Students take a stroll through the Campus Center.Painting the Rock. Homecoming. Sun bathing in the quad in December. Enjoying a midnight breakfast with your professors the night before finals. 

These experiences – and so many more – await you at Whittier College.

With the hustle and bustle of Los Angeles just to the west of us and the beaches and amusement parks of Orange County just to the south, Whittier manages to provide students with the ultimate Southern California lifestyle while maintaining a lively campus life of its own.

At Whittier, you’ll never run out of things to do - on campus, in local communities, even abroad. Choose your pursuits from 70 clubs and organizations, 22 NCAA Division III varsity athletics teams, student government, societies (our version of fraternities and sororities), the student newspaper and radio station, and activities and events that get you moving and making lasting memories.

Consider this your early welcome.
