Whitworth University Reviews
Did I have an excellent academic experience in the English and Theology departments? Yes, yes I did. I had personal letters of recommendation from professors who knew me by name which was a major plus. However, I absolutely cannot justify the cost.
I truly believe no 18 year old realizes what they are signing up for.
Is “the college experience worth $125,000-$150,000?” No way! I would not attend Whitworth again. I’d do running start and go to a state university.
And be prepared! Whitworth will call and text you for fundraising until you die. I graduated 12 years ago and still get numerous requests every year. I paid large tuitions when I was there, many students are still paying their student loans, and the university still calls us to raise more money.
Whitworth was great, just not worth the $150,000 price tag.
