What Students Are Saying

4.47 Average Rating
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.
Yasmin from Bellevue, WA
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.
Happy Freshman
