What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is a great school, and it holds a lot of nature for those who like trees and grass. The people there are very nice, and the students there have their own traditions. In a lounge room a wall is a whiteboard anyone can write on, and professors would pass by when no students are around to mark up all the errors the student made. Some of the rooms don;t have A.C, but the rooms are very cozy if you like a small room.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Whittier College is a supportive liberal arts school. The professors are one of the best things about the college. Initially, it can be intimidating to reach out to them, but once you do they show that they have your best interest in mind. Although grades are a main focus, professors encourage students to learn outside of their classrooms, take breaks, and have fun. Since the college is small, professors also have time to check in with their students, whether it be in regards to grades or their well-being. I appreciate the small size because it is easy for people to get to know one another. Faculty within the offices on campus are responsive and offer a strong support system for students as they make their way through college. Similar to professors, they take the time to talk with you and understand your mindset. Even though I have only experienced one semester, I realize the amount of care and energy given to me as a student. I am in the stage where I have no idea what I want. The adults know that this stage is not a unique situation for a first year to feel, but they are aware of how it feels for me and treat my journey as my own. I am still trying to solidify my support system, but as time progresses I know I will find my place.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is an amazing college with several opportunities. Several sports, class option, clubs, societies, and more. Everyone is very friendly and professors are easily accessible. We value community, culture, communication, and connections. Studying abroad is also very common. It really is a nice college to pursue your dreams and get the full college experience you are looking for.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Whittier College has a great learning and social environment. As a transfer student, I enjoy it much more than my previous school. The small class sizes and professor interactions/availability are invaluable. I am a part of one honor society and one extracurricular club. I have great social interactions, with both my fellow students and alumnus of the college.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I think it is great. One thing I feel encompasses Whittier College is that it is comfortable. Students support each other and faculty is usually always willing to do the same. Aside from office hours professors also do office hours by appointment or even let you meet them at star bucks so they can help you study for your final. In terms of academics, I feel that it is an environment where you can prosper because there are so many resources such as CAAS (Center for Advising and Academic Success) where there is free tutoring and academic coaching, the Center for Career and Professional Development where you can help find a job or internship, would like to know more on pursuing higher education, or simply want to talk someone because you don't know what it is you want to pursue. There is also a Health and Wellness center where you can get some medicine, check in when your sick, or even have lab work done if necessary. There is also trained professionals such as therapist and psychologists where you can take care of your emotional health. Immediately when you walk in you will find yourself in a calm and welcoming environment, of which the services they provide is completely free! There is ALWAYS events going on in school from all the multitude of clubs on campus , the departments, and organizations. Fun fact: there is usually all this free stuff! Though I love Whittier there are some problems with how well the administration is managed, but you can always go try in another department to solve your concern/ issue. Also, sometimes the wifi will go down or become very slow when too many are using it. All in all though Whittier is a great college to grow academically and as an individual. I can testify to that living alone and being on the Dean's List. If you have any further questions though or would like to know more please feel free to email me at perez.monique1090@gmail.com. Thanks!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Whittier College is an excellent small school. The small school setting will force students who are shy or quiet the chance to open up and be heard. The classes are small; there is only one lecture hall that can seat 100, so there is always a good chance the professor will call on you. This doesn't mean that the professors are trying to pick on you; they just want to help you better yourself. If you're willing to reach out and ask for help, the professors will be there to answer your questions.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I overall have a good view of Whittier College overall. I have been living on campus for my almost 2 years here and have for the most part felt comfortable. Nothing is perfect, but there are plenty opportunities for you to express your opinion and find any help you may need for work, living, or life issues.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The College is very small, something that creates a sense of community. When a student arrives for the first time, they may feel left out because everyone around them seems to have someone to talk to, however upon being at the college for more than five minutes, any student will realize that the people here are very friendly and that there is a plethora of services and resources that the college dedicates specifically for students. The professors will come in and make all possible adjustments to make sure that all students have a place and that they are adequately accommodated.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Very small campus, where it almost forces everybody to interact with each other and that is a huge positive. Professors are very inviting and provide office hours for students, some can be flexible with time as long as you are communicating with them and are showing effort in class.
