3 College Sophomore

Athletics: As a DIII university that cannot give out athletic scholarships, the focus is mainly on academics and related clubs, even though we have some very successful varsity teams and outstanding athletes. As a student-athlete myself, I sometimes get the feeling that the university can't be too careful in making sure sports don't get too much attention or too many perks and therefore overshadow the students who DON'T juggle rigorous classes as well as a varsity roster spot. Oh, and the locker rooms suck.

Diversity: I think that one of Whitworth's biggest goals is to become more diverse as a student body, but simply because of the fact that it is an expensive private Presbyterian university we're not exactly a melting pot. We are, however, extremely accepting of all backgrounds and have many opportunities to get involved and encourage and celebrate diversity.

Off-Campus Housing: From new duplexes to big, old houses to a variety of apartment buildings in the surrounding area, there are plenty of off-campus options to choose from. You are on your own to find housemates and good landlords however, because Whitworth would like to keep you paying their room and board fees as long as possible.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: All courses, regardless of their concentration, are interactive and challenging. The professors are experts in their field and seem excited about and invested in both their work and their students. Not including the large lecture sections of health and science courses, class sizes are small and the professors are easily accessible for extra help.

Overall Experience: Internship opportunities are in abundance at Whitworth, and every student is required to complete a service-learning class, so graduates already have applicable job experience to offer.

College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I live at home so I have never had a need to look for off campus housing.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: You can have a great social life without getting in trouble. Administration does continually remind students to refrain from making poor decisions, but campus life is still as fun as any other college.

Campus Dining: I live at home and commute to school so I never really eat campus food.

5 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Guys and girls at Whitworth always respect each other, and tend to be careful to watch out for others when they are in a relationship. It's actually quite an impressive level of maturity for a college campus.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Whitworth has a great community of students and staff alike. It's easy to access your professors to ask them questions and get help, or to just get to know them! The teaching is engaging and the organization of the many science labs I have taken have impressed me greatly. Every teacher you meet is encouraging and every student you meet is kind. Whitworth is a great school.

Health & Safety: While walking on campus I feel very safe. Campus security is friendly and I feel that they will be there when they are needed.

4 College Freshman

Diversity: The international club is very active on campus and there are Cultural Diversity Advocates whose job is to help students who feel discriminated against and bring attention to important things.

4 College Freshman

Weather: Winters are cold, so walking from off campus is annoying. Spring is beautiful and warm.

5 College Freshman

Drug Safety: The big three are taken seriously, (no alcohol, drugs, sex, or violence on campus) so there isn't much usage. None of my friends do drugs or alcohol or have been pressured into doing them.
