Westhampton College: From 1914 to Today
Westhampton College has a long tradition of educating women at the University. Together with Richmond College, we are dedicated to supporting all students who identify with our college, and helping all students become the best versions of themselves. We seek to strengthen our students in their intellectual and personal development, to promote and celebrate diversity and inclusion, and to prepare our students to lead informed, purposeful lives.
