The Culture You will be really happy at Whitworth if you make sure the culture is for you. The students are mostly from the Pacific Northwest, but there are a fair number of Californians and Hawaiians as well. Most are white. At Whitworth, you'll find a very particular culture that you won't find somewhere else. There's no Greek system, and the party scene is small and underground. Any parties are low key, and in houses off-campus. About 70% of the kids are the type who would rather go to the movies or go to a basketball game than party. They might be Christians, or they might not be. About 20% are your typical college-age partiers that you would see on any other campus. The last 10% are...well...let's say they have very firm religious beliefs and a limited experience of the outside world. But for the most part, Whitworth kids are normal people who are a just a little more on the tame side of average. If you're not big on the party scene and love Disney movies, Whitworth is your place. Religious Aspect Whitworth is affiliated with the Presbyterian church, but it’s fairly liberal for a religious school. You'll learn about evolution, Nietzsche, and many differing viewpoints. The school doesn’t allow sex or drinking on campus, but that’s about it. No curfews, no restrictions on boys being in girls' rooms, no required chapel, etc. AS far as curriculum, there are three required Core classes. The first is basically history of Christianity, the second is philosophy (both Christian and not), and the third is ethics and public policy. Not too different from something you might see at a secular school. Campus Safety I am female, and I regularly walked home late at night without any worries. The worst I ever hear happening on campus was the occasional stolen backpack. This is a very safe campus.
