Whittier College is among the more than 320 four-year colleges included in the 2019 Fiske Guide to Colleges, which lists the best and most interesting institutions in the United States, Canada, Great Britain, and Ireland.
The College has consistently been included in the list for more than seven years.
Inclusion in the Fiske Guide is based on a broad range of factors, including student body, academics, social life, financial aid, campus setting, housing, food, and extracurricular activities. Featuring direct quotes from students, the guide gives readers and insider’s look at what it’s really like to attend Whittier.
The Fiske Guide is an annual publication that aims to help guide college-bound students and their parents to select the institution that is best for them. Created by Edward B. Fiske, the former education editor for The New York Times, the publication has served as a top independent guide to the best schools for more than 35 years.
