Overall Experience: I attended this school for three years before transferring. This school is extremely money hungry and the administration is god awful but some of the professors are a saving grace. The career center is an absolute joke as the top employers they bring in are the YMCA and the parks and rec services. There are little to no internship opportunities outside of the boys and girls club and jumpstart. Parking is free though which is super nice. The dining hall is terrible and they don't let anyone sell food on campus which makes it hard to fundraise. The science department is really underfunded and they do a good job of coercing students to do the Whittier Scholars Program which is essentially a build your own major program. This program is a trap of sorts as most 'Scholars' major in majors that have little to no job prospects. The dorms are absolutely terrible as well. for $11,000 you get no AC, leaky roofs, small living conditions, and a whole lot of plumbing problems. Overall the school is a solid D and way too expensive.

Overall Experience: Honestly I love this school and am so glad I applied! I've met so many great people and had a lot of great classes. The freshman dorms and the cafeteria food could be improved though.

Overall Experience: There are some good teachers, but the way education was structured and the requirements for lib ed were confusing and difficult to connect.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I love the smaller school setting, I receive more one on one attention from my professors. I would choose my school again because I was granted a lot of scholarship money, which influenced my decision in enroll in the college.

Overall Experience: I previously attended NYU, which is an exhilarating place with very little support. Whittier College has thus far been just as exciting, and much more supportive and accessible! I am so proud to be a Poet.

Overall Experience: I am a recent alumn. Whittier College provided the best liberal arts experience I could have imagined! Small class sizes and remarkable instructors who treated each individual with respect and dignity. Whittier is a diamond in the rough as most people mistake it for a community college, but for those who have ever had the opportunity to visit the campus or sit in on a lecture, the one thing that can be linked between Whittier College and a community college is the word community itself! Whittier has an awesome community: faculty, staff, and students alike! It is because of my experience at Whittier that I have chosen to pursue and further my education in the medical field. This small liberal arts college showed me how to give back to my community and take ownership of the things that are important, like education a cleaner and greener planet, and the capacity to show compassion in every day situations.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: During my time at Whittier, I have come across professor's that were great and those that were horrible. However, my favorite thing about the school is the ability to work one-on-one with professors, ask them directly for help and advice, and the opportunity to have academic tutors for most classes. Also, the smallness of the college is a major plus for me!

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: In Uptown, there are a lot of different options and a lot of different culture foods.

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: The party scene depends on how involved you are on campus and how many people you do know.

2 College Freshman

Administration: A lot of the campus security officers here don't seem interested in the actual safety and concerns of the students.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: About 80% of the students here have financial aid so the scholarships here are really generous.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: It's a typical college dining hall. The options are really limited some days and it doesn't seem sanitary for people with allergies.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Some are clearly better than other others. The housing is expensive, but it is available for all four years.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Some societies are very rude.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: Sports are very popular here at Whittier.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I love living off campus.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Dining is pretty good since uptown is very close.

3 College Sophomore

Administration: Not to bad on strictness but sometimes CAMPO can be irritating.

4 College Sophomore

Party Scene: There is always something to do on the weekends here at Whittier.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: The school helps a lot with financial aid, but once that runs out, you are on your own to fund the rest.
