“My favorite thing about Whitworth is the encouragement within the community. I find that both the students and faculty members are so positive and supporting. Without this, I would not be where I am today. I love that I am constantly pushed to do my best and am embraced with such a positive and loving community.

“The greatest learning experience I have had at Whitworth was finding what I truly want to do for a career. When I transferred to Whitworth from my community college, I had no idea what I wanted to do with my life. Through Whitworth I found my passion. After graduation, I plan to find a job teaching at an elementary school in the Eastern Washington area. I want to be a positive influence in the lives of children and help to build a greater future in our young students.

“Because of [donors’] help, I am able to have an amazing learning experience that I can pass on to my future students! I cannot say thank ¬†you enough!”
