Our Whitman, My Story. Whitman College students tell their stories—about their unique experiences in choosing Whitman, being part of the Whitman community and what they love most.

Johanna Stoberock, senior adjunct assistant professor of English & general studies, will be publishing her novel, Pigs, in October of 2019. Enjoy her posts about the process and other things: "misadventures in publishing," "fact or fiction?," "writing prompts," and "recommendations." 

Off-Campus Studies. We believe that an understanding of a culture or region other than one's own is an essential part of a liberal arts education and a key to developing future leaders in an increasingly interdependent global society. Read the many blogs of Whitman students as they travel, learn and explore different countries.

Semester in the West. Whitman College's Semester in the West is an interdisciplinary field program focusing on public lands conservation and rural life in the interior American West. Follow along their journey of over 8,000 miles.

The Career and Community Engagement Center. We connect Whitman students and alumni to the communities and experiences that help them cultivate their futures. Since 2010, we've helped members of the Whitman family volunteer, find internships, secure jobs, change careers, and chase the myriad dreams available to liberal arts students and graduates. See what we're up to today.

Transparency Between Ecology and Evolution. There are multiple lines of evidence suggesting that transparency is often insufficient in ecology and evolution. Join biology Associate Professor Tim Parker on his quest for more transparency. 

Whitman Library Explore what's going on from day-to-day at the Whitman Library.  It's not just books.
