I had a great time at Whittier College, it allowed me to not only grow in the intellectual sense but as a whole person. They connected me to an internship, LA County Arts Commission Internship of The Arts that completely changed my life path. This internship introduced me to the world of arts producing.

Whittier College is an amazing, small liberal arts college just outside of Los Angeles, CA. Class sizes are small, so you're not just a number and you can get lots of one-on-one attention from instructors if you need it. Everyone here is super friendly. Very close knit community.
