About Whitman College
Whitman College is proud to partner with College Horizons in service of our shared interest in increasing access to higher education for Native American, Alaska Native and Native Hawaiian students. We look forward to hosting the College Horizons program on campus for the fourth time, and to welcoming all participants to our picturesque corner of the Pacific Northwest.
Founded in 1882, Whitman College ranks among the top private liberal arts institutions in the nation. Our student body hails from 45 states and 30 countries. With 45 majors and an average class sizes of 15, we offer a student-faculty ratio of 9:1. Whitman College is located in Walla Walla, Washington, a town of about 30,000 nestled at the foot of the Blue Mountains. Named as one of America’s best small towns and among the friendliest places to live, Walla Walla is famous for its sprawling wheat fields, sweet onions and mild climate.
Whitman College is a vibrant, residential learning community known for attracting students who represent the Whitman mosaic—down to earth, high achievers with diverse backgrounds and interests. Whitman students' intellectual vitality, confidence, leadership skills and adaptability make it possible for them to succeed as global citizens in an ever-changing and multicultural world. Twenty percent of our student body self-identifies as students of color.
More than 100 clubs and organizations are active on campus, including the Indigenous People’s Education and Culture Club, along with 22 musical ensembles, a nationally renowned theatre program, Division III varsity athletics and exceptional outdoor program. Whitman also offers a summer fly-in program designed to help ease the transition to college life for first-generation and working class students. Native American cultural activities are celebrated on campus and in the surrounding community, including at the nearby Confederated Tribes of the Umatilla Indian Reservation.
