Whitman College

Considered to be the 'Ivy League of the Inland Northwest,' Whitman College is home to what the Princeton Review dubbed the 14th best college theater in the nation: Harper Joy Theatre, which puts on eight to ten full-length productions each year. Check out the theater poster collection — it's one of the largest in the nation. Whitman also sports a new visual arts building, the Sheehan Art Gallery and Chism Hall, which gives free classical concerts at 4:00 pm on Fridays.
