    Read, get to know people. Anything you already do or you can think of.

    Most of the available activities are on-campus, there's not a whole lot to do in the Claremont Village. However, there is never any lack of things to do on campus, perhaps for that very reason. There are parties, dances, sporting events, and random get-togethers planned by clubs and groups of friends that can use school funding and school spaces. There's also the city of LA about 45 minutes away in low traffic. Freshmen aren't allowed to have cars (unless you have a permit), so most freshman get a Zipcar account to use the cars on campus or take public transportation... or just don't go to LA.

    The location allows you to experience the great city of Los Angeles and everything that comes with it. Students often go to the beach, concerts, plays, sports games, etc. The party scene is also interesting at the Claremont Colleges. Most parties are approved/funded by the schools and are even allowed to provide alcohol to those over 21.

    You will never be in want of things to do in the consortium. (Note: Most student groups and events are 5C [five-college].) A short list of options: off-campus trips, clubs, intramural sports teams, music lessons, parties, etc.

    ANYTHING YOU CAN POSSIBLY IMAGINE. Like Dancing? Hiking? Playing Video Games? Playing Frisbee? Speaking in another language? Doing community service? Drinking? Partying? Talking about politics? Swimming? Playing the ukulele or guitar? Singing? Playing any other game? You can actually do whatever you want and if the group doesn't exist already, make it yourself and you will find people (if not at Pomona, at the 5Cs) who will do it with you!

    you can drive into la, go to the museum of contemporary art, see a dance or opera performance in orange county, or drive up to mt. baldy to ski. you're only 35 miles east of la, so you're in just as much a cosmopolitan and beach-like environment as you are in a bourgeoisie, upper-middle class suburbia.
