The Greeks in Walla Walla

The Greeks in Walla Walla

Quin Nelson March 21, 2013
The bustling Whitman College campus is bookended by two essential social hubs: Prentiss Hall, home of Whitman's four sororities, to the south, and Whitman’s four fraternity houses to the north. These Greek chapters have peripheral locations but are of central importance to life at Whitman, with occasional recklessness that divide campus over controversial issues as well as tremendous fellowship that brings Whitties together. To properly understand how the Greek system has taken such a strong foothold in Whitman's social life, it’s imperative to start from the beginning.

Senior Leads Annual Drive for Letters of Gratitude

Emily Lin-Jones November 15, 2012
Senior Lea Baker wrote a letter to her boyfriend going through U.S. Army basic training every day of her freshman year. When he couldn’t receive mail, she wrote to other soldiers deployed overseas—and enlisted fellow Whitman students to help. “The first year I did Letters of Gratitude it was kind of like a selfish act; it was like, I can’t write letters to him so I’m going to write letters to troops overseas,” said Baker, who started the project her sophomore year. As part of the Letters of Gratitude campaign, Thetas have been tabling in Reid and encouraging passersby to contribute a message to U.S. troops overseas. Thetas pictured are Cailtyn Yoshina (center), Emily Grossman (with blue scarf), and Andrea Horwege (far right). Photos by Allie Felt. With help from members of Kappa Alpha Theta, Baker is tabling in Reid every day through Nov. 16, inviting Whitties to pen a letter or two to a soldier stationed abroad.

Self-esteem boosted through Greek life involvement

September 29, 2011
To be at Whitman College is to find yourself interacting on a daily basis with some of the smartest, kindest, most outgoing, and most driven women you've ever met before—and to be in a sorority means getting the chance to form close relationships with many of those women that you would not necessarily have otherwise met.
