    The Washington College community as a whole is very friendly. It is pretty easy to become familiar with a large portion of the campus. Also, it is very easy to get involved. There are many clubs to become involved with from SGA and Student Events Board (SEB) to the Psychology and Anthropology club. It is very easy to find your niche on this campus. The student events board does an excellent job putting on events that keep the students busy. There are events anywhere from concerts and comedians to foam dance parties and game shows. Not only are there activities available on campus but off campus as well. The school is located in rural Chestertown, MD. This unique location offers some interesting activities such as the farmer's market every Saturday morning and the Taste of the Town which occurs twice a year. The water is also a short walk from campus and the park offers wonderful views of the river.

    There is always something to do on campus. Whether its a party, studying, or just hanging out with friends. Now I must admit, it is a different environment from the city life that I'm used to, but you really start to love it. I love it here because you don't always have to go to a party every weekend. Hodson Hall hosts parties mostly every weekend and they are always alcohol-free. Hodson is also the home of karaoke night, talent show and other fun events. If you feel like watching a movie, SGA sets up movies on the campus green, or inside the student center if its a rainy day. These are just some of the exciting activities offered by our peers.

    The atmosphere here is wonderful and dorm life is great. Your dorm really will become your home away from home. Everyone is friendly and we have a very tight-knit community here. There is never a lack of something today from greek organizations to student government, from sporting events to movie nights in the student center. There is also the town and water front 5 minutes away that are great to walk to and spend the afternoon.

    You will enjoy being here at Washington College. There are so many activities and clubs that you can get involved with. WC is conveniently located near the Chester River, and we have a boat house on the river bank. You can go rent a kayak from the boat house, and go out on the river and enjoy the beautiful scenery. Also, if you like to fish you can go out take you fishing pole and fish, and Chestertown being such a small town you will be rarely disturbed with loud noises, that would scar away the fish. There are truly so many activities you can do to have fun here. You would actually have to try really hard to be bored for an extensive amount time here.

    Washington College is located in Chestertown, Maryland which is a very small town located in a very rural area. However, I never once have felt that way on campus. There is always something going on. The town it's located in has a lot of historical significance and has many neat things to offer. It is located on the Chester river and there are four beaches within 20 minutes of the school. On the weekends many students often go to Annapolis or Dover which are only an hour away. Washington College provides a shuttle service to Philadelphia, Annapolis, BWI Airport and several other locations so having a car is not necessary. Honestly there is no reason to leave campus, everything you need is here.
