I am a recent alumn. Whittier College provided the best liberal arts experience I could have imagined! Small class sizes and remarkable instructors who treated each individual with respect and dignity. Whittier is a diamond in the rough as most people mistake it for a community college, but for those who have ever had the opportunity to visit the campus or sit in on a lecture, the one thing that can be linked between Whittier College and a community college is the word community itself! Whittier has an awesome community: faculty, staff, and students alike! It is because of my experience at Whittier that I have chosen to pursue and further my education in the medical field. This small liberal arts college showed me how to give back to my community and take ownership of the things that are important, like education a cleaner and greener planet, and the capacity to show compassion in every day situations.
