Whitman Magazine is published four times a year, in February, May, August and November; the November issue is the Annual Report of Gifts.

Whitman Magazine is designed to inform Whitman’s constituents about the life of the college and our alumni, and to help them maintain a lifetime connection to the college. Constituent groups who receive the magazine include alumni, donors, trustees, overseers, parents, faculty, staff and friends. Each issue is placed online; some of these issues include bonus content.

Here's how it works

The Communications staff develops story ideas for Whitman Magazine months in advance of each publication. For the campus news section, we keep a careful eye on campus events and activities, tracking potential stories. As the story list for each publication develops, we seek input from faculty and staff to help determine which stories will appear in the magazine. We encourage staff, faculty, students and alumni to offer suggestions about potential stories and photo opportunities to supplement our own research and analysis. For the feature section in each edition, we look to cover trends and major campus developments and to reflect Whitman to our readers. Over time, we will represent the depth and diversity of the liberal arts education at Whitman and the experience of being a part of the Whitman family.

It’s important to know that...

There are seemingly endless stories to be told about Whitman, its students, programs, faculty/staff, facilities, alumni and more. The magazine can showcase only a limited number of stories in each hard-copy edition. However, the online version of Whitman Magazine can showcase additional content as appropriate.
