WHITEWATER, WIS – The Whitewater Area Chamber of Commerce along with the City of
Whitewater, the Whitewater Marketing Alliance, the Tourism Council, Downtown Whitewater,
and the Greater Whitewater Committee want to support the university in its efforts to ensure that
the university students feel safe and welcome upon their return to campus and to Whitewater!
We would like YOUR help in creating a warm and welcoming environment as the university
students return for their fall semester. We have Welcome Warhawks yard signs that we are
inviting local residents to put in their front yards, and local businesses to hang in their storefront
windows or put out in front of their businesses. While starting or returning to college in a new
town away from the comforts of home can be scary, this year is particularly challenging. Let’s
showcase the warm and friendly nature of Whitewater and welcome the students with open arms
in the best social distanced way we can!
We want to paint the town purple during the move-in period, August 21st through September
2nd, to show the students they are an important part of the Whitewater family. The signs are
available now and can be picked up at the chamber offices, 150 W. Main Street, Monday – Friday, 1 p.m. – 5 p.m.
