, doubt, but don’t stop believing!Clubs and Organizations:

I was officially sold on coming to Westminster my senior year of high school when I made a list of 50+ questions. Westminster happened to be the only college that answered all of my questions the way I wanted to hear.What is your favorite class and why?
Teaching Art & Music. It is an amazing and fun course. You test out all the arts, crafts, and songs that you might use in the classroom as a teacher. Who is your favorite professor and why?
Dr. Aulgur. She is very knowledgeable about education and what it takes to be a great teacher. She is a great mentor.Favorite foods?
Chinese food, especially chicken and broccoli. Favorite place on campus and why?
English Garden in front of the Chapel. I love to go down there and reset my batteries. It is a great place to enjoy nature and focus on homework.Advice to an incoming student:
Make sure to take care of yourself. If you don't take some time out of the week for yourself, you will get lost in the shuffle and your studies, social life, and your health might suffer. College is really about finding a balance.Clubs and Organizations:
