School Description

From its beginning, Whitman College has prized its independence from sectarian and political control. Whitman has remained small in order to facilitate the close faculty-student interaction that is essential to exceptional higher education. In 1913, Whitman became the first college or university in the nation to require undergraduate students to complete comprehensive examinations in their major fields. The installation of a Phi Beta Kappa chapter in 1919, the first for any Northwest college, marked Whitman's growing reputation.

          • Testimony
            1989-1993, BA

            Whitman recognizes that education isn't about learning a particular subject and moving on, but in seeing a bigger picture, and in finding a balance as a well rounded person. I have relied on my education time and time again, not for the information it taught me then, but for the lessons it taught me in how to learn. I highly recommend Whitman!

          • Testimony
            2006-2010, Arts

            Whitman is an amazing community filled with extremely cheerful people. The professors go above and beyond the call of duty to help you succeed in all aspects of your life. If you are thinking about going to Whitman College, I would highly encourage you to visit the campus, attend a class (or two), and get to know your surroundings.

          • Testimony
            1988-1992, Arts

            It's only now, as an adult, that I've come to fully appreciate the magic of a Whitman education: an inspired learning environment populated by fantastic professors in a beautiful setting. Rigorous AND fun.
