Since Westminster College is a teaching school, the teachers come to the College to learn from the students, in addition to having a role in the students' education. The atmosphere in most classrooms is laid-back, a seminar type of learning. If a student is not willing to contribute to discussion, then this style of learning and classroom setting could be very uncomfortable for him or her.
While some professors are obviously more well-liked than others, there is a good variety of professors. While there are not as many opportunities for large-scale research, there are definite advantages to going to a smaller teaching school, including more personal attention, better relationships with professors, and more opportunities to get involved!
