    Everyday I walk around campus completely thankful and amazed that I have the opportunity to be part of the Whitworth community. It truly is a close community that is vastly different than any large state university. When you meet someone new, you don't have to worry about never seeing them again. People are so friendly, it's really refreshing! Also, the weather is magnificent because Spokane has four wonderfully distinct seasons, only 17 inches of annual rainfall, and 260 clear days of sunshine. Another bonus is that the dining hall is expanding and will be brand new in fall 2012, three dorms have been built in the past 10 years, and a new dorm will be construted soon. I live in the newest dorm and it is like a hotel that is nicer than my room at home! Heck, I even get to take skiing/snowboarding for a PE credit! The brand new science building is also INCREDIBLE.

    The campus is great and the dorms are in good shape. The school does not cater well to people who's views are different than those of the school.

    I absolutely love the campus, and campus life. Every night in your dorm there are group activities called Prime Times and it is a great way to relax and chill for a couple hours with members of your dorm. There are also great school wide activities from intramural sports and we have great athletics, (We've captured the McIlroy-Lewis Trophy for the best combined standings across all sports for the fourth time in six years.) All around we have immensely fun dances and great opportunities to meet other people from around the campus

    The campus is beautiful, the people are very nice, and the food is pretty good as well. It is very common for professors and students to develop personal relationships and very easy to get involved with clubs and other activities on campus.
