"Expand your interests and skills," advises President Cronin in a letter to first-year Whitman students. "This is a great time to discover new fields and try new ventures."

Rugby, rock climbing, and ultimate frisbee may well be among the new ventures students explore at Whitman. And few students are merely sports spectators here. They join faculty and staff in sharing "the health and growth that result from competition and fitness," as dean of the faculty Pat Keef notes. Meanwhile Whitman students prepare for a complex life in a complex world by learning to organize, lead, and collaborate through a wealth of athletic and fitness activities.
