5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Wonderful small town, beautiful campus, and a great bunch of students, faculty and staff.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I love Whitman College. The professors not only care about you but also want to see you succeed. Whitman could work on the variety of courses and majors/minors offered. There is still a lot to choose from to study though. Everyone is accepting of each other and the student body is full of humble and kind students.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: There is the iEngage program which allows you to apply for jobs post graduation to many companies around the U.S. Whitman makes the transition go smoother. There are several job and internship opportunities on campus that are announced through very frequent emails and bulletin boards all over campus.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: There are many talks about consent and sexual violence that all freshmen have to go through during orientation. There are several clubs on campus that support the prevention of sexual violence. There is even the green dot initiative and an app created by students where students can request help at anytime they need it. I feel very safe on this campus because everyone cares about each other.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The social atmosphere is great. As an antisocial person, it was hard making friends at first. But students are so welcoming and always asked if I wanted to come to dinner with them. The dorm rooms are not too spacious but they definitely do the job. There is enough space to keep all your belongings in and then some. At least in jewett hall, there are the couch bed which really help create space when you are no using your bed

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: The guys and girls that are part of Greek life at Whitman are quite welcoming. They treat you the same whether you turn down their offer of invitation to a fraternity/sorority or join the fraternity/sorority. Whitman has amazingly humble and nice students and there and every student treats each other the same way despite affiliation with greek life

4 College Freshman

Athletics: All students come out to games and love participating in intramural sports as well.

5 College Freshman

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.
