  • After Whittier: Carolyn Mukai '13 | Whittier College
    member of the women s lacrosse team What first attracted you to Whittier The College s small size location and the women s lacrosse program were factors that initially attracted me to Whittier Why did you choose to study art I chose to study art because I had experience in drawing but less so in other mediums and wanted to develop my skills I also wanted to balance my science course load with a subject that let me explore my creative side Describe your experience at Whittier College What was your favorite class My experience at Whittier College was amazing I actually picked my naturopathic medicine program based on the fact that it has a similar learning environment to Whittier s environment There is an emphasis on small class sizes and consequently more individual attention and accountability This setting made it possible to get to know my professors and classmates on a level that transcended the classroom and contributed to my personal development One of my favorite classes at Whittier was an environmental ethics course taught by Professor Michelle Switzer This was the first class that I took that made me question certain beliefs on how I was supposed to live my life It was an eye opening and extremely humbling experience The class offered alternatives for how to live consciously specifically in regards to our environment that had never even occurred to me What was your first job after Whittier What are you currently up to How has your Whittier education benefited you professionally My first job after Whittier was with an acupuncturist in Santa Monica CA I ran the practice s front office for two years I m now in my first semester of naturopathic medical school in British Columbia Canada My Whittier education has served me well

  • Alumni Spotlight: Katy Collier '06 | Whittier College
    school when I applied to college I applied to a couple art schools some larger universities and a few smaller liberal arts colleges like Whittier When it came down to choosing I decided I wasn t ready to focus solely on art and that I really wanted a broad education and an intimate setting I kind of fell into deciding on Whittier based on the options I had given myself funding opportunities and my visit to the campus When I chose Whittier I had no idea it would meet my needs so well Why did you choose to study art I always knew I loved art but I did have to make the decision to major in it since I didn t always know if I would pursue art professionally My time at Whittier helped me to decide what other things I wanted to study along with art and I was able to broaden my interests by taking classes in science writing and philosophy etc Describe your experience at Whittier College What was your favorite class It s too hard for me to pick one class If I had to I might choose Performing the Gendered Body taught by dAvid pAddy and Sal Johnston I still own every book assigned in that class and refer to them regularly Another highlight was going to the Grand Canyon with an environmental science class about water in the Southwest some of my strongest friendships where formed in that class All my printmaking classes with Endi Poskovic were fundamental to my time at Whittier and much of my studio practice today still uses the ideas and skills that I encountered working in the Art Department What stands out most are the enduring connections that I was able to make with many of my professors
