Update Your E-mail
Did you know that our most popular alumni events sell out before most
people even hear about them? That’s because alumni with e-mail hear
about events before the “snail mail” makes it to your home or office. Now,
updating your e-mail address with the College is as easy at 1–2–3: 1)
Go to www.pomona.edu/emailupdate. 2) Enter your name, class year and
e-mail address. 3) Click Submit. That’s it.
