The Westwood College – Atlanta Northlake campus offers a rich student life and a welcoming atmosphere for learning. We believe in rewarding students for their hard work and ingenuity with honors such as the “High GPA Awards” and membership in the Alpha Beta Kappa Honors Society. Our extensive 800-square-foot Learning Resource Center offers plenty of occupation-related reference materials and a computer commons area for class research needs.
Westwood also provides lots of fun social activities for students. From the first term we encourage students to be active in campus activities which include:*
- Career fairs
- Spring Fling
- Sundae Soirée for night students
- Student Activities Week each term
- Community participation in parades and volunteer activities
- Madden game tournaments (second week of each month)
- "Know Your Program" presentations
- Intramural basketball team
- Student dance troupe
- Annual all-campus performing shows
- Monthly birthday celebrations
- End-of-term celebrations
- Quarterly Promise Keeper’s luncheon to celebrate academic success
- Phi Beta Lambda business fraternity (post-secondary component of Future Business Leaders of America)
Each fall, the campus celebrates Homecoming, complete with a king, a queen and a football game featuring our own flag football team. There are fun activities for students throughout the week culminating with a Homecoming Coronation and Ball. The campus also participates in basketball, softball, and cheerleading leagues with other private colleges and universities in Georgia.
Campus executives have been working on several initiatives to further increase the success of their students, including:
- Faculty and student mentoring programs
- Book clubs for faculty, staff and students, with a new title each term
- Guest lecturers which bring political figures, educators and leaders to campus to speak to students
The Atlanta Northlake Campus is also home to 2009 Program Chair of the Year, Dr. Deva Joseph, and several past winners of Faculty of the Year and Program Chair of the Year Award. Students get the combined value of a career-oriented college and an excellent setting at Westwood College in the Atlanta Northlake area.
