Choosing to come to Whittier College was a leap of faith for Gregory Carlson ’15.
“I didn’t even see what the campus looked like in person before I applied or when I decided on Whittier,” said Carlson. “Coming from Weston, Massachusetts, I knew I wanted to be close to my Godfather, who lived in San Diego at the time.”
More than 70 Whittier College students and 10 Pioneer High School students presented their service learning projects at the College & Community Expo on April 18 at the student center lounge on the Whittier campus.
Whittier native Jaimis Ulrich ’15 took a nontraditional path to finish her college education. A transfer student from Mt. San Antonio College and Rio Hondo College, her educational journey has so far spanned 10 years.
Jessica Webster ’15 has been riding horses since she was four years old and started competing at age eight. The competitiveness instilled in her at an early age has served her well during her time at Whittier where she has been serious about business and even helped her secure a job with a NASA laboratory.
