Where we are is who we are.
Since 1782, students have come to this Maryland Eastern Shore campus at pivotal moments in their lives, seeking not only an education, but an experience like no other. Offering rigorous coursework in the liberal arts, we invite you to engage in “all hands on learning.”
Your revolution starts here.
Approximately 1,450 undergraduate students from 35 states and 40 nations attend Washington College. We have a student-to-faculty ratio of 11:1, which means your professors will likely say hi to you in the Dining Hall. Campus groups like the Douglass Cater Society of Junior Fellows and Model UN provide students with access to hands-on learning opportunities. Other student organizations are big on community service or the arts. And although we’re set in a rural location, we’re 90 minutes from Philadelphia, Baltimore and Washington, D.C.
