With rigorous academics and a diverse student body, Whitman College is one of the most prestigious schools in Washington. Whitman offers all the benefits of a private liberal arts college, including small class sizes and a student-to-faculty ratio under 10:1.
Whitman’s academics are based on engagement. Students are expected to learn actively, asking questions and seeking answers. There about 40 majors to choose from, and you can choose to design your own interdisciplinary major. The college also offers many fellowship opportunities, such as the Pickering Fellowship for students interested in working for the United States Foreign Service.
Student life at Whitman is as engaged as its academics. Whitman students are heavily involved in intramural sports, Greek life, and a variety of clubs and organizations. The college’s Outdoor Program is also quite popular, offering opportunities for rock climbing, kayaking, rafting and winter sports.
Whitman’s admissions committee values academic achievement, strong writing skills and extracurricular involvement. Because admissions are highly selective, it’s a good idea to schedule an interview so that the admissions committee can get to know you better.
All applicants will be considered for institutional scholarships based primarily on your GPA and standardized test scores. Some awards, such as the Campbell Music Scholarships, require a separate application. Make sure to complete your CSS Profile and FAFSA if you’d like to apply for need-based financial aid.
