My favorite thing about Whitman is going to sound pretty cheesy and broad, but I like the culture. It feels like a safe place for students to really try new things and become passionate in all sorts of different things. There is definitely a level of competition because it’s a very good school, but there’s also, everywhere you go, just a culture of support and really helping each other which I think is probably pretty unique to Whitman.Life at Whitman
