Alumni Weekend '09
We are counting down the days to the much anticipated Alumni
Weekend to be held May 1-3 for classes ending in 4 and 9. Our hotel
representatives tell us that sales are brisk, so please don’t wait until the
last minute to make your reservations. The Doubletree Hotel in Claremont
has already sold out and guests are being directed to the Sheraton
Ontario Airport Hotel (909-937-8000) and the Doubletree Ontario
Airport Hotel (909-937-0900). There are a limited number of rooms in
our special rate blocks, so book now and be sure to mention Pomona
College Alumni Weekend.
Be a Resource for Current Students
In this cycle of economic ups and downs, students are extremely interested
to connect with alumni in the working world. They are not only looking
for potential job connections, but just as importantly, asking basic questions
like “What is a typical day really like for you? What do you wish you
had known when you decided to pursue this career path?” Help ease
their concerns and educate them by joining the Sagehen Career
Connection. By agreeing to let students contact you, you can make a
world of difference. It is easy to sign up, just visit the alumni homepage,
click on “Sagehen Career Connection” and follow the directions.
Where is the Alumni Association? (Everywhere.)
In the last year the alumni association planned over 100 events in cities
throughout the U.S. and beyond. If you live near a major U.S. city,
chances are we were in your area with winter break parties, professor discussions,
and more. We are constantly updating our calendar with new
events, check it out and bookmark it at
Where in the World Can You Find Cecil Sagehen?
