What I Love About Working At Westminster
I love working at Westminster because of the people…students, alumni, faculty and staff, and the many visitors that walk our campus each and every day. I have learned more about the world by talking with the domestic and international students. They share their cultures and experiences and I hope in return that I share some wisdom from my experiences. The alumni and friends of Westminster are so inspiring to me. I have seen firsthand how they give back to Westminster through their time, talent and treasure. And the faculty and staff are like family.
