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
  • Lunch (student meals are on us)
  • A total of one guest is welcome to join you for the entire program. While students are in a mock lecutre, guests are invited to attend a parent seminar.

Why Whitworth registration will open once on-campus visits have been approved by the Spokane Regional Health District.

  • Avoid visiting campus if you:
    • Are experiencing any COVID-19 symptoms that are not caused by another health condition (fever, cough, shortness of breath, etc)
    • Are a member of a high-risk population (those over age 65, with moderate to severe asthma, with chronic lung, heart and/or liver disease, with diabetes, with immunocompromised conditions, or with chronic kidney issues who are doing dialysis treatments)
    • Have had close contact to someone that has tested positive for COVID-19 14 days prior to your visit
    • Have had COVID-19 symptoms that are not caused by another health condition in the last 10 days
