Welcome to Whitman College, a place where we are dedicated to creating an inclusive community of students, faculty, staff, alumni and family members. There can never be a place like home, and we will not pretend to replace that original community, but we will make every effort to create conditions where your student can thrive and flourish as a citizen, scholar and human being. The process of transformation from being a high school student to being an independent college student can be an opportunity for growth that may be accompanied by growing pains. We will do everything we can here at Whitman College to minimize the negative impact of this transition, but we cannot succeed alone. We will need your unwavering support for your student as we engage in this journey together.

Please use the resources on this website to help you as you guide your student into the next phase of their life as an adult and college student. Our team will be here to support them — and you.
