A “BEST IN THE WEST” UNIVERSITY
“There were a lot of factors that contributed to my decision to attend Whitworth, but ultimately it came down to the ‘vibes’ I got when I visited campus, and the quality of the forensics team here. I was going back and forth between this school and another one in the PNW, but when I came to Whitworth’s campus and interacted with the students, there was this inviting energy that was unparalleled to other schools that I had visited prior.”Chauncella Koulibali, psychology
“Whitworth felt like a great fit to me because of the small class sizes and tight-knit community. Also, I wanted an environment that understood my Christian motives for doing science.”

Number of countries in which Whitworth students may study abroad
“My professors connected me with the right combination of study abroad and internship opportunities that ultimately helped me build both hard and soft skills and grow a professional network in my field. As a result, I had multiple political and government job offers and interviews lined up before I had even graduated – something I would not have been set up for without faculty that knew me, cared about me, and encouraged me to take the leap.”
