Whittier is definitely not a conservative school. The professors are very progressive and forward thinking, especially in the humanities and art departments.
There is NO religious affiliation with Quakers anymore. I remember there being a seminar course that students could choose to take about Quaker philosophy, but it wasn't mandatory and the school is secular.
I personally love our mascot, the Poet, based on the famous poet John Greenleaf Whittier. There isn't as much of an emphasis on sports at Whittier, but our mascot illustrated that the "pen is mightier than the sword."
