Three Days to Experience West Coast Baptist College

Attend Classes. Discover Campus Life. Have Fun.

November 4-6, 2020

What is West Coast Up Close?

West Coast Up Close is an exclusive event specifically designed for high school juniors, seniors, and recent graduates.

Prepare to experience the day-to-day life of our West Coast Baptist College students as you attend classes and chapel, get to know our faculty and staff, ask questions, attend a Lancaster Baptist Church service, and much more.

In addition to living the life of a student, you'll discover the excitement of being an Eagle as you stay in the dorms, make friends, enjoy special activities, and cheer alongside our enthusiastic fans during our NCCAA basketball home opener.

Unfortunately, our policies and limited capacity don't allow for non-prospective students to stay in our dorms. The good news is that these three hotels have offered a special discount to our West Coast Up Close guests. “West Coast Baptist College” is the magic phrase that will get you our exclusive rate.
