Plenty of drinking, some marijuana use, mostly confined to weekends.
College Freshman 2013-12-04T06:35:37Z
Plenty of computers in multiple locations.

First-year, haven't lived off campus yet.

Walla Walla is a tourist town, so some nice businesses here.
College Freshman 2013-12-04T06:30:39Z
Many students don't have cars, so parking is available.
College Freshman 2013-12-04T06:26:54Z
Good classes, good opportunities. Some social justice kinks.
College Freshman 2013-12-04T06:23:39Z
Hard for middle class students to get aid.
College Freshman 2013-12-04T06:22:11Z
A bit of Whittie v. 'townie' culture.
College Freshman 2013-11-12T22:38:11Z
Walla Walla is a small town with not much outside of it. There is plenty to do both on and off campus so it isn't usually a problem, but if you're used to a big city/a lot of shopping options it'll be an adjustment. Food and shopping is great quality but there isn't a large variety.

There is a small airport in Walla Walla but it almost exclusively flies to Seattle. There are also plenty of bus options. A great option is ride sharing, since so many people live in Seattle, Portland, or Spokane you can often get a ride to a bigger city and fly out from there if needed.

Whitman strives for a very campus but with its high tuition and distance from big cities it is definitely lacking. There are many rich Seattleites here. But there are certainly groups and clubs for people who are in some way different (Black Students Union, Club Latino, GLBTQ Club, First Gen/Working Class Club)
College Freshman 2013-11-12T22:30:58Z
There are definitely party options at the frat houses on the weekend and at off campus houses, but there is no pressure to party if you don't want to. You can easily find other things to do on the weekends. The bar and club scene here is nonexistent -- it's really just parties within the campus.

There are three main dining halls as well as a cafeteria in Reid Campus Center. Two of the dining halls serve the same/similar dishes but between the three you can almost always find something you like since each has ~3 options for every meal. Reid is also a popular option as well because it is open later and has more options. Reid and the cafe in the library (open 8 pm-1 am) both use flex spending.

Greek life plays a significant role on campus but it isn't overwhelming.
College Freshman 2013-11-12T22:23:30Z
Unless you have a car your options are limited to downtown. There are quite a few places there but for cheaper food/fast food you'll need to find a ride. Most places close pretty early, even on weekends.
College Freshman 2013-11-12T22:21:45Z
Process was as simple as it can be, and the financial aid office is extremely helpful with any questions or concerns.
College Freshman 2013-11-12T22:20:24Z
I'm not very involved with sports on campus so I can't give a fair rating. But from what I've seen sports seem to be fun and encouraging. Many students show support and school spirit.
College Freshman 2013-11-12T22:17:59Z
Residence Hall staff is fantastic, very well trained to handle just about anything. Halls are comfortable and all are close to academic buildings. The only exception is North Hall -- it's a bit out of the way. Nothing outside of walking distance though. Another issue is the lack of AC during the summer months, as Prentiss Hall is the only one with AC.
College Freshman 2013-11-12T22:15:21Z
Beautiful campus. Plenty of great places to study or socialize. All facilities are well taken care of and current.
College Freshman 2013-11-12T22:14:19Z
Average weather, not too hot or cold. Rains slightly more than average but nothing unbearable.
College Freshman 2013-11-12T22:13:42Z
Health & Safety:
Security present throughout night and available to walk students home if they request, new security app is great, security posts throughout campus to call for help. There have been a few car break ins and bike thefts lately but if you properly store/lock your items you will have no problem.
College Freshman 2013-11-12T22:11:34Z
Computers and printers in most academic buildings, available 24/7 in library, wifi is decent but occasionally cuts out (only for a minute or so)
College Freshman 2013-11-03T03:44:21Z
Health & Safety:
The health center is always open (and willing to unjudgmentally help if you've had too much to drink), and the security staff is friendly and helpful.

The town is small, but if you want to get out of the tiny "downtown" area, you need a vehicle. The college doesn't provide any transportation, so the best you can do is hope one of your friends has a car.
College Freshman 2013-11-03T03:42:11Z
You need a computer for school work, but you can usually find an available one in the library or in a lab. The internet is spotty in the dorms.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
