Facts & Statistics

Things I Wish I Knew Before Coming To School
  • A lot of students arrive at school thinking that they can do whatever they want because no one knows them there. It's a really small school, and if you make a name for yourself early on-good or bad-it will stick for the rest of your time here.
  • Alcohol has a pretty strong presence on campus.
  • Allergies can be problematic in the spring and summer.
  • Bring a U-Lock for your bike.
  • Get involved, but don't over commit yourself. Leave time for the "dormlife experience."
  • If you intend to get an on-campus job, start looking on Whitman's Web site in late August.
  • Pay close attention to class offerings-often they are only available every other year, so if there is a class you really want to take, plan ahead so you don't end up being abroad or taking other classes during the semester it is offered.
  • Racially, the student body is not diverse.
  • The weather is NOT predictable.
  • Use the resources available at Whitman to start your own independent projects.
  • Whitman's weekly lectures, exhibits, and concerts are almost always free, so take advantage.
  • You don't have to go Greek to make friends, but the frats do offer some cool rush activities like paint-balling, river rafting, and BBQs.
