Moreover, Whittier made The Princeton Review's list of the top 126 higher education institutions in the West. Only about 14% of the nation’s 2,700 four-year colleges are profiled in The Princeton Review guide. Colleges for the book are chosen based on data annually collected from surveys of 2,000 college administrators about their institutions’ academic offerings. The company also reviews data from its surveys of college students attending the schools.
As in previous years, Whittier College professors received top marks from students surveyed. “Discussions are highly encouraged and interesting debates fostered and assigned papers ‘always force you to stretch your knowledge,’” reads one entry. The College was also praised for providing a good breadth of courses, Whittier "is a great school for those who are trying to figure out what they want to do or those who want to create their own major.”
