From Whitman College

"What an amazing place." These are the words we hear over and over from visitors, from current students, from professors...and hopefully soon from you! Perhaps it's our location in the Pacific Northwest, with natural beauty in all directions and a stunning campus that doubles as both an arboretum and an outdoor art museum. Maybe it's the dynamic community of supportive peers, caring and mentoring professors, and friendly staff who live and work here, helping to challenge and inspire you. No matter what it is, we are eager for you to find your place at Whitman College.
