Campus Life

You’ll know it the moment you step onto campus; this is a place where you can easily feel at home.

At Washington College, the vibe is friendly. It's where you can be you while you discover new interests and make lifelong friends. 

What happens after class?

You will be as busy as you want to be! Our students spend their leisure time working out, playing music, planting gardens, and rallying around a cause. About 25 percent of our student body join a fraternity or sorority, and 30 percent participate in varsity sports. The Office of Student Affairs encompasses a variety of student services—from the Office of Student Engagement who organizes a host of events to Residential Life who makes sure WC is a home away from home. Other offices from the Office of Intercultural Affairs to Career Development help our students develop into thoughtful citizen-leaders.

The student who makes the most of the undergraduate experience embraces every opportunity to learn, to explore, and to demonstrate the power of one person to make a difference.
