Among the nation's leading liberal arts institutions, we have a definite advantage. Washington College is situated in one of the most lovingly preserved communities in the United States, on the scenic Chester River on Maryland's Eastern Shore. And we're just 75 miles from the nation's capital. So when Washington's movers and shakers need a respite, they come to Chestertown-and frequently connect with Washington College. The character of the Chesapeake region not only helps define who we are, but shapes your own college experience.
