Welcome to Whitman College - Walla Walla University Chapter of Sigma Xi


Welcome to the Whitman College - Walla Walla University Chapter of Sigma Xi. Our chapter was founded in 1962 in order to enhance communication between the two colleges and foster the goals of Sigma Xi. Our activities currently consist of:

Banquet in Celebration of Science
