Information for Incoming Students

Student Academic Advisers (SAs) are some of Whitman's best students. They live in the first-year residence halls so they can meet you where you are and offer guidance and support. They are excited to be your guide for your first term as a Whittie!

SAs are on hand to help you:

  • Transition to the college as you head to and get settled into your dorm and head to classes 
  • Navigate the campus, from finding (and using!) a multitude of resources to understanding all the things first-years need to know!
  • Adapt to college life, coursework, and academic challenges

Once we have completed the hiring process for the Fall 2018 SA cohort, we will have their pictures and some information up here, so that you'll already know at least one person on campus when you arrive in the Fall!

If you have any questions about our Student Academic Adviser (SA) program, please contact Janet Mallen
