Letter from Alumni Board President to New Alumni

Dear Member of the Class of 2014,

On behalf of the Whitman College Alumni Association, it is my pleasure to congratulate you on your graduation and to welcome you to our membership! While you have spent your last several years closely linked to the Whitman College campus in Walla Walla, your Whitman community just got a lot bigger. As you are no longer a Whitman student, your participation in the Whitman community has entered a new phase and will extend far beyond the years you’ve spent in Walla Walla.

I hope you will take full advantage of the great cultural, academic and athletic programs and events that the Alumni Association sponsors and organizes. Our programs provide a great opportunity to connect with fellow Whitman alums, share our common past and maintain a connection to the college.

Our Association sponsors events across the country to provide alumni with opportunities to connect through:

  • Career Networking
  • Social Events
  • Educational Programs
  • Cultural and Artistic Events
  • Summer College
  • Reunions

Above all, I encourage you to take full advantage of the Association’s programs to meet new Whitman friends, keep in touch with classmates, and retain your connection to the college. If you have suggestions for alumni events in your area or ideas for improving communication, please let me know, contact the Alumni Office, or any member of the Alumni Board. We do want to hear your thoughts and suggestions. This is our Association and we aim to make it a great alumni organization!

I wish you all the best on your post-graduation endeavors and I hope to meet many of you at future alumni events.


Preston Frederickson ’02
President, Board of Directors
Whitman College Alumni Association

P.S. Please be sure to keep Whitman updated on your whereabouts so we can keep you informed of the many exciting events and programs organized for you.
