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 families that takes place on select dates during the fall and spring semesters. Your day will begin at 9:45 a.m. and end at 3 p.m. (or thereabouts) and will feature the following activities:
- Campus tour
- Admissions presentation
- Mock lecture by Whitworth professor
- Student panel
- A total of one guest is welcome to join you for the entire program. While students are in a mock lecture, guests are invited to attend a parent seminar.
As you prepare for your Why Whitworth Day, please note the following:
