Whittier College is a four-year, independent, liberal arts college distinguished by its small size, a nationally recognized liberal arts curriculum and innovative interdisciplinary programs. Founded by members of the Religious Society of Friends in 1887 and chartered by the State of California in 1901. The college's founders named it in honor of Quaker poet and abolitionist John Greenleaf Whittie...r, 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. With its mascot as the "Poets," Whittier College fields teams in 21 intercollegiate sports. Women's teams compete in basketball, cross country, lacrosse, soccer, softball, swimming and diving, tennis, track and field, volleyball, and water polo. The men's teams include baseball, basketball, cross country, football, golf, lacrosse, soccer, softball, swimming and diving, tennis, track and field, and water polo. Nineteen of Whittier's 21 varsity sports compete in the Southern California Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (SCIAC), while the two lacrosse programs are NCAA Division III independents.
