WELCOME!

        Pursuing a liberal arts education at Whitman is a wonderful opportunity. It's a chance to explore new territory, meet new people, learn about different cultures, and grow holistically as an individual. But moving to a new country comes with its fair share of challenges; Culture shock, complicated employment and tax regulations, financial struggles, and occasionally feeling homesick. All this combined with a rigorous academic curriculum, can affect one's mental health and consequently their overall wellness. Whitman Our Home is a platform that was created by students for students. It is a collection of stories from international students who are currently enrolled as well as alumni. It's a platform that allows international students to share about their experiences at Whitman, and their take on issues regarding wellness and caring  for one's mental health.
