Visit us

At Washington College, we know there’s nobody else in the world who’s quite like you. That’s why we tailor our tours for visitors as much as we tailor our education for students. Whether it’s your first or your fifth trip to campus, and whether you’re interested in athletics programs or antique letter presses, we’ll help you plan a visit that’s just your style. You can choose to participate in an information session and campus tour, or a counselor interview and a tour of our waterfront campus. Or why not do it all?

I chose Washington College because they truly believe and invest in their students. No matter what you are looking to pursue, there are countless opportunities here to develop and showcase your talents.
