New Student Orientation
Welcome to Whitman College!
Our 5-day orientation program is designed to introduce you to the academic and social culture of Whitman College. You will meet with your Academic Adviser to discuss your fall course selections and register for classes. You will meet with the students in your residence hall section, attend guest lectures, participate in small groups discussions, and participate in numerous social events to make your transition to Whitman as welcoming and smooth as possible.
We are glad you decided to join the Whitman Community!
