As we welcome your son or daughter to Whitman, we also want to welcome you to the Whitman family. Like many institutions, we generate our fair share of literature. Most of it is directed to students and contains important information like Whitman’s academic calendar, orientation dates, college requirements, campus activities, and special events. Many parents see this material, but few are able to capture the details before the handbooks are packed for Walla Walla.
This handbook is designed especially for you as a parent of a new Whitman student. It contains information that you will find handy for reference and phone numbers to call in case questions arise. Please keep this information close at hand and refer to it as necessary throughout your student’s time at Whitman.
