Why Westminster?
My father graduated from Westminster in 1979 which is how I was introduced to this college. Each summer my family goes down to the lake with a few of my dad's fraternity brothers and their families and I always hear amazing stories of their college experience so I decided to tour the school. My first visit on campus I knew it was my dream college and I started my application that day. I chose Westminster College because of the compassion the professors have for not only their students but also the subjects they are teaching.  
Where do you see yourself after graduation and how is Westminster helping you get there? 
After graduation I see myself going to school to become a Physician Assistant. I know Westminster is helping me get there through the challenging coursework I have received in each class. 
What is your favorite class and why?
My favorite class so far was my seminar class. It was called "On The Trail To Human Disease" with Dr. Mayne. We had the opportunity to look into the history and evolution of different diseases. 
What is currently your fondest ‘Westminster’ memory? 
My fondest 'Westminster' memory so far would be going on the "Biology in Belize" trip this past summer. During the spring semester the class participants took a seminar course where we learned everything about Belize including the history, politics, culture, land usage, animals, fish, insects, and so much more. It was amazing to be able to put what we learned in class to use out in the field. If you have the opportunity to study abroad, I strongly recommend going for it. 
What Motivates You? 
The thought of the future motivates me. I am excited to see what the future holds for me which pushes me to work hard so I can achieve my goals. 
Advice to an incoming student:
Don't be afraid to reach out to your professors for help. Your professors will be more than happy to sit down with you to make sure you understand the content and will keep helping you until you do.

Why Westminster?
Westminster gave me the best opportunity for the field that I am going in to. I enjoy the small class sizes and the one-on-one attention that you get from your professors. Not only does the small school size help in the classroom, but also with connections that you make. It is very easy to meet new people and make lasting friendships on this campus. 
Where do you see yourself after graduation and how is Westminster helping you get there?
After graduation I see myself going on to Dental School. Westminster is preparing me by providing the classes that I need and pushing me to get involved on campus. My professors push me to do my very best and that will be very helpful in the long run. 
What is your favorite class and why?
My favorite class so far has been Biological Processes. I wasn't sure how I would feel about taking this class initially, but I am very glad that I did. It dug deep into the different processes seen in biology and gave me an entirely different perspective on biology and the world around us. It helped me to appreciate the inner workings of life so much more.
What is currently your fondest ‘Westminster’ memory?
My fondest memory thus far was being able to take part in the inauguration of Dr. Akande. Being in the choir during this event was truly breath-taking. To see the entire student body come together as one was fantastic. It truly made me feel at home with the Westminster family.
What Motivates You?
My parents, friends, and family 
Advice to an incoming student:
Get involved on campus as soon as you possibly can. I struggled a lot at the beginning of my first semester and I contribute that mostly to the fact that I wasn't involved. Make sure that if there is an organization you seem like you would enjoy that you go for it. Also don't be afraid to talk to the people around you. Everyone is going to be coming into this situation just like you. This is probably the first time that most of you have been away from home for an extended period of time. Talk to your suite mates and others around you. You never know when you might end up meeting your best friend.
