Why Whitworth Days

"Why Whitworth?" isn't just a rhetorical question. We really do want you to discover anything and everything that will help you learn why Whitworth could be a great school for you. Why Whitworth is a program for prospective students and their parents that takes place on select dates during the fall and spring semesters. Your day will begin at 10 a.m. and end at 3 p.m. (or thereabouts) and will feature the following activities:

  • Campus tour
  • Admissions presentation
  • Class visit(s) of your choice
  • Student panel
  • Lunch in the dining hall (student meals are on us)
  • Your parents are welcome to join you for the entire program. While you visit a class, your parents are invited to attend a parent seminar.

These appointments will take place either before or after the Why Whitworth program, which runs from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.
  • Unfortunately, we are unable to host parents overnight on campus. Please see the Local Accommodations list for recommended hotels close to campus. Most of the listed hotels offer a reduced rate – just let the desk clerk know that you're visiting Whitworth.
