Whitmore College is the college which Jenna attended and it is also the same college that Caroline and Bonnie are currently attending. Whitmore is the college where Sheila Bennett taught Occult Studies. The institution was seen for the first time in The Five. It is one of the main settings in Season Five, Season Six, and partially Season Seven.
In Catch Me If You Can, it is implied, if not explicitly stated, that the college is not in Mystic Falls or even the same county, as Sheriff Forbes could not legally arrest Shane on campus, because they were outside her jurisdiction. Legally, Sheriff Forbes must call in the local law enforcement to make the arrest, but instead she tells Shane that they better hurry and get him to Mystic Falls because it was a supernatural incident.
