        Westminster students learn how to solve mysteries

        Most colleges and universities today teach students to merely solve puzzles, not mysteries. At Westminster, students learn how to solve both, which I believe is the essence of a Westminster liberal arts education. Puzzles can be solved by gathering facts and analyzing alternative solutions, but mysteries are different. Facts and analysis are necessary, but not sufficient; solving a mystery also requires judgment. Most of the world's -- and most of life's -- real problems are mysteries, not puzzles. Westminster prepares students to live in and help solve the mysteries they will face in a global society.

        I love this college!

        At Westminster College my intellect was challenged, my imagination was freed, and my passions were set ablaze. Here I made lifelong friendships that have sustained me. Here I thrived in the glow of mentors who sparked confidence and convictions. My appreciation of those who shaped my collegiate odyssey is only exceeded by the profound gratitude I have for my mother and father. My parents’ love and sacrifice allowed me to realize my Westminster College dream, which has been one of the greatest blessings in my life.
