Welcome, Poet Alumni!

Whittier College alumni are an essential part of the extended Poet Family - an august alumni body, one that has more than a century's history of fierce loyalty and one that maintains a vested interest in the future of this College. The Alumni Association strives to engage this alumni network and encourage them to EXPLORE, CONNECT, and CONTRIBUTE to the College community through a variety of programs and activities.
