What Students Are Saying

4.00 Average Rating
It's a small school that doesn't feel small because of the 5 other colleges surrounding it. They're all extremely close to each other. It takes about 15 minutes to walk from Pomona to Pitzer (and they're at opposite corners.)
Jose from San Diego, CA
Pitzer allows for a great opportunity to be a part of the consortium of 5 colleges.
Pitzer focuses on interdisciplinary courses.
Pitzer has a great ratio of students to teachers.
