Whitties Helping Whitties Networking Events

Whitties Helping Whitties

Whitties Helping Whitties is a new series of events targeted at creating a professional Whitman community in key locations where we know Whitties want to reside and work. In keeping with the Whitman tradition of giving back, we encourage you to share in this night of networking - share your story, meet other Whitties working in your community and encourage those about to embark on their professional adventure.

Talk to your student about attending an event near you over Spring Break!
