What students Say

I came to WWU knowing that this was a friendly campus. What I didn’t realize was that the friendliness people experience here comes from WWU’s deep commitment to Christlike love and service. Being part of this campus has strengthened my relationship with Christ and empowered me to serve those around me.—Brooklynn Larson, class of 2016

What Alumni Say

When I came to Walla Walla as a student, I had no idea how much higher education would mold and shape my life. The liberal arts pricked academic curiosity and appreciation for literature and the fine arts, prompted cultural awareness, and, with a year of study in France, led to a fulfilling career in helping professions, and promises of enjoyable senior years to come.
—Darold Bigger, 1966
