Whitworth University Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (6)
The professors in my field (biology) were amazing. I gained a ton of knowledge and what I think was a very full circle education which has prepared me for whatever next steps I want to take. I will say though, that I absolutely hated the social aspects of Whitworth. This is not true of everyone, but as a non-Christian person with a less than conventional moral outlook, Whitworth was horrible. I encountered a couple teachers who were horribly narrow minded (not in the biology department, thankfully) and only barely tried to disguise their dislike for my opinions. If you don't want to listen to all the chatter that comes with a "Christ-centered" education, you may want to stay away. I stuck it out because the biology program really is great & the scholarships I received were good too. In hindsight though I may have enjoyed my undergraduate career more had I gone somewhere else. Like I said, this was just my experience personally.
I like Whitworth because of its smaller, more intimate community and the accessibility of the professors. Campus leadership was also very organized & had lots of social opportunities for students.
Great experience--learned, laughed, and loved a lot. A great time to try new things, step out of your comfort zone, and explore yourself and the world. Attending a small school was definitely good for this, as it was a more intimate community of both students and professors.
Whitworth's music program is stellar and prepared me (as much as school can) for life as a musician and for pursuing a master's degree in music. The professors were kind, personable, and took time to get to know their students individually. Whenever I needed help outside of class, they were always more than willing to accommodate me. The music department at Whitworth University is exceptional and home to a lot of talent, both the students and faculty. I felt inspired by my peers in all areas. The music department is very friendly and feels like a big family, which can be hard to find in other music departments. Competition was always friendly, if nonexistent. I loved my time at Whitworth, especially in the music department, and would recommend the school to anyone.
Whitworth is a small, private, liberal arts college located in Spokane, WA. Because of it's size they're able to offer smaller class sizes which allows students to have an individual relationship with each professor. I enjoyed because I felt I learned more and developed into a better student. I feel like the math and economics/business departments were very strong and taught me a great deal.
The community at Whitworth is incredible--the professors, the staff, and the students are all incredibly helpful and willing to help anyone who needs it and seeks it out. Assistance is readily and quickly available to everyone. Each professor knows what they are teaching inside and out and offer great instruction and insight. My professors were not only teachers, but became great friends as well.
