Antonia's background is in secondary education, having received a Master's in Education (in Curriculum and Instruction) from the University of Illinois in 2013. She also holds a BA in History from Reed College after a disastrous attempt at a combined Chemistry-Art major that lasted about a semester and a half before collapsing entirely.

Janet Mallen (she/her/hers or they/them/theirs) says: "Hi! I am a Southern California native, and have lived in many places: all along the California Central Coast; Okinawa Japan; Portland, Oregon; and, most recently, Oxford, Ohio. Now, I am back in Walla Walla after a 5 year hiatus to join the team in the ARC. My main goal is to help Whitties thrive academically and to help remove any barriers to success. I bring experience with teaching, advising, work as a registrar, community building, and a passion for helping students tap into and grow their strengths. My ever-expanding education includes an AA from San Diego Mesa College, a BA in English from the University of California, Santa Barbara, and a MS in Student Affairs in Higher Education from Miami University. I am a US Marine Corps veteran, and a proud parent. I love drinking good coffee, hiking, hanging out with friends, and traveling-I have wandered widely, and have more to see. I love learning!"

Student InternMemorial 325
Holden Gaupo says: "My name is Holden Gaupo and I am the ARC Intern. In the first semester of my sophomore year, I was an SA in Anderson and I absolutely loved it. Being an SA was such a fun and rewarding experience, far more so then I imagined. Now, as the ARC Intern I have the opportunity to grow and to shape the SA program. I am a Politics major and a Spanish minor. I have been taking Spanish since kindergarten, and speaking and learning it has become one of my passions. Politics started really interesting me around my sophomore year of high school and now is something I always enjoy discussing and learning more about. Outside of academics, I enjoy playing badminton, watching shows (Game of Thrones and How I Met your Mother are a couple of my favorites), and reading for pleasure. The Whitman community has come to mean a lot to me and it has given a lot to me. In my role as ARC Intern I hope to further build the Whitman community."
