Griffin GearUp is a program designed for admitted first-year students that includes meeting with an academic advisor, registering for classes, understanding the financial aspect of education at Westminster College, exploring leadership development, and meeting some of your peers.

To keep students and staff safe and healthy, all 2020 Griffin GearUp programs will be virtual. Due to this change, there will not be a guest portion of Griffin GearUp. Instead, Westminster will be developing webinars for parents/guardians throughout the summer. More information about these informational opportunities will be communicated via email, the Westminster website, and social media to students and parents/guardians.

Keep an eye out for an email with more information in the weeks leading up to your Griffin GearUp program. For general questions or concerns, contact the Dean of Students Office at 801.832.2230.
