Health & Safety: Campus crime is not very prevalent on Whitman's campus. Generally, most students feel very safe on campus at all times as there are excellent services in place that are ready and willing to help when necessary. Whitman stresses their intolerance for sexual assault very intensely and most students as first years are quickly introduced to the campus's sexual assault awareness policy.

Overall Experience: The learning aspect here at Whitman college is great. Professors are incredibly helpful and there are always interesting classes available. The average class size is very manageable with often times no more than twenty people. Lots of the classes are structured as discussion based and therefore allows for an interesting and engaging academic atmosphere.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Whitman does a good job with preparing their student so that they possess a solid general education. However, there are issues with Whitman when it comes to preparing students in specific, career based areas. Recruiting on campus does happen, but not very often. The career center/services on campus are incredibly helpful, but often times have trouble helping students find the exact job or internship they are looking for.

Campus Housing: The on-campus housing at Whitman College is great. The halls are all in easy access to classes and most other buildings on campus. The rooms are spacious and the buildings are never in permanent disrepair. Orientation did well to introduce students to those who live in their same residence hall.

4 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life at Whitman College is different from many other schools. Although Greek life is popular, it is still extremely accepted to not be a part of a fraternity or a sorority.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: Athletics at Whitman College are not at the forefront of the college experience. There is some form of school spirit and pride brought out by sports, however most students do not participate in the athletics scene.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Whitman College is an amazing school. Every student here is incredibly nice and so like-minded to myself. The campus is beautiful and small enough that it's impossible for any student to feel lost or small. Although restricted in areas of study, Whitman College does an excellent job of insuring that their students are generally educated well and a brought up to date on topics that are of extreme global importance.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

Though Whitman has had its ups and downs, overall, most students have absolutely loved it and feel there is no possible college better for them. Many warn that it does take some adjusting (especially with Walla Walla being less metropolitan than what some are used to), but of course, that’s a large part of what college itself is, no matter where you are. At Whitman, it’s challenging to adjust to the environment; if you find something drastically contrasting to what you’re accustomed to before college, perhaps more so than it would be at other schools closer to larger cities. In general, most students have found they need to make a larger adjustment of some kind to Whitman’s environment, but most have loved their experiences once they found a comfortable niche.

Many seniors find it difficult to leave Whitman because of the bonds they create with people there, be it with students or professors. Whitman also has a very strong and supportive network of alumni, which is indicative of the bond many people have with Whitman. Several students feel they’ve grown in many positive ways by being put through the challenges of Whitman, and all in all, wouldn’t change their experiences there for the world. It’s said to be a unique and special place, unlike any environment most students have ever been in, and many think it will be difficult to leave when graduation comes. The people really make the school, and are some of the most thoughtful, well-spoken, humorous, and genuine people you’ll find anywhere.
