International Students - Westminster College - Fulton, Missouri
At Westminster, we pride ourselves on being a close, caring community that engages, inspires and educates all that pass through our historic Columns. Our Mission and purpose is to develop young men and women to be leaders in a global community. We understand that leadership development is the hallmark and purpose of a liberal arts education.
For the past 150 years, we have prepared Westminster students to think critically and creatively about the complex challenges that they will face in the world. What happens in Jiangsu, China affects what happens in Fulton, Missouri. That is why we encourage our students to get involved with clubs, organizations, athletics and community service opportunities to help shape their experience while at Westminster. We know that learning does not just take place in the four walls of a classroom, but everywhere!
One of just many unique aspects to Westminster is that not only do we understand the world in which we live, but we have the world on our campus with well over 160 international students from 78 countries represented. So I can assure you that you will not be alone and isolated, but integrated, engaged and embraced by the Westminster community. With a student to faculty ratio of 14 to 1 you will also know and interact with your professors from the very first day. Even better than this, you will establish relationships with your professors that you will take with you for life. This is not just a statement, but a proven fact with Westminster ranked in the top 10% among US Universities for student-faculty interactions and enriching experiences.
At Westminster College you will be challenged! From this challenge you will grow, develop and be inspired in ways you never imagined. Our students go on to live lives of success, significance and service. We hope that you will join us and become one of them!
