Most Helpful Review for Whitman College

Whitman is well known for its rigorous academics. To start with all freshmen must take an encounters course, which includes the study of texts most people would not have studied in high school (including The Qur'an or The Odyssey). This alone makes it difficult to not learn even during your first semester at Whitman.

    Students simply love to be here. The passion for what they're doing inside and out of the classroom is contagious. It is a truly unique feeling on campus.

    I would highly recommend Whitman College because of the relations and connections you get to establish. I rate this school from a 10 scale a 9.5 and I take the .5 because it is in a very small town, however it does not take away from how great the school really is. In my opinion it is a great school and near to being perfect.

    Whitman is a great place if you consider yourself to be unique and intellectual, as well as having interests in many academic fields. From the moment you arrive, you are thrown straight into a place filled with sharing, thinking and learning. You might not get along with everyone you meet there, but you'll at least have some very intellectual, and often passionate, arguments with them.

    Whitman is a challenging school where students go to learn to become adults and do cool things. The professors there are amazing! And, the students are just as likely to enjoy an interesting class as they are willing to set up a hammock and chill for the afternoon.

    Whitman College is located in Walla Walla, Washington. Whitman College challenges you in every way possible: from academics to sports to the meaning of life. Whitman makes you question everything you know and on top of that expects the very best of you.

    Whitman College is like home away from home. I love the atmosphere of people being genuinely nice to each other. There is no competition between people when it comes to academics, instead we are there to help each other thrive in what we are best at.

    I would describe Whitman as my extended family. Everyone, from the professors to the students to the janitors, have been nothing but supportive since I have been here. I have met some of the most interesting and caring people here.
