Westminster Round

This English majors' student club organizes a variety of informal community events, such as jazz and poetry coffeehouses, film and museum outings, Christmas at Leonard's and Manito Park picnics.

The Whistle

Since 1974, the department newsletter has been sent annually to alumni and friends of the Whitworth English Department. It contains personal essays, words of wisdom and news from Westminster Hall. Although the contents vary from issue to issue, the main purpose of The Whistle is to keep alumni in touch with the faculty and with events in the English department.
