The idea of home means different things to everyone. For many students, Whitman may become a second home, and for many, it’s impossible to forget where they came from. In a recent exhibition in the Stevens Gallery, Shelby Cutter ‘19 and Izzy Dunn ‘19 displayed photographs they had taken of places that a...

I've seen this plant every day this year while walking to the Science Building, but it wasn't until the fall break that I had a chance to really stop, look and take it in.

Walla Walla is not meant to have green grass and luscious rivers flowing through it, but our campus serves as an oasis full of greenery and sparkling brooks. I meandered by the Admissions building...

Shortly into my first few weeks here at Whitman, I learned a vital lesson: Watch out when near the ivy. You never know what will be there. Sometimes you will cross the bridge leading from Prentiss to Penrose and spot a girl playing a Native American flute, sometimes the ivy is swarming with ducks. My...
