Most Helpful Review for Whittier College

Whittier is a small private school in the eclectic town of Whittier near Los Angeles, California. The classroom sizes are small, within the range of one teacher per 25 students. thus, there is a lot of one-on-one time with your professors. Also, this gives way to making influential friends (people in high places) that assist you throughout life. the opportunities that are afforded to a Whittier student or graduate are irreplaceable and can rarely be found at another institution.

    Whittier College was not my first choice but I was surprised at how I easily liked the school when I started to attend there. The professors are really good at what they do. One aspect I really like about this school is the close relationships one will develop with her professors and classmates.

    Whittier takes academics seriously The clubs on campus take every opportunity to provide a wide variety of social events for the students to connect outside the classroom. The students and staff are helpful and friendly. Most instructors that I know genuinely care about the student's success.

    The learning environment is more of an intimate setting to where you get to know your fellow classmates and your professors on a individual basis. Due to there being a close knit of us attending the school it is a big family and every one is proactive and diligent in their work. Furthermore, there is always something going on at campus due to it not being a commuter school in which our school houses 26 countries in which it has a very diverse background when it comes to learning new things.

    They give out tons of merit based aid, but will charge you for EVERYTHING from a clogged toilet to parking in the wrong spot. A very close-knit student body. Not a party school, but we still have fun.
