General Lists

  • Official Student Distribution Lists: These five basic lists were created at the request of Whitman senior administration. There is one list for every class (stu14@whitman.edu, etc.) as well as stuxx@whitman.edu, which goes to part-time students and other students who don't fit into the other basic lists. 
    • Subscription: Students are automatically subscribed to the appropriate class list. No unsubscribe feature is available.

    • Posting: Restricted to those messages that must be delivered to all students of a particular class or classes. Postings can be made by the Office of the President, by senior administrative officers and deans, faculty division chairs, and some individuals and directors of offices with explicit permission. Permission can be obtained from senior administrative officers (e.g. Dean of Faculty (for faculty), Dean of Students (for student services officers or students), etc.).
