Westminster College is a private, residential, undergraduate college with a curriculum based on the liberal arts. Located in Fulton, Missouri, the College was established in 1851 as Fulton College. The National Churchill Museum (formally known as the Winston Churchill Memorial) is a national historic site located on campus and includes the Church of St Mary, Aldermanbury. 

Life at Westminster is always humming with activity. Whether it's tailgating for the homecoming game, hanging out at a Coffeehouse night, or attending a presentation, there's always something going on for students.

One of the most popular events is TGIF, which is put on by the Campus Activities Board once a month. Students, faculty, and staff show up in large numbers to hang out, eat free food, and de-stress.

Nearly every Westminster student gets involved on campus in some way. You can become a member of our large Greek community, lead a club or organisation, play a sport or participate in intramurals, and much more. Whatever the activity, faculty and staff help students grow dynamically throughout their experience.
