4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The quality of the dorms really depends on which year you are. The freshman dorms are obviously the worst on campus. They do not have air conditioning, and freshman are pretty inconsiderate to other people when it comes to cleanliness. Overall, they are liveable and won't be bad if everyone works together. The dorms improve emensely as the years pass. The Junior and Senior dorms are great. The buildings are nice, the rooms are fairly spacious, and the facility does their best to keep everything in ship-shape.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Sports are a huge part of life on campus. When walking through, it seems as though at least 80% of the students are involved in an athletic activity, and love doing so!

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The school itself is pretty nice. The campus is beautiful, the people are friendly, most of the professors are helpful and fun, and the weather is always nice. The only complaint that I really have is the price. Sure, they give out quite a bit of scholarship money, but that still doesn't cover 1/4 of the cost of the school. Room, board, and tuition come out to a whopping $57,000 per year! Now what 18 year old is going to have enough money to even come close to that?! I don't think that any school is good enough to cost this much, let alone a tiny private school in Whittier, CA.

2 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I really do not think that this college cares at all about the students' well-being.

2 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I honestly would not recommend anyone attend this school. Of course, there will be the rare few that actually enjoy what this campus has to offer, but I am among a large group of students who are fed up with how this school operates. That is why I plan on transferring out once this semester comes to an end.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I guess a degree is a degree; however, in the world we live in today, having a college degree or not may not even make a difference.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: It could be worse. My building personally has no air conditioning so the heat really affects the mornings and makes it hot even when the outdoor temperature is only moderate.

2 College Sophomore

Greek Life: It seems that basically everyone who joins a "society" as they are called on our campus, sticks their nose in the air towards most non-society members. They go beyond having simple pride in what they have become a part of, but take everything too seriously and tend to "look down upon" others.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: I attended this school simply to play basketball and get an education. I was promised a spot for my skill and diligent work ethic, but that did not seem to work out as I previously thought planned. School spirit is practically non-existent because it seems most people are not proud to attend Whittier College.

2 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The school disregards our overall safety and seems to not understand the every day stresses we go through just with classes alone, not to mention that most students here are part of some sort of extracurricular activity (sports, societies, etc.) It seems as though most professors, and especially the "higher-ups" (President, Dean) seem to only care about the financial aspect of everything.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I am a kinesiology major and professors in this department are very educated in driven. What stood out to me most and has impacted my life tremedmously is poli-sci professor Mcbride. He connects with his students and really cares for their success not only in the classroom but outside as well.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: There are always job fairs on campus which is very beneficial.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: The dorms could be a lot nicer and faculties can do their jobs more than once a week.
