The Palmer Society

The Palmer Society was the first female society founded at Whittier College in 1921. The purpose of the Palmer Society is to attain the highest ideals of American womanhood by promoting a spirit of friendship and cooperation, developing aesthetic appreciation in ourselves and others, giving service to the community, remaining loyal to one another and to ourselves, and striving to maintain high academic standards. The Palmer Society takes great pride in the friendship, loyalty, scholarship, and service that they give to themselves and the Whittier community.
