Whitworth University is a home to those who attend it. While many come with certain expectations and ideals that are not usually met, Whitworth usually provides what students need to figure out who they actually are. Overall, the students and the professors are very kind and welcoming, and most enjoy engaging in deep, meaningful conversation. Whitworth is small but is continuing to grow and expand.
Whitworth is a great school for those looking for a small, yet busy campus. There are a lot of extracurricular activities available, especially in the arts and music. Whitworth offers a variety of majors and minors, but being a liberal arts college, many of them are Bachelors of Arts.
I thoroughly enjoy Whitworth University from an academic standpoint. The teachers are wonderful, enthusiastic, and really engage with the students and make them want to learn. They also do a lot to get everyone involved, and make people feel welcome on campus. I think it's a wonderful place for introverts and extroverts alike.
I feel that Whitworth really is the best place on earth to be. It’s my home away from home. I look forward to seeing my professors everyday, because they have become more than just an educator, they are considered as an equal partner. They take on roles of friends, mentors, even parents to us. They want us to succeed at more than just what is in the classroom. They want to know our hobbies, our interests, our home-life. We are more than just a student to teach. We create strong bonds with them that last outside the classroom.
The fall 2020 acceptance rate for Whitworth University is 88%. That means, out of _____ applications received in 2020 , _____ students were offered admission. The number of males who applied was _____ vs the number of females which was _____.
Do not worry, do not stress. College life is great and easy to make new, long lasting friends. The classes we take are not only meant to educate and prepare us for the outside world, but to allow us to grow more as a person, which is what really matters. Working hard in college is important, but stressing about it ahead of time is not good. Have fun, work hard, and the ending outcome will be whatever we want it to be.
Everything. We have awesome professors that really know what they are teaching and that makes our academics really good and our coaches are amazing so we have really strong top rated sports in the nation! Also our president is wonderful and knows each student by name and is always supporting everything we do!
I feel like Whitworth is a bubble, and a lot of the kids have not faced reall ife problems. The Christian aspect of the school probably has a lot to do with it. I feel like there is not enough diversity, and i'm not talking strictly about ethnic diversity.
The worst thing about Whiworth is the food and the recent construction on campus. The food is like any cafeteria food perhaps a little better, but if you tend to be conscientious about what goes into it, you may want to have an alternative place to eat. The construction makes it a little hard to sleep in on days when you have late classes.
Friendly, caring people who are eager to see you succeed.
I wish I had known how difficult it would be to be away from my family, friends, and the place I had called home for 18 years. I would have worked harder on appreciating the life I lived back home, and how different--not good, not bad, just different--life would be in Spokane at school.
Anyone that is really serious about pursing a career in radio, television, film, media, or graphic, should attend Specs Howard School of Broadcast Arts. It is a relly good place to start. Not only do you gain literary knowledge but, you also get hands on experience and learn to work on group projects, which in turns, help you to develop your knowledge and skills in learning how to make an idea work, through team effort. It give you a taste of what working in the industry would be like. The instructors show a true passion for the industry.
It is the right place to be for those searching for a homelike atmosphere with faculty and classes that encourages excellence and success.
We have a very strong Christian emphasis here and it influences factors in to everything we do at Whitworth. Some Christian perspective is discussed in almost every class and although the students do not need to be Christian to attend, all the professors have signed statements of faith and are Christian. Whitworth's moto is "an education of mind and heart" and they truely focus on giving you the tools to create a wonderful future full of success and service to God and humanity.
One who is willing to evaluate their beliefs and not be afraid to take on new things or ideas.
Whitworth is unique because it is a smaller school. Because it is a smaller school it has a very strong community and you get very personal attention from your teachers. This is very helpful because it continually keeps you focused on the things that are important, your education and your life. This school also has a very strong community of Christian believers, which is very helpful. I believe that it is important to surround yourself with believers and this school provides many oppurtunities to do that. There are also many internships and study abroad programs available at Whitworth University.
How hard our classes are and that we have to work much harder in order to get better grades, thus preparing us to do better after college.
I'd say that the stereotype for Whitworth students is that we are very conservative/religious and into academics. I've also heard some students from other schools label us as 'white rich kids' and 'non-partyers'.
The campus tends to be less crowded on weekends. Some students go home or visit off campus friends and relatives. Those who stay also have activities available to them. There is usually some sort of big event going on Friday and Saturday nights (a concert, dance, etc.). Some students party at the housing close to campus. This last weekend we played flashlight tag til 2AM in the back 40 and watched movies. It varies for different types of students, but for the most part there is usually something going on that will suit your interest, and if not, you can always make your own fun....people will definitely join in.
The social scene at Whitworth is basically very open. People go to primetimes and hangout in the common areas to meet people. Everyone is pretty friendly and willing to talk to other people. Athletic teams can get a little cliquey.
Whitworth is the perfect combination of low-key small school feel and larger school activity options. The people are kind, considerate, and friendly (you even get doors held for you everywhere you go), and the overall atmosphere can only be described as coffee shop meets summer camp. The classes are small enough that students go to coffee with their professors, and the profs themselves are incredibly knowledgeable and active in their fields. The campus is beautiful and well kept with trees surrounding the campus and creating what we Whitworthians call the "pinecone curtain" (just don't forget to look into the outside world every once in awhile). Overall, an amazing place with awesome opportunities! :)
Ehh...the food is alright. We have a decent number of options on any given day, but they can be hit or miss. Usually you can find something appealing, and if the cafeteria isn't looking appetizing (ahem, Sundays) there are always the cafe or coffee shop as alternate options.
Sports are Division III at Whitworth, so they aren't as big as any D1 school, but Whitworth students still go all out at football and Basketball games and shout '" 'S GO BUCS!!!" all around campus...
The professors at Whitworth are awesome! They really care about the students and even go so far as to invite students out for luch or to their homes for BBQ's. Most have doctoral degrees and are well-informed in their field. Although professors do have to have to declare their Christian faith, they are still very open and willing to look at things from a number of viewpoints.
This year, the student government chose to focus its energies on something called the Unite movement. It's a program that connects students against sex-trafficking.
