  • General Information
    About Washington College

    In 1782, George Washington agreed to give his name to Washington College, an independent institution of the liberal arts and sciences on the Chester River, at the edge of the Chesapeake Bay. Here the College’s founder, William Smith, sought to create an environment in which students would think “closely and justly,” develop the arts of “writing, speaking, acting, and living well” and thus be freed from “all prejudices, with relations to idle disputes, distinctions, and opinions, till liberal education and ripe judgment should make them capable of thinking for themselves.” More than two centuries later, Washington College continues to affirm these ideals.


    Institutional statistical data was gathered from the U.S. Department of Education - Institute of Education Sciences, National Center for Education Statistics, 2009-2010.
