- Whittier College was founded by members of the Religious Society of Friends in 1887 and was chartered by the State of California in 1901. The college’s founders named it in honor of Quaker poet and abolitionist John Greenleaf Whittier, who wrote of his pleasure at the honor but died in 1892 without ever having seen the college. Though it continues to honor its Quaker heritage, the college has been a secular institution since the 1940s.
- The campus houses 29 academic and administrative facilities, a performing arts center, a chapel, a library, athletic fields and facilities, and seven residence halls. Situated on 74 acres just 18 miles southeast of Los Angeles, Whittier offers small town charm along with many of the amenities of a metropolitan community.
