Be a part of graduation!
We all remember what it was like as our last semester at Whitman drew to a close. Whether you were anxious about entering the “real world” or excited about starting the next chapter, stressed about finding a job or looking forward to moving to a new city, we were all too aware that before us lay one of the largest transitions of our lives. In the crazy rush of capstones, finals, travel arrangements and saying goodbye to friends and mentors, it’s easy for seniors to forget that they are part of a wider Whitman community that will always be a resource for them.
From now until May 6, the Alumni Office will be collecting postcards from alumni across the world with words of encouragement for a graduating senior. When the Class of 2016 enters their last round of finals, we will send each senior a postcard from alumni. It’s a simple but powerful way to connect with the next generation of alumni and make a difference for a stressed out senior.
