    I love that you can go to any of the halls in the area. Pomona's are good, but there's always other options if you need the flexibility.

    Really good food, with great selection. You can eat at any of the Claremont Colleges, which is awesome!

    Options from other campuses. Can go to other Claremont Colleges on the same meal plan. Snack is pretty good and actually popular. Lots of opportunities for free food all the time.

    As a vegan, my experience of the dining halls has been quite different from everyone else's. However, my non-vegan friends seem to have very good opinions of our dining halls, and the selection does look good. However, if you are vegan or have other such limiting dietary restrictions (gluten-free, vegetarian), I would suggest that you get as small a meal plan as possible, or as I'm doing for next year, petition for no meal plan at all. The choices available are not healthy, varied, or available enough to sustain a reasonable diet, especially not given its price tag.

    Decent. I've eaten there a few times and nothing is absolutely incredible but what I've had has been pretty good. I've never heard any complaints.

    The food at the Claremont College Consortium is amazing. There are 7 dining halls to choose from, and the eatery is quality. If you don't like the menu at your school on a particular day, just take a 5 minute walk to another campus's dining hall.

    The food was better than I expected it to be. They served some pretty good Indian curry when I was there.

    The dining halls do their best to offer a homey ambience and a fresh, healthy, varied selection. You can also dine at any of the other colleges in the consortium, which offers significant flexibility and the opportunity to develop new dining traditions with your friends.

    Frank and Frary are good, but even if you get sick of them, you can go eat at any of the other schools or in the village. Lots of places take Claremont cash and all seven of the dining halls are linked so the meals transfer to the other schools.

Student Responses to Review Topic: Greek Life

  • Jun-02-2014 I am a current student here

    There is no real Greek life on campus. There is strictly no Greek living, and there is only one real Greek club, which doesn't have much of a presence on campus. If you're looking for Greek life, definitely do not come here. However, there is still a large amount of social life on campus available to all, through organizations that regularly put on parties and dances open to the 5Cs or just Pomona.

    There are 3 fraternities on campus. One is a frarority. They aren't nationally recognized organizations, but they are great groups for some.

    Greek life is not nearly as prevalent here as it is at many larger institutions. There are no sororities and only three fraternities (which host weekly or semesterly parties and other social events) at the Claremont Colleges.

    Not really any. We have 2 Frats (one of which is a sorority at other schools) that throw parties and one frarority (frat/sorority).
