As part of the Pirate Preview program, high school juniors are invited to stay overnight with our current students in a residence hall on campus. Your overnight host will introduce you to other students, to residence-hall programs and to campus activities. Bring your sleeping bag, pillow, towel and toiletries (a sleeping pad or air mattress is optional).
Transportation is available between campus and the Spokane airport, train station and bus depot for students traveling without a parent or guardian. Shuttles will be scheduled on an individual basis, so please request transportation at least two weeks prior to your visit to guarantee the availability of our drivers.
If you will be driving yourself to/from the airport, please allow at least 40 minutes for your drive to the Whitworth campus.
Parents and guests, we encourage you to attend Pirate Preview with your son or daughter to ask questions they may not consider and to help them process their experience. Since campus housing is limited to students, here are some suggestions for nearby accommodations.
