Whitman College Top Questions

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?


The school is small - less than 1500 students total. This leaves the campus lacking in diversity in the areas of academic fields of study and extracurricular activities.


Although Whitman encourages students to explore many interests both in class and outside of class, I feel that the manner in which you must determine a major is rather limiting. I wish there were more major choices that combined different areas of interest, allowing students to pursue multiple interests without having to fulfill two or three separate major requirements.
