  • Dorms aren't separated by class, there's a 10% reserve for freshmen in each dorm. Everyone is extremely welcoming, you'll often find doors propped open for people to just come by…

  • The fact that there are only two substance-free halls is bothersome. Having such a high percentage of the dorms that allows substances can lead to peer pressure of drinking or…

  • Most students live in dorms for all four years. As a current senior, I prefer to live on-campus than off-campus. Not only will you be closer to the classrooms, but…

  • The dorms are okay. Generally you can expect to live all 4 years on campus. They are all centrally located and only a short walk to wherever you are headed.…

    Great all you can eat food at all 7 of the 5-C dining halls. The best college food in the country!

    My tour guide told me the food at the cafeteria is good and there are other places around campus you are able to take advantage of.

    AMAZING FOOD. You will never get bored of the food. Even if you do, you have four-five other dining halls to choose from at the other colleges.

    The food at Claremont McKenna is amazing. There is no such thing as fast food there. Everything is cooked like a meal that mom makes at home. There is always fresh salad and vegetarian options in addition to the wide selection of food already presented at each meal. Also, you can always get up and get more food unlike some colleges where what you have on your plate is all you get.

    Everyone says the food at the 5Cs are amazing, but it might get a bit boring after a while. Scripps' fresh baked cookies are always amazing and Frank is quite a walk but well worth it.

    There is no greek life at CMC. In my opinion this is great because we have parities every week that everyone can go to. We also have massive 5-C parties that are legendary. (FOAM at Mudd, Pirate Party at CMC, EuroTrash at Scripps, Harwood Halloween at Pomona)

    Unfortunately, there are no sororities or fraternities on the campus. The benefit of this is that all of the students mingle together and there is no division amongst the students. No one feels superior or inferior, which is great.
