Just as Whitties begin to settle into their classes and activities for the semester, we Admission Officers get ready to hit the road!
Joshua Smith, our International Admission Coordinator, was the first to set off on fall travel; a good thing, too, because he has the longest way to go! Joshua will visit schools in Hong Kong at the end of this week and will be in Singapore by early next week. Meanwhile, two of our regional officers, Bruce Jones and John Loranger, will conduct interviews and visit schools in New England and Seattle, respectively. Esther Weathers will be the next to go when she heads down to California next week.
As two of the new additions to the office, Katherine Buckley and I will travel with Tony Cabasco to Seattle, where we’ll join John in speaking with students about Whitman. We’re extremely excited to get on the road and to talk to students in person. We’ll have the chance to meet students who already have their eyes set on Whitman, as well as to “describe the Whitman experience and the town of Walla Walla to people who may not have traveled here,” as Katherine noted.
To all the prospective students out there: look out for all of us across the country (and across the globe!) as we visit cities and towns near you this fall!
–Sadie Nott, Admission Officer
