Ohana Reception in O'ahu
Westmont warmly invites you to join President Gayle D. Beebe and other members of the Westmont ohana for an evening event celebrating God's faithfulness and looking ahead to the future.
The president will share with you some of the innovative strategies underway to equip Westmont students to be global citizens able to make an impact in the world. The event has been postponed to spring 2021.
March 26-27, 2021
Typically each March the college welcomes back parents to campus. During this weekend, you will meet and get to know other Westmont parents and some of the faculty and staff on campus. The weekend always ends with the infamous Spring Sing. For those of you that have not yet experienced this event at the Santa Barbara Bowl, this must see event is when students from each dorm participate in skits and songs all based around a theme. We must abide by state and county guidelines and can't predict when the prohibition on large gatherings will be lifted, so check back for more details.
Class of 2020 Commencement
Westmont still wants to celebrate your son or daughter's long-delayed Commencement. We reached out to the graduates with a Commencement survey, and they shared their thoughts and ideas about the ceremony.
We’re excited to announce a date for the 2020 Commencement ceremony: Saturday, May 1, 2021. This one-day event will begin with the Baccalaureate service in the morning followed by a brunch and then the graduation ceremony in the afternoon led by the traditional bagpipers.
You’ll receive more details in an email from our Commencement Office in the new year.
