The program supports participants as they familiarize themselves with campus resources and facilitates networking with other men of color at Whittier College.
As a first-gen Latinx college student, I didn’t know what to expect once I got to Whittier College but I’m always grateful for the opportunity to have participated in the BLP. I was able to find a community of men of color on campus and I appreciate the brothers I gained from it!

The BLP helped me get a head start in my college career. I’m a first-generation student attending Whittier College and at times it can feel like I’m walking with a blindfold on because I don’t know what to expect of this journey. The program has helped lessen that experience since it provides me with resources and information about campus and the importance of achieving a higher level of education.
