Westmont Magazine Student Contest Winners Make Dining Commons Wall Their Canvas
Dominique Loftus ’15 envisioned a social media wall—a bright mural that could provide a fun backdrop to photos and selfies of Westmont students and visitors. As marketing and events promotion manager for Enrollment, Marketing and Communications, she knew such a place would be popular. She found just the right location on an exterior Dining Commons wall and requested submissions from students. A committee selected the design by Ella Jennings ’23 and Morgan Sailer ’23, who collaborated on creating the mural. “The square bricks served as the perfect layout for our grid design,” Ella says. “After that, the process was straightforward; we essentially did paint-by numbers to add color and spent lots of sunny afternoons painting between classes. Many students remarked that it added a unique pop of color to the campus.” The mural provides the perfect backdrop for social media posts. If you visit Westmont, tag @westmontcollege with your photos.
