Why Washington College? Because it is home!

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-curious 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 and a 11:1 student-to-faculty ratio, students are provided with a personalized education to succeed at WC, and also when they graduate and enter their professional careers. 

As a recent college graduate, I remember how challenging choosing a college can be and that’s why I’m here to help you 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!
