Party Scene: All depends on who you know and what parties you go to. Either house parties or Frat parties

3 Recent Alumnus

Party Scene: Weekends only. Not many people go out during the week but drink in the dorms on the weeknights

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Think I would do again but will know better when I have completed my freshman year.

4 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Alcohol visibility is pretty blatant. You will hear the term WACoholics and you really have to visit to see. It's not horrible but it depends what suits you. There are off campus parties, especially different sports have their own house, frat parties- they're not bad- Cecil is my preferred Frat party- and suite parties. If you don't drink, people don't really care. There are activities to do if you don't.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I feel safe on campus and Public Safety (if you know the right officers) are great.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: You can make the best of your classes by using your professors, using the Office of Academic Skills (no matter what grade you have), and other students. The class sizes really allow individual attention and it comes to only your benefit. Recommendation Letters are so specific because if you get to know that professor early, they can speak with only accuracy.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The Career Center is really an outstanding facility to use and they have been so helpful with everything (I'm only a freshman). There is a great wide of connections that they are able to to provide for all students of all majors.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: It's really varied from great (but very expensive) to s*** (and the cheapest option). The social atmosphere has been great in my experience but it can vary when you go to suites. The housing process can be frustrating and I've had horrible experience with the Office of Residential Life. Worst option: Reid. Best option: Sassafras and Chester

3 College Freshman

Athletics: Crew is very huge and basically half of the athletes are on crew. In the Fall, our Men's Soccer team, Women's Soccer, Women's Field Hockey, and Women's Volleyball start their season. Sailing and Crew have Fall and Spring seasons.The fan support has been growing since President Mitchell Reiss introduced Gus the Goose, our mascot. It's still not a huge turnout for a small school, but it's progress. The tickets are free for students for all sports events. Athletic facilities are pretty new with the exception of the Basketball Gym. We are in, for the most sports, a competitive conference-- Centennial Conference.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The professors want so much for you to come and ask them for help. They are willing to go above and beyond for those who put the work and show up. You will find a great group of friends who share so many similar interests and experiences. It's so easy to find your college "family" due to the size. If I had to go through the college search experience, I would have made more effort for a higher GPA and higher SAT scores, in hopes for more scholarship money.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: We have some new dorms but as a freshman the dorms are older and smaller. As you get older you can get better housing and the new dorms are great! Washington offers housing all four years so some people live off campus but alot stay on campus. The suites are fun and offer alot of common room for students. I think the cost is pretty reasonable.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: The fraternities and sororities on our campus are a great activity for students who do not participate in Varsity athletics. They do things together like a team would. The have fund raising events and do community service in Chestertown and other areas around the college. Alumni come back for Greek events which is cool. I think the Greek Life at Washington is a great way to go for people who want to get involved but do not play a sport.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: I am a student athlete so I think the facilities are awesome! So many people participate in athletics either varsity sports or intramural at my school. People come to cheer on the athletes and really make you feel special. Our teams are in the Centennial Conference so the competition is tough! We do well some years and other years can be building years. The coaches are great! The encourage all athletes to put their education first and work hard in school.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Washington College is a great place to get an education! The campus is small but offers so many extra activities for all interests. The school has students from all over so even though it is located in a small town you feel like you get to know a ton of people. The professors are the best! They are available all the time for extra help which is awesome. they want students to succeed! It is not a suitcase school so everyone is there on weekends! Students go to all the games and it is a school with alot of spirit!

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: From what I have seen and heard, campus crime isn't really much of a problem. I personally feel safe walking to and from off campus apartments at even four in the morning after visiting some friends for the night. Somehow, Washington College just doesn't feel like a place where I need to be too high on alert.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I entered this college without a single clue about what I was hoping to do with the experience. But within the first few weeks I had a relatively good grasp on my classes and workload, a group of friends I could enjoy spending time with, and enough food in my dorm room to last the entire semester. I adored having small classes where it felt comfortable being in the presence of such few people, especially when those there were genuinely passionate about what they were learning. Having professors I could speak casually with during office hours or outside of class in regards to my own personal interests or material during the lesson I did not understand was a breeze. I've grown attached to WashColl.
