What the students are saying about:

Pomona College

Pomona College

“In high school, I spent 5 hours a day talking to people online. During my entire first year at Pomona, I only IM’ed one person once,” a freshman from Arizona says. “Why? Because everyone I want to talk to is right here, living with me, and they are some of the most fascinating people on earth. We are constantly interacting with one another, in the flesh, and I can honestly say I learn as much from listening to my intellectually engaged peers as I do from my professors.” This isn’t to say students don’t appreciate their professors as well. “Almost all the professors I've had know me by name and they are very accessible.” Another sophomore adds, “I get more individual attention from Pomona professors than I did in my high school. If you’re looking for an incredible education in beautiful California, surrounded by some of the smartest and in-love-with-learning students imaginable, this is the place to be.”
