Visit Whitman

We at Whitman College are pleased to welcome students and their families to campus for visits with COVID-19 protocols, based on Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines.

Due to rising COVID-19 cases in Washington state, and in compliance with local health ordinances, campus visits will occur entirely outdoors. Please monitor weather conditions prior to your visit, and dress accordingly. Walla Walla enjoys four beautiful seasons, including occasionally snowy winters! If conditions are harsh and we deem that it is unsafe to be outdoors for a prolonged period of time, or unsafe to walk around campus, we will contact you prior to your visit to reschedule. 

Please note that the State of Washington has adopted a travel advisory recommending that visitors to Washington from other states or countries (including returning Washington residents) should practice self-quarantine for 14 days after arrival. 

Here are more details on outdoor visits:

  • Campus Tours (45 minutes) will be led by a current student and be entirely outdoors. ADA accessible tours can be easily accommodated.
  • Information Sessions with our Admission Officers (30 minutes) will be hosted outdoors in a sheltered area with space heaters.
  • Visits will be limited to one student and up to two family members per time slot.
  • Visits are for rising seniors and transfer students only at this time.
  • We will require all students, family members and admission staff to wear a face covering for the entire visit and keep a 6-foot distance from those not in their immediate family

Visit Whitman

We know that visiting in person is not a good option for everyone. We acknowledge that the spread of the coronavirus across the country and in Washington state makes travel a risk. However, we also know choosing the right college is a big decision. Campus visits are an important part of the college decision-making process and we want to do everything we can to support students through this process. We are happy to provide a variety of options for students and families for whom travel is not ideal.

Virtual Information Sessions

We are also pleased to offer virtual information sessions. During your session, get a feel for all that Whitman has to offer and submit your own questions to an admission officer via the chat box during the presentation. Students and their families are all welcome to join! We are also offering virtual interviews to rising seniors.
