Woolman & Whittier Halls

Woolman and Whittier Halls (WW) are women's traditional style buildings, adjacent to one another. They typically house freshmen women, but the community is so endearing that many want to return year after year! Residents are housed in double rooms. Rooms are carpeted and equipped with loftable furniture and wireless internet. There are community bathrooms located within each corridor. Common lounges are found on every floor. These buildings have no air conditioning. There is a laundry room on the first floor of Whittier Hall that is free to all residents of WWF.

Programs in Woolman and Whittier

Woolman and Whittier Halls have vibrant communities that are strengthened by the large number of building and floor events that happen on a monthly basis. Along with the floor events that resident assistants host regularly, Woolman and Whittier also have hall-wide events that build community with residents from one hall to the other.

Meet the Staff


EmeliaEmelia is the resident director of Woolman and Whittier Halls. She received her B.A. in fine arts with a minor in art history and her emphasis was in ceramics. Emelia completed ministry school in California over the course of three years, where she lived in community and focused on servant leadership. And now, as a resident director, she loves spending time creating a space for students to make meaningful connections, to experience laughter, and make memories. She believes living in community is a vital key to developing a sense of self and understanding God in new ways. In her leisure time, Emelia enjoys painting, making pottery, and traveling.  She loves being outside, exploring new places with great friends or trying a new healthy recipe.  If there is good food and great people around, Emelia is not far away.
