Whittier college is a small but wonderful school.The campus is beautiful and the people are friendly. The atmosphere inspires one to learn due to its richness and abundance of academics.
Rodjinae from Compton, CA
Whittier College is a great school for students who want a closer relationship with their professors because class sizes are very small. The campus is set in the suburban city of Whittier, where it is beautiful, quiet and near numerous shops and entertainment. The campus itself is amazing because the faculty are all very helpful and the activities are varied, fun, and always happening!
