LA Excursions

Through its LA Excursions program, LEAP partners with offices across campus to provide opportunities for Whittier College students to experience the best amusement parks, sporting events, museums, and cultural landmarks Southern California has to offer. Excursions are provided at minimal to no cost to students, but require a refundable deposit to hold a reservation, 


From pool tournaments to Super Mario Brother game nights to SportsFest - LEAP's annual competitions are full of fun and rivalry. Bring your skills, as serious bragging rights are always up for grabs. 

Community Service

Be part of something bigger than yourself! Each semester, LEAP provides opportunities for students to take part in blood and bone marrow drives, donate goods to a local food drive, walk for a cause, or make a difference in the community at service initiatives like Helping Hands Day. 

ASWC Program Board Events

Program Board hosts annual events that keep traditions alive and strong at Whittier. Welcome Week activities. Dub Sync Lip Sync competitions. The crowning of Mr. & Ms. Whittier. Thanks to ASWC, there is always something to do at the Poet campus.
