Whittier College is noted as one of the nation’s best institutions for undergraduates to earn their degree by The Princeton Review, an education services company that profiles and recommends colleges and universities throughout the country.
Whittier’s professors, campus life, diversity, and location received high marks in the company’s annual guidebook, The Best 385 Colleges—2020 Edition.
"We salute Whittier College for its outstanding academics and we are truly pleased to recommend it to prospective applicants searching for their personal ‘best-fit’ college,” said Robert Franek, The Princeton Review's Editor-in-Chief and lead author of The Best 385 Colleges.
In its profile, students praised Whittier for its prevalent one-on-one interactions among professor and students. Whittier students surveyed for the guide said “professors are engaged, love what they do,” and “truly care about the success of their students, both academically and personally.”
Only about 13% of America’s 3,000 four-year colleges are profiled in the book, which includes detailed profiles with rating scores for various categories including academics, student life, and student body, among others. The company chooses the colleges for the book based on data it annually collects from administrators at hundreds of colleges about their institutions’ academic offerings. The Princeton Review also considers data it gathers from its surveys of college students who rate and report on various aspects of their campus and community experiences for this project.
