    PLEASE do your research and make sure a small liberal arts school is for you because they're not for everyone! Do an overnight stay and make sure its the place for you, especially students of color like myself, seeing that most lib arts colleges are not very diverse off paper though Pomona is one of the more diverse out there. Pomona offers a fly in program that fly's minority and low income prospective high school seniors to visit the school for about 5 days all expense paid. Call admissions office for more information. That being said this is still a school where students of color can find friends and comfort in peers different and alike and still succeed and be happy. Just know that EVERY school, whether big or small, will have good and bad apples, even if the bad apples are not overtly 'bad apples'. Everyone here is pretty freakin smart so dont expect to come here and feel like it'll be so easy. BEST THING ABOUT POMONA SO FAR: Even though it seems like everyone here was pretty much top of their freaking class in high school, Pomona is soooooo collaborative. Students help each other so much and its not competitive at all (at least thats what I've seen so far).

    Visit. My decision was made for me on my visit, because of the impression the people made on me. More than any statistic or ranking, the people are what make the place. If you're looking for a school where the professors are all interested in the success of their students and the students are all looking to be the best they can and support their friends, you will find that atmosphere when you visit. If you can't afford it, apply to their MSAP (Minority Student Action Program) for a paid trip.
