Whitman College is a nationally recognized residential liberal arts college offering over 45 majors and boasts an intimate classroom setting, with a 9:1 student-to-faculty ratio. Students come from 42 states and 31 countries and about 40% of them study abroad in their junior year. Whitman also prides itself on the rather unusual statistic of having a one-to-one student to tree ratio.

  • The tree-lined campus is home to an intellectually dynamic, diverse, active, and supportive community. 
  • The student to faculty ratio is nine to one, which may allow for more contact time with professors.
  • Students at Whitman can participate in 88 off-campus programs in over 40 different countries. 
  • Students can choose from over 100 clubs on campus and outdoor programs, including Scrambles, an immersive orientation trip.
