Clubs & Organizations


The 3-2 Engineering Program offers students the opportunity to participate in a variety of clubs and organizations that promote academic and professional growth, and, more importantly, connect students to peers who want to have fun and build upon their passions.

Recognized student clubs and organizations affiliated with the 3-2 Program are listed below:

Chemistry Club

Whittier's Chemistry Club is open to all students who have an interest in chemistry. The club strives to educate, network, and familiarize chemistry students with their peers and instructors through fun and educational chemistry-oriented activities. Members of the Chemistry Club can also become student affiliates of the American Chemical Society, which connects them to resources concerning jobs and internships.

Math Club

The Math Club, a chapter of the Mathematical Association of America, was established to provide a network of acquaintances for those involved in or interested in mathematics, to advance the interests of the members in the areas of mathematics, and to provide assistance to the Whittier College community in said areas.

The Math Club sponsors most of the activities for students, mathematical or otherwise. These include guest lectures, The Problem Solving Group (Putnam, COMAP), and Pi Day.

Physics Club

Established in 1993 and today one of the most popular clubs on campus, the Physics Club at Whittier College promotes both an interest in physics and lifelong friendships among the club members—not all of whom are majors in the field. Over the past few years, the club has sponsored the highly anticipated astronomy "star party," which involves overnight camping in the desert or in the mountains, faculty vs. student volleyball games, movie nights, lectures by astronomers and physics professionals, bowling nights, and several other social and academic events.

The only requirements to join Physics Club are an interest in physics and a willingness to have fun! For more information about meeting times and upcoming events, contact the Department of Physics at 562.907.4513.
