Whitman College Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (47)
I am very happy with the undergraduate experience Whitman has given me. I've grown immensely as a critical thinker, writer, and problem solver while studying under incredibly bright, friend, and invested faculty. I definitely recommend Whitman to anyone with a broad range of academic interests. Also, I've grown to love the slow-paced lifestyle of Walla Walla and small campus community at Whitman! Although Whitman takes a very liberal-arts-style approach to skills taught in the classroom (which will absolutely challenge you), there are also plenty of opportunities for professional and hard-skill growth at Whitman too (you just need to be assertive, reach out yourself and take advantage of these opportunities). For students interested in computer science, math or finance like myself, I recommend participating in the Whitman Investment Company, the Whitman Innovation Network, an independent study, research with a professor, or come up with some side project of your own in which a professor will surely be happy to assist you. The student engagement (career) center works very hard to connect motivated students with alumni/employers with internship and job opportunities, and even offers stipends to students who land unpaid internship opportunities. Personally, I had a great summer internship experience last year with a company I found through the student engagement center.
Whitman was a rigorous and challenging environment well suited for students with an appetite for learning! I value the years I spent at Whitman and the care and thoughtfulness with which our faculty approached our curriculum. The beauty of the Pacific Northwest isn't a bad perk either.
Whitman College is a beautiful place. Students are friendly, professors are tirelessly helpful. The community becomes your family. Being an extremely small school, you need to be comfortable with a complete lack of anonymity. Whitman is a place where you are forced to push yourself and where learning occurs with every aspect of activity, traits that persist long past graduation.
Had the privilege of working with incredibly intelligent and wonderful professors. I wish there was more options for a specific focus in the psychology major, but I was fortunate to be able to learn from and work with the professors that I did. I would recommend this degree program, you'll be able to work with great people.
Whitman College is an excellent academic institution that will prepare you for whatever job you eventually obtain. It is a nurturing, supportive environment for which students to grow scholastically and personally. It provides excellent networking opportunities for alumni and was a great experience all around for me.
Whitman college is a great place to learn and grow, reflect and ponder while still young and impressionable. The English program is the finest, of course, and many lasting lessons can be taken from literature. The humanities are the reason for a liberal arts education.
Amazing college experience. Great small campus with excellent professors. Classes were small and intimate and allowed for lots of one on one with instructors. The overall experience allowed me to become more well rounded and has helped immensely with running my own business
Whitman College is a great school for minds that want to constantly grow, be challenged, and adventure. The atmosphere of the school is wonderful, probably due to the fact that its a small community with exponential interconnections and relationships, all settled in a beautiful natural setting of the pacific northwest.
I felt my college experience was very good at Whitman College. I was taught critical thinking skills which have helped me in any sort of job I have undertaken.
Whitman is a college for learners. High schoolers who were not satisfied by only textbook learning, but wanted to debate, to push questions further, to engage those with perspectives unlike theirs. I found that in every class, I evaluated the framework with which I saw the world, and felt challenged to never accept the status quo.
