My classmates are generally white. There is about 75% white and 25% people of color. when I talk about racism or disparaties for people of color in class, white students get very upset. They don't want to hear about how racism damages us all until we begin to have discussions about it. Changing systems should be incorporated into every university and institution and Whitworth University Spokane is very progressive in that they create a safe zone where we can talk about disproportionality in educational outcomes and why that is occurring (racism). As a Native American, I get fully share.
It is rare today that you find classmates that actually want each other to do well no element of sabotage or ill will is found among the school; the students are competing, and each person is intelligent enough to make any competition good sport, but few shy away from group dynamic study methods; diversity is found in the many academic directions and personal thoughts, providing the most diverse world view of any Christian College I am aware of, though in appearance the campus is decidedly white.
They are engaged and excited about learning and the college experience. A lot of people really love the outdoors and being active. There is always a variety of activities going on so you can find something you love. There is high concern for the world and a challenge to be asking good, hard questions.
In my experience so far, Whitworth students make up a community of people hungry to learn and grow both mentally and spiritually?a community wanting to see its fellow members succeed, flourish, and impact the world in big ways.
There is a wide range of personalities on campus, from star athletes to pastors' kids to your every-day college student, so chances are you will meet a bunch of people with interests just like yours.
My classmates are wonderfull people, they are all like minded, and love the Lord. I love going to school with the amazing people that im blessed to be around.
Students came from all over the country, as well as different countries, to receive a thorough liberal arts education from a Christian perspective.
My classmates are critical thinkers, interesting people, and wonderful men and women of God.
Highly active, highly motivated, and always willing to learn and share their experience.
Devoted to acedemics and social community within the University.
