Grit & 优雅,不仅仅是座右铭

这些词定义和区分了威斯敏斯特学派. 它们代表了一种传统, a culture, an attitude, an aspiration, 我们的学生和教师的一种生活方式, 这是我们毕业生的优势.
 
Grit characterizes the effort students make to meet our high expectations for academic work, athletics, 社区参与. Grace speaks to the way they negotiate these responsibilities with generosity of spirit, 礼貌待人,尊重他人. The unique and powerful combination of grit and grace is what makes Westminster people successful, not only here, 而且在以后的生活中也是如此. 
 
源于我们的座右铭 virtute et numine, “勇气和优雅”用一句话概括了我们的文化, our promise, 对自己和他人的承诺. Westminster students and faculty strive for excellence – and humility, 个人成功——以及为他人服务, 崇高的目标——以及人类共同的尊严. Blending the ethics of grace with the competition and effort of grit, Westminster encourages its students to test the boundaries of their abilities, 尝试新事物, 无论输赢都要不失风度.
 
Where grit and grace come together, where excellence meets opportunity, almost anything is possible.
