After Whittier College

HONESTLY MY FIRST YEAR HERE AT WHITTIER WAS PRETTY CHALLENGING. BUT THEN AGAIN I HAD MENTORS WHO GUIDED ME AND IT WAS SUPER GREAT BECAUSE NOW I AM GIVING BACK TO MY COMMUNITY. THE ADVISORS REALLY HELP YOU OUT WITH YOUR ACADEMICS. THERE ARE SEVERAL PROGRAMS TO HELP YOU WITH ANY CHALLENGE YOU MAY BE FACING. ONLY THING THE SCHOOL REALLY HAS TO WORK ON IS GETTING NEW DORMS. THERE HAS BEEN AN UPGRADE IN PARKING AND BUILDINGS BUT NOT WHERE THE STUDENTS HOUSE AND THAT'S NOT WORTH $50,000 IF IT HASN'T HAD ANY NEW RENOVATIONS WITH LOW MAINTENANCE STAFF WHO NEEDS HELP AND GETS PAID LESS FOR A PRIVATE SCHOOL THAT CHARGES THEIR STUDENTS A LOT.

I enjoyed the school very much. It's academic departments offer much needed learning and success to each of their students. Also, their athletics are top in their division. I sincerely loved the college life experience on the campus

At Whittier College there are a lot of opportunities for all students throughout the school year. Personally, I feel that this school has offered me the best experience of my life. In the month of January I was able to attend a course abroad to the Dominican Republic. I had the absolute best trip ever and learned a tremendous amount of facts about the country itself as well as with the course. Whittier College allowed me to make payments for the trio even after I had attended the trip to the Dominican Republic. Luckily, I was able to pay it off with the help of my work-study and part-time job. If I could do it all over again I would choose Whittier College as my school. Simply because it I love the professor-student ratio and the benefits it offers as a private university.
