Whitman named ‘Best Value College’ in Princeton Review

Whitman was recently chosen as one of the “Best Value Colleges” in the 2013 Princeton Review. This title was given to schools that offer a quality education at a manageable cost, either by keeping tuition costs low or by providing enough scholarships and grants to help students meet higher tuition costs. Whitman was one of 150 colleges and universities on the list.

Farmers Market Remains Downtown

On Jan. 31, members of one faction of the Walla Walla farmers’ market board of directors met with the Downtown Walla Walla Foundation and voted to remain in the market’s usual location on 4th and Main St. The city has yet to approve the proposal and renew the lease, but members of the board are optimistic that there will be a famers’ market in the original location.

The second faction of the board of directors, which split from the original board earlier this month, continues to pursue a market location at the fairgrounds. If they are successful, there will be two farmers’ markets in Walla Walla when the season begins.
