What Students Are Saying
4.39 Average Rating
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.
Natalia from Camas, WA
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.
Daniel from Walla Walla, WA
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.
Rebecca from Seattle, WA
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 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.
