Faculty to Student Ratio

Educating the whole student is the goal of the liberal arts curriculum at Washington College. It is a goal that calls for active participation on the part of both faculty and students. The College values its role as a microcosm for today’s students who seek a liberal arts education. Washington College’s size lends itself to educating the whole student in intensely personal, important ways. With one professor for every 9 students, teachers know their students by name rather than by College ID number.
