History

Westminster College was born Jan. 21, 1852 in New Wilmington, Pennsylvania at a joint meeting of the Ohio and Shenango Presbyteries. One of the earliest coeducational colleges in the nation, Westminster was founded to promote the spirit and values of Christianity while focusing on the development of the individual – intellectually, spiritually, and socially.

Westminster is proud of its heritage, and optimistic about its future. Serving the needs of students has enabled Westminster to become one of the nation’s finest liberal arts colleges.
