Graduation Year: 2013

Tell us about your college experience.

Whitman is an incredible school. The atmosphere is extremely welcoming and supportive. I never felt like my peers were competing with me academically, just helping me. People are so friendly! The campus is beautiful. It is very easy to get help when you need it. Professors are passionate about what they teach, excited to be teaching it, and very available to talk to outside of class. I feel very close to my thesis advisers. They were endlessly helpful and inspiring and generous. There is so much to do at Whitman. I loved playing flag football, singing in an acappella group, being in a sorority, mentoring at-risk elementary school kids, being a part of groups to help make Whitman more green, dancing, and many more activities. You can go on hiking and rafting and kayaking trips almost any weekend. Walla Walla is adorable. The area surrounding Walla Walla is gorgeous. I wouldn't have chosen any other school in the world. I loved Whitman.

Would you get the same degree if you could start over?

I would choose the same degree.

What advice can you offer other students?

Go to college. Major in what you want to, not what your parents think you should or what could get you a better job. It will make you happier

Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2013

Tell us about your college experience.

I would definitely recommend Whitman - the atmosphere of the entire school and attitude of the students toward learning, and then the ability and desire of the staff/faculty/profs to help you out

Would you get the same degree if you could start over?

Yes, it's very applicable to what I want to do in the future and good for employment

What advice can you offer other students?

Enjoy the time you have in undergrad! It goes by too fast.

Degree: Chemistry
Graduation Year: 2013

Tell us about your college experience.

It was a great fit. The academics were challenging, but all of the students were really open and welcoming. Overall, Whitman just has a great atmosphere.

Would you get the same degree if you could start over?

I would choose the same degree because my professors were absolutely amazing, and my wonderful experience was due to them. However, in the future I think I may be more interested in economics or business than lab work.

What advice can you offer other students?

Do what you are passionate about, but be realistic about your abilities. (i.e. major in what you love or do what you love, but have a back-up plan if your intended career may not generate much income).

Degree: Liberal Studies

Tell us about your college experience.

Excellent fit. Lots of one on one with professors, small community, close friends close to campus cheap rent.

Would you get the same degree if you could start over?

I would choose the same degree in a heartbeat. Chemistry makes the world make sense to me.

What advice can you offer other students?

If you think you want to do it, just do it. If that means going to college, then go. If that means going straight into the real world, then go. Don't worry about being afraid of anything. Sometimes the best thing you can do is take the risk and jump into it, especially if you have no idea what is going to happen next.

Whitman was a fantastic fit for me, although I didn't feel that way during my freshman year.

Tell us about your college experience.

School was difficult, but by getting through it I learned so much and became a better person. To me, it's all about the journey, not the endpoint.

Degree: Economics
Graduation Year: 2013

Would you get the same degree if you could start over?

Maybe not, I got a little disillusioned with my major by the end of my four years.

What advice can you offer other students?

It is helpful to have some idea of what you want to do before you go into college so that you can best choose courses that will later help you further your career.

Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2013

Would you get the same degree if you could start over?

Yes, 100% religious studies was a perfect fit for me. Many times people ask me what I will do with it and I honestly don't know, but I do know that the different cultures and traditions that I have learned about and have developed empathy and compassion for will help me in my future career in the non-profit sector.

What advice can you offer other students?

Do what you love and worry about a career later. Your career will fall in place with your interests and values. You should pick a major that fits with your passions and morals so that it can give you a better sense of self and what you want for your future.

Wonderful fit for me. I made friends I will have for the rest of my life. I developed personal relationships with my professors. I loved my classes and got so much out of student life.

Would you get the same degree if you could start over?

Probably politics, slightly more applicable

What advice can you offer other students?

College is an incredible opportunity for personal as well as academic growth -- not all colleges are right for you, but you'll find one that is and you will have the most incredible four years of your life!
