Review Whitworth University
I have really enjoyed my experience at Whitworth so far! As a freshman, Whitworth was really great with helping me adapt to the big changes that come with college. Specifically at Whitworth, I have really enjoyed the traditiation for freshmen and all the events that it contained. I really enjoyed the events on campus during weekends. I wish the price could be cheaper so that it was easier to enjoy such a great education at Whitworth. I have met great friends who would probably answer the same as me. Another improvement I think Whitworth could make is making sure that students are able to understand how to get a job once they have finished college. This might be an improvement with the advisers but I think students need help with stress and knowing we can find stable careers out of college that correspond with our majors.
I really enjoy the athletics at Whitworth. My personal favorite is Men's Basketball! It is probably the biggest sport on campus and so many people attend and enjoy the games. They are always so fun and exciting to watch. I really loved how Whitworth had "Monday Madness" before the season really started it was a great pep rally for the sport. I played in the basketball intramurals and I absolutely loved it. It connected me with many students that I might not have met otherwise and it allowed me to continue to play the sport I love.
One of Whitworth's goals is to promote diversity on campus. Racially/ethnically, we have many students from all over the US and even from other countries. I find the students very accepting of all different backgrounds. With this in mind, I would still say we're mostly white. Economically, I have found many students very accepting of all backgrounds; we all know Whitworth is expensive so everyone is mostly struggling with the price. Politically, I know students on both ends of the spectrum and I find everyone to be respectful. Religiously, the student body is mostly Christian since the university is Christian, but non-Christians are accepted. In regards to sexual orientation, Whitworth does not seem to have many LGBTQ students, but, from what I know, students are respectful, even if they don't necessarily agree.
