3.2.a Devotional life
The devotional life of the Seminary is nurtured by regular chapel services under the charge of the faculty, and by weekly prayer groups of students and faculty. The root conviction governing all these devotional exercises is that the true guide in Christian worship and Christian prayer, as well as in all other activities of the Christian life, is the Word of God.
The Seminary does not assume to itself the church’s responsibility for the nurture of the spiritual life of the student. Each student, therefore, is urged to associate with the life and work of a particular congregation.
3.2.b The Carriage House
The Carriage House provides a place for conversation and respite for the Westminster community. The upstairs, known as the Loft, is dedicated to quiet conversations and small groups. Downstairs in the Café, students can play a game of ping pong, enjoy a cup of coffee, purchase lunch, or take part in a conversation about applying the Gospel to real life in the here-and-now.
Counseling is provided by the deans, faculty members, and, when deemed necessary, by professional practitioners. For further details, students should contact either the Dean of Students or the Associate Dean of Students.
3.2.d Health Insurance
All full-time students are required to have health care coverage. International students on a J-1 or F-1 visa, in addition to the medical benefits required for all students, are also required to have Medical Evacuation and Repatriation of Remains (MERR) coverage.
Students may purchase Westminster’s group health insurance policy or procure their own. Information about insurance can be found on Westminster’s website, www.wts.edu.
