Welcome to Whitman!
We are excited that your child is attending Whitman College, and hope that you will have many opportunities to spend time on the campus and in Walla Walla throughout their four years.
Just as we plan New Student Orientation events to help our students acclimate to life at Whitman, we have also planned an orientation program to help families make this transition. We want you to know that your child is in good hands for the next four years.
