Why Choose Whitman?
A Place Apart

Whitman College — www.whitman.edu — is not just a college where curious minds thrive in their pursuit of knowledge. It is a place that offers a perfect balance of natural beauty, history, and all the modern comforts you would expect. One of the nation’s premier liberal arts colleges, Whitman is in a location ideal for intellectual reflection and contemplation. It is a place where landscaped pathways (as well as modern technologies) seamlessly connect historic buildings of timeless beauty to cutting-edge computer and science labs and athletic facilities, or a new 24-hour health care facility that offers free services to students, or a comprehensive library that stays open 24/7 during the academic year. Above all, it is a vibrant, close-knit, residential community where — from academics to athletics and dynamic student clubs — people collaborate, support, and connect with one another in powerful ways. In fact, about 75 percent of Whitman’s 1,450 students live on campus, where they find a liberating, diverse environment rich in ideas, personality, and perspective.
