Since 1782, students have come to this Maryland Eastern Shore campus at pivotal moments in their lives, seeking not only an education, but an experience like no other. Offering rigorous coursework in the liberal arts, we invite you to engage in “all hands on learning.”
Yes, George Washington played a role in our early days. And we have traditions that resonate with generations of Washington College alumni. The real history is yours to make.
Approximately 1,400 undergraduate students from 35 states and 40 nations attend WC. We have a student-to-faculty ratio of 12:1, which means your professors will likely say hi to you in the Dining Hall. Campus groups like the Douglass Cater Society of Junior Fellows and Model UN provide students with access to hands-on learning opportunities. Other student organizations are big on community service or the arts. And although we’re set in a rural location, we’re 90 minutes from Philadelphia, Baltimore and Washington, D.C.
