Why Washington College? Because it is home!

Hi, my name is Karly Oristian and I’m so happy that you’re considering Washington College in your college search. Growing up on the Eastern Shore of Maryland, I can attest to all the great, personal attributes both Chestertown and Washington College have to offer. Located in historic Chestertown, this 120-acre, waterfront campus is home to academically-intrigued students who are determined to explore all of their interests without limitations.

A liberal arts education at Washington College will not only allow you the opportunity to grow as a young professional, but also to flourish as an individual. Recognized nationally as a prestigious liberal arts college, Washington College offers more than 30 academic majors and a combination of 30 different minors and concentrations. With an average classroom size of 17 students, a 12:1 student-to-faculty ratio, internship rate of 79%, and a 85% placement rate after graduation, students are provided with the skills and education to not only succeed during their time here at WC, but also when they graduate and enter their professional careers. Washington College may be small but it’s surely mighty!

As a recent college graduate, I remember how challenging choosing a college can be and that’s why I’m here to help you with every step of the way! I can’t wait to show you the countless opportunities this college has to offer and I hope one day you can call Chestertown your home, too!
