Oct. 21-22, 2018
Join us for this two-day, one-night event to explore campus, attend classes that interest you, discover opportunities outside the classroom and connect with members of the Whitworth community. Preview what it's like to be a student at Whitworth by spending the night in a residence hall, joining in current student activities, and learning what it takes to become a Whitworth Pirate.
Pirate Preview begins Sunday afternoon at 12:30 p.m. and concludes Monday afternoon at 12:30 p.m.
Event participation is $25 per student. Student registration includes on-campus lodging, two meals and the Pirate Preview program. To register and submit the event participation fee, please complete the online registration form. Space is limited, so please register early! Fall Pirate Preview registration begins in August.
Please note: Registration is not complete until we have received your event participation fee.
As part of the Pirate Preview programs, we invite up to 125 high school seniors and transfer students to stay overnight with our current students in a residence hall on campus. If necessary, we will create a waitlist for the overnight portion of the event. Your overnight host will introduce you to other current 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). For additional information about the overnight stay, please see our Visit FAQ.
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 are planning to fly into Spokane, please be sure your flight arrives no later than 12:00 p.m. on Sunday and departs no earlier than 1:30 p.m. on Monday.
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 student. There is no cost to attend. Registration includes the Pirate Preview program parent activities on Sunday and Monday. Meals are optional and can be purchased in the dining hall for $8.50/person. Since campus housing is limited to students, here are some suggestions for nearby accommodations.
