Why I Chose Whitman

A small liberal arts school with a supportive community is what drew my attention to Whitman. While my peers in high school were firm in their choice of their next path, I was always a person of many interests. A liberal arts college such as Whitman really helped me understand myself and choose a direction I am eager to pursue in the future!

Favorite Things to Do in Walla Walla

Eating food! Away from home and in a totally different culture, eating good food is one way I comfort myself. Walla Walla offers a great variety of great food only a few minutes away.

Favorite Spot on Campus

Ankeny Field. It is always full of students throwing a frisbee, kicking a ball around, enjoying the sun or catching up on school work–a true representation of what Whitman is all about.

My Advice for Going Through the College Process

The Office of Admission is not a scary place. Everyone on their team is very happy to help you with anything and make this process easier.
