College Council

Dear Whitmanites,
We are Jessica Wei and Winni Yang, your Whitman College Council co-chairs for the 2024-2025 academic year. We hope you have enjoyed your summer and we cannot wait to welcome you to the BEST residential college at Princeton University!

From our Hogwarts-like dining hall to the majestic courtyards, Whitman’s one-of-a-kind architecture will take your breath away and soon feel like a second home. After a 
long day of studying, there’s no better place than Whitman to decompress with gorgeous sun and a sweet treat from our weekly Whitman Wrap. Beyond our beautiful walls, what truly makes us so special is the staff that will embrace you with open arms. The people at Whitman will always be there to cry with you during difficult journeys and smile with you through your proudest achievements. Our Whitman community spreads joy, encourages kindness, and embraces friendship for everyone including those outside of our Whale family.

On behalf of the Whitman College Council board, we are so grateful to be able to play a part in this exciting chapter ahead of you. The Whitman College Council is a group of student leaders that strive to build Whitman’s community by serving as the connection between Whitmanites and college staff members. What we do:
●  Study breaks: an opportunity for you to take a break are available on a biweekly basis. These fun activities with free food and drinks (on us!) will introduce you to new friends and allow you to bond with old ones.
●  College events: these larger events give you the opportunity to participate in fun, 
community-wide events while eating good food and sharing laughs with other Whitmanites. Events include Whitman Olympics, Spring Fling, or a trip to see NYC Broadway shows!
●  Student support and advocacy: we understand the transition to college can be daunting, but we are always here to support you in times when you may feel alone. We strive to create a safe environment and collaborate alongside the Whitman staff to resolve any issues within our community, especially those pertaining to mental health struggles.

We hope you are excited for these next big steps and want to stress that we are here for you! Please do not hesitate to reach out with any questions, comments, concerns, or even just want to introduce yourself! Feel free to email us at [email protected] and [email protected]. We look forward to meeting you and hope to make this the
best year yet!
From the Whitman College Council board, we welcome you with a big whale hug

With lots of love,
Jessica Wei ‘27 and Winni Yang ‘27
