Visiting Whitman College
High School Students & Other Visitors
We’re excited to welcome prospective students and their families to campus for in-person visits. We look forward to meeting you and helping you explore all Whitman has to offer.
Join us for a special day–Fall for Whitman Day!
You and your family are invited to visit us on October 15 for a full day of exploring all that awaits you at Whitman. You’ll get to sit in on a college class, chat with admission officers and meet current students!
Can't make it? No problem! We offer year-round visits that include a campus tour followed by an information session. If you're a rising high school senior, you will also have the option to schedule an interview when you register for your visit.
Once you visit, we think you’ll love it here.
For Rising Seniors: Schedule an Interview
High school seniors can schedule an on-campus interview when they visit—look for that option when you schedule your visit. We'd love to get to know you better and answer any questions you have about your college search.
No pressure! Interviews are casual and not required for applicants. If you're not able to visit Whitman at this time, you can also arrange for a virtual interview.
Visits: What to Expect
For the safety of our community, we require all visitors to be fully vaccinated. Effective Aug. 24, 2022, Whitman College requires N95 or equivalent masks to be worn in all indoor public settings. The college anticipates that this will be a temporary precaution as the school year gets underway.
- Campus visits start from our Office of Admission at Penrose House, 515 Boyer Ave.
- Campus tours take place mostly outdoors, so please monitor weather conditions prior to your visit and dress accordingly.
- Campus Tours (45 minutes) will be led by a current student. ADA-accessible tours can be easily accommodated.
- Information Sessions will be indoors and will be led by Admission Officers (45 minutes).
Virtual Information Sessions
We are also pleased to regularly offer virtual information sessions designed for any student interested in learning more about Whitman. 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!
Get an up-close look at our beautiful campus from the comfort of your own home. Our student-led virtual tours give you an inside look at our residence halls, dining hall, and academic, outdoor and recreational spaces so you can get a feel for what life is like here at Whitman College.
