Dear Westminster alumni,

Remember when you were a high school senior, trying to decide which college to attend? Remember how nervous you were – and how excited – to walk through the Columns as a new Westminster student?

We hear so often from our students how it was a Westminster alum who first introduced them to Westminster College – who changed their life by recommending the school who changed theirs.

There is no better group of people to recruit future Blue Jays than you, our alumni and friends. Please join us in recruiting those students you feel would be ideal candidates for Westminster:

  1. Share the link to our application and encourage high school seniors to apply before the priority application deadline of February 15.
  2. Ask them to write your name in the “What influenced you to apply to Westminster College?” section, so we may know their connection to you.*
This is all you have to do to help a young man or woman take the first step in making the best decision of their life. We also encourage you to share this information with any of your fellow Blue Jays.

Thank you very much for your commitment to Westminster and the future of this great college!


Robert Andrews
Vice President and Dean of Enrollment Management
