“The three R’s best describe my time at Westminster: Rigor, Relevance, and Relationships.  Everyday I walked into a classroom my learning had meaning, and purpose.  I knew that each lesson was tailored to make me become successful in my craft.  The faculty created a curriculum around current events, diverse backgrounds, and historical realities while building on technological skills preparing me for my future endeavors.  It was far more than course work, but built around life.  I am thankful for this training I received, because I am not afraid of what lies ahead in the unknown. “
