and Jefferson College, Waynesburg
University and Westminster College - the
PAC remains a unique organization in
this day of high pressure intercollegiate
athletics. With academics at the center
of each member’s philosophy, the PAC
is built on the principle that an athletic
program is a part of college life, but not
an entity in itself.
     The PAC expanded to seven mem-
bers in 2005 with the addition of Thomas
More, formerly an NCAA Division III inde-
pendent. Saint Vincent College, a former
NAIA member, joined the conference as
it began provisional membership status
in NCAA Division III in 2006-07. Another
former NAIA member, Geneva College,
became the conference’s ninth mem-
ber and began league play as it started

                                             has been the home of the Titans

                                    unusual dimensions are 370 feet down the
                                    right field line, 360 feet to center field, and
                                    340 feet down the left field line. The field’s
                                    signature feature is in left field, as home runs

                                    field underwent extensive renovations in 2004,
                                    including the addition of new dugouts, bullpen

About Westminster the Presbyterian
 Founded in 1852 and related to
Church (U.S.A.), Westminster College ranks first in
the nation as “Best College for Women in Science,
Technology, Engineering and Math,” according
to Forbes.com. Westminster is a top tier liberal
arts college, a national leader in graduation rate
performance, and a “Great School, Great Price,”
according to U.S. News Best Colleges guide.
Westminster ranked 38th among liberal arts colleges,
according to the Washington Monthly College Guide,
and is one of the most affordable national liberal arts
colleges in Pennsylvania. Westminster is also honored
as one of “The Best 376 Colleges” by The Princeton
Review, and is named to the President’s Honor Roll for
excellence in service learning.
   Nearly 1,600 undergraduate and graduate students
benefit from individualized attention from dedicated
faculty while choosing from 42 majors and nearly 100
organizations on the New Wilmington, Pa., campus.



                                                          • Westminster is small by choice.
                                                            Undergraduate enrollment: 1,470 (41% men, 59% women)

                                                          • The demand for a Westminster education has never been higher.
                                                            Applications: Westminster received nearly 4,000 applications for
                                                            admission for the class of 2015. The prospective students had 3.5

                                                            points above the national average).

                                                          • Westminster students receive personal attention they deserve.
                                                            12:1 Student to Faculty ratio: 104 full-time faculty focus on
                                                            educating students (90% of faculty have doctorate or equivalent).
                                                            That’s one of the reasons Westminster is a national leader in
                                                            graduation rate performance.

                                                            to endless opportunities.
                                                            Majors: Westminster students can choose from 42 majors and 10

                                                            interdisciplinary programs are also possible.

                                                          • Westminster graduates are in demand.
