One of my best decisions of life to get into Washington College.

I just finished my first year WAC and it was fantastic. Everyone respects you for who you are and it is easy to become close to people,

I love WAC, I have always had a hard time making great friends but at Washington College everyone is so friendly and nice. For example, any time you walk towards a building the person in front of you will hold the door open for you and I just think that is amazing. There are so many little things that make such a difference. All the events that the school holds are fun, entertaining, or interesting in some way and the best part is they are always free.
