Preparing for Virtual Honors Scholarship Weekend

We're thrilled that you have decided to attend a Whitworth Honors Scholarship Weekend. Over the course of the day we hope you will have many chances to interact with Whitworth faculty, staff and students, and with prospective future classmates. We also hope to get to know you better through the activities below.

Prior Preparation Required 

  • Faculty Discussion Group: A Whitworth professor will lead you and a small group in a discussion of one article that will be provided to you in advance. The article will be emailed to you prior to your Honors Scholarship Weekend. You will be expected to read the article on your own and come ready to participate in discussion. Prior preparation is strongly encouraged.

No Preparation Required

  • Individual Interview: You will have approximately 15 minutes to talk one-on-one with a Whitworth faculty or staff member about yourself, your academic goals and anything else you would like us to know about you. No prior preparation is required. 
  • Essay: You will have approximately an hour to type and turn in via email an essay on a given prompt. The essay prompt will be given at the start of your essay session.
