Mission of the Residence Life Program
A unique educational opportunity exists within the residential campus community. One of the discoveries you will quickly make is that our residence halls are more than just places to study and sleep. There are opportunities to expand your own personal horizons and college education through involvement in numerous academic, social, cultural, and recreational programs. The community is made up of persons from diverse cultural, socioeconomic, and ethnic backgrounds. This will enable you to meet people and form friendships, which may not have been possible under different circumstances. For this experience to be beneficial and pleasant for everyone, each individual must participate in this community in a positive way.
Your energy, enthusiasm, and leadership will enhance your residential environment. Living together is not always an easy task. It takes a lot of courage, consideration, and responsibility to keep a community functioning at its optimum level. An understanding of and respect for the rights and interests of others is the key to making the residential living experience meaningful to everyone.
The residence life staff is committed to providing an environment that is supportive of and responsive to your needs. Our goal is to provide the highest quality of service to you as a residential student at Westminster. It is our hope that each academic year will be one of growth, challenge, and reward.
