Pomona College provides for an excellent education. Each semester there are hundreds of classes that are offered in pretty much every subject matter imaginable. The fact that Pomona is part of the five college Claremont Consortium only means that there are hundreds of more options available. You can take classes at any of the other colleges! The professors at Pomona are another huge reason why the education at Pomona is superb. All of the professors I have had have been eager to help, very approachable outside of class, extremely knowledgeable of the material, and make going to that early morning...

    Pomona College is a great school, and I feel extremely fortunate to attend this college; I have already met so many interesting and engaged people. The professors and administration are thoughtful and truly seem to care about their students. The campus is beautiful, the weather is great, the food is awesome, there is always so much to do, and the financial aid was outstanding as well.

    Pomona College is a great school with an emphasis on liberal arts education. One thing I really like about this place is the strong bond that exists between professors and students. There is also good collaboration among peers.

    Positive, encouraging atmosphere from fellow students and teachers. Sunshine and flip-flops in an LA suburb with a small downtown. Rigorous, fast-paced, thought-provoking education.

    Absolutely gorgeous campus in suburbia, very green and vibrant. School for extremely rigorous knowledge seekers, especially those on the competitive side. Great academic opportunities for those who can handle the pressure and professors are well known for their ability to educate well.

    Pomona is an institution that takes pride in a very personal environment for the students and faculty. The classes are engaging and challenge you to work above and beyond the norm. The Claremont Consortium is a great resource because students can take classes at any of the 4 other neighboring undergraduate schools.

    The academics are certainly rigorous, but will make you grow in ways you won't realize until you step off campus and out of the Claremont bubble. You will meet the most brilliant, talented, ambitious, fun-loving, charismatic people of your life here. It is a great institution in most respects!
