The absolute best thing about Whitworth is the faculty - every professor who works there cares about their students, put together challenging and interesting courses, and makes themselves...
The only downside, in my opinion, is its location in Spokane, WA. The university itself has become very involved with the community, but in general Spokane is a small city with not a lot to do on...
The student-teacher ratio is not only high - about 20:1 - but many of the teachers are personally committed to making an individual difference in the lives of their students. My one and only mentor...
This is a homogeneous school. There's a little ethnic diversity, but to be honest, very little. I have black hair and surrounded by a sea of blonde when I'm in class. This isn't a bad thing because...
The best thing about Whitworth is the resident assistant staff. They work to make underclassmen feel welcome, and keep upperclassmen connected.
The costs really cause many students to stumble. Many cannot continue their education here because they are not able to afford it with the current economy.
Every student at this school needs A nice winter coat because we have white Christmases.
I wish I knew that i could have brought more room decor. I flew to Washington from Colorado so I was fairly reserved in frugal in the amount of stuff I brought and bought. I also wished that I would have not stressed out so much about academics. I have learned so much about my studying style and have done so much better, so I wished I would have relaxed more.

I wish I knew I wish I had known I had nothing to worry about. The time I spent worrying about the future (who am I going to hangout with, what will I do if I don't like my roommate, what if, what if, what if?) turned out to be a waste of energy. I wish I had just relaxed and gotten ready to meet my best friends, and make some great memories.
