What Students Are Saying

4.09 Average Rating
Washington College is the perfect college for a student who is looking for a small, close-knit community. Professors and peers truly care and help one another strive for their greatest accomplishments. However, a person who is accustomed to an urban life-style may have trouble getting adjusted to the rural, small town atmosphere in Chestertown.
Lindsey from Mechanicsville, MD
Washington College is a fun, clean, interesting place to attend. The professor/student ratio allows for almost personalized classes. Overall, a wonderful school.
