Samantha Clark ’19
“Coming from such a huge university like Temple I love how quickly anyone can form a social life at WC. It’s so easy to find someone who has the same interests, or lives near you, or has the same major. Aside from a social life, everything else trickles down from the school being such a small and close-knit community. Your classes are smaller, you create a better relationship with your professor, and you do better [academically] because of that relationship.”
Jake Brown ’20
“I felt like Washington College was home right away. Washington College did a great job of helping me take the credits I had earned at Bonaventure and Chesapeake and apply them to my major at WAC so I wasn’t losing credits or set back in my studies because I transferred. Transferring to WAC taught me to be honest about what was or wasn’t the right fit for me, and it helped me understand what I was really looking for in a college.”
