Founded in 1882, Whitman College is a selective private, independent, co-ed, nonsectarian residential liberal arts college located in Walla Walla, Washington.
Whitman’s 1,498 students come from 42 states and 31 countries. Our students are explorers of their world, whether that means digging in – to the rugged beauty of Washington’s landscapes during a pre-Orientation Scramble, for example – or heading out – as in, say, studying health and social policy in South Africa for a year. Friendship Families help international students settle in, and the four language houses on campus are home to native speakers of French, German, Spanish and Japanese, who help residents improve language skills and gain first-hand knowledge of cultural customs without ever leaving Walla Walla. Every Whitman student has the opportunity to become a global citizen.
