I left this school almost three years ago,Psychology
I left this school almost three years ago, and without a doubt, it was the best decision of my life. The staff here are arrogant, unhelpful, and more worried about their own reputations than they are about anyone else. The student body with few exceptions are not much better. I have friends who still go here, but they will soon be gone, and with them, the last few vestiges of positive feeling I have to this pathetic excuse of a college. SORRY.

This college is way to worked up.Quite BrightPreMed and Medical
This college is way to worked up. It prides itself on helping students and the professors being great, when in reality the science department, especially the chemistry department is terrible. They really do not care if you do terrible, they just want to get through the material. I am thinking about transferring very soon. This college is way to expense for the crap education they actually provide.

I had a lot of reservations about attendingQuite BrightAnthropology
I had a lot of reservations about attending such a small school in an area as isolated as Walla Walla. And while you don't get much exposure to the greater Walla Walla area unless you really make an effort to do so, being a part of the 'Whitman bubble' was one of the greatest experiences of my life. I met lifelong friends who became confident in who they are as a direct result of the open environment that Whitman fosters. I wouldn't trade my time at Whitman for anything in the world, and am deeply saddened that it is now at a close. What is comforting though, is that my Whitman education has earned me acceptance into a prestigious graduate program and I have received a research assistantship that will pay for my graduate education.
