Washington College Reviews
The campus is small, which gives me an opportunity to meet with professors one on one. I enjoy the campus, the organizations and clubs. My experience here at Washington College is great, I love meeting new people and actually getting involved in activities. I learned different interests in people, this school and the town. I wish the school can bring black sororities on campus, more black people so it can be diverse and change the food. Otherwise, I like my school!
It's a great school. Once you find your niche in the campus it's very welcoming, and you know a lot of people! The professors are very tough, but understanding and want to see you succeed. There's been a lot of change over the past 4 years, and honestly it's made the campus even better, with more involvement from the College President, and more of his office asking what the students want to see and do with the school. I highly recommend this school to anyone looking to push yourself, but make sure you're okay with a liberal arts education (you're gonna have to take a little bit of everything)! :)
Washington College offered me a wonderful and welcoming undergrad experience. A liberal arts college geared towards feeling like a family and challenging students in unique and supportive ways, my four years flew by and were filled with unforgettable opportunities. I spent most of my time in the theatre building (Gibson Center for the Arts), but I also enjoyed the Lifetime Fitness Center and the dining hall. Chestertown is a sweet, fun area with a lot to offer if you are willing to engage with the community and step off campus. The Rose O'Neill Literary House was another highlight for any aspiring writer or person who loves literature.
