Get ready to soar!

Starting college is exciting, but it can also feel daunting. Whitman College has developed a pre-orientation program called the Summer Fly-In. It’s designed to help students who are either the first in their family to attend college and/or from a working-class background to get to know each other and everything Whitman has to offer.

The Summer Fly-In program is for incoming students who will be enrolled at Whitman in the fall semester. If you are a high school student interested in visiting Whitman, please check out the Visit Scholar Program.

Students participating in the Summer Fly-In will connect with other new and current students, as well as key staff and faculty who will share major campus resources.
