About Whitman College

Whitman College provides a rigorous liberal arts education of the highest quality to passionate and engaged students from diverse backgrounds. Whitman students develop their intellectual and creative capacities in a supportive scholarly community that prioritizes student learning within and beyond our classrooms. We help each student translate their deep local, regional, and global experiences into ethical and meaningful lives of purpose.  Perhaps it's our location in the Pacific Northwest. Maybe it's the dynamic community of supportive peers, caring and mentoring professors, and friendly staff who live and work here. Whatever it is, to visit our beautiful, facility-rich campus is to find a place that is distinctively different from other college campuses across the nation. Whitman students live and work on a residential campus that doubles as both an arboretum and an outdoor art museum. Located in a welcoming college town, it is a place that is home to an extraordinary diversity of talents, interests, activities and people. It's easy to venture outside your comfort zone, extend yourself intellectually, collaborate with others and share new ideas and insights. You will find the teachers, friendships, resources, inspiration, time, and space you need to discover yourself and your ability to make a difference in the world.  Take a virtual tour!
