What is a Scramble?

Start your Whitman career off right by participating in a Scramble! Each August, small groups of incoming first-years join three upperclass student leaders on an outdoor adventure in the Pacific Northwest. Incoming students are introduced to the region surrounding Whitman and Walla Walla, and have the opportunity to meet fellow first-years and older students during their week-long experience of a lifetime.

Scrambles provide an excellent opportunity for incoming students to meet current students, learn about Whitman, and gain a greater understanding of what to expect when they begin college. Scrambles also ease the transition from summer activities to college life by giving first-years the chance to meet new friends before school begins. So, how about taking a week before school starts for a wilderness adventure?

In 2015, the Outdoor Program will offer 20 Scrambles. These trips will include backpacking in the Wallowas, Olympics, Strawberrys, Elkhorns, Mt. St. Helens, and the North Cascades, sea kayaking in the San Juan Islands, canoeing on Ross Lake, rock climbing at Smith Rock, and whitewater kayaking and rafting on the Salmon River.

Most trips are designed for participants with little or no outdoor experience, but there are some strenuous trips for the more seasoned outdoor adventurer. 

There is also one early Scramble offered for athletes, international students and SCORE participants. That trip will return with time for students to make most commitments to their sport, orientation, and/or program.
