Reasons to attend and to not attend Washington College

To Attend

  • “The alumni network is going to help you out immensely. Everyone that has graduated from Washington College is going to help you out.”
  • “If you want a family or community environment. It’s more of a tight-knit place where you can know people’s faces and names.”
  • “The professors are accommodating and want to help you succeed. You can gain pretty personal relationships with your professors because classes are small and there are opportunities to work with them.”
  • “For Environmental Science majors, it’s right on the Chesapeake Bay so it’s one of the best places in the nation to go for Environmental Science. You have a lot of partnerships with local places, like bird banding stations and all sorts of things.”

To Not Attend

  • “You have to have a car here if you want to go somewhere.”
  • “If you’re a minority, you may feel out of place at times. That is only because most of the activities are created by White people and they are the ones having fun at them, while the minorities may not be familiar with them.”
  • “It’s really small. It’s very, very small. If you’re not looking for that, don’t go to WAC.”
  • “The nightlife is not crazy. You’re not going to a top party school. You can make it fun, but it’s not going to be a big state school.”
