Health & Exercise

Student take part in a frisbee game outside of Wardman Library.It’s all about balance. Here at Whittier, our vision is to create and sustain a learning environment where healthy behaviors are an essential component to your academic and individual success.

From our Graham Athletics Center to the eating options served up at the Campus Inn, Whittier offers plenty of ways to stay active and fit. Our ideal Southern California weather allows for year-round sports and activities. Head out for a jog through the ficus-lined trees of Uptown Whittier. Grab some friends for an Ultimate Frisbee tournament on the upper quad. Sign up for a physical activity class like Zumba or kickboxing. Join a varsity athletics team or excel at Innertube Waterpolo or another intramural sport.

And don’t just thrive physically. Good health means having a full measure of emotional and social vitality, too. The College’s Health & Wellness Center, and its highly qualified medical staff, provide a comprehensive range of services, including nutrition education, injury and illness treatment, wellness exams, vaccinations, and referrals. Our Counseling Center offers a number of psychiatry services, as well as workshops and seminars each semester geared toward stress management, relaxation techniques, and other mental health topics.

College life is fast-paced, sometimes frantic, leaving students with little time to worry about their health. However, we care about you and have programs and services in place to help you maintain a healthier you.
