Students Involvement & Leadership
Campus life at Westminster College consists on more than just going to class and studying in the library. We believe that personal growth is also a fundamental part of college, and we want your experience in here to be the most enriching one possible. The learning you do outside of the classroom is just as integral as your academics.
Westminster students are encouraged to try new things, meet new people, and attend campus and community activities. Below are some ways that students get connected with college:
Attend Campus Events
Whether it is an Associated Students of Westminster (ASW) sponsored event, a concert, play, academic lecture, or TED talk, you will have the opportunity to interact with faculty, staff, and fellow students outside of the classroom environment and connect with them.
Join or Start a Student Club
Clubs and organizations are always a great way to get to know people that share similar interests with you. Westminsteroffers options that range from Feminist Club to Martial Arts, Ski and Snowboard to Theatre Society. If you are interested in starting a club that is not currently on the roster, we can help you start it up from the ground.
Experience Salt Lake City
If you want to venture off-campus, Salt Lake offers plenty of cultural and social events. Only within an our from campus, students can enjoy nine downhill ski resorts, six cross-country ski parks, and plenty of open wilderness to snowshoe, hike, and camp.
You have the option to join an intramural sports team, attend a Westminster Griffin sporting event, take a group fitness class or just spend time figuring your own work out at the Health, Wellness and Athletic Center. Remember, staying healthy is also an important part for your academic preparation.
Be a Leader
There is also the opportunity to hold a leadership positions in student government, clubs, organizations and intramural sports teams. If you are seeking o further develop you leadership skills, you can do so through the GriffinQuest Leadership program, the Annual Social Change Summit, or through academic leadership courses. The C. Charles Jackson Foundation has been a generous donor and supporter for our leadership fellows program that impacts students across campus in many facets.
