Why did you choose Washington College?

I chose Washington College because of its academic and scholarship opportunities. And, as a biology/environmental science major, I couldn’t pass up the benefits of having a River & Field campus.

Reccommended Class?

I would definitely reccommend taking an anthropology course in your time at Washington College. I believe that having an understanding of human evolution and the diversity of our cultures helps you better appreciate the personal, lived experiences of everyday life. I would also suggest taking an art course with Professor Harvey to help notice and uncode the temporal patterns in the physical world.
