Becca Baiman '15 reflects on the progress of the Coronado Garden Project, which partners with a high school in West Covina to maintain a school garden and implement a curriculum about local and industrial food systems and food justice.
Eli and Emma co-tutored Maria and Connie, two members of Pomona’s housekeeping staff, throughout the 2013-2014 academic year as volunteers for the Draper Center's ESL Tutoring Program. They share their thoughts on this experience.
"I hope that our contributions help Pomona continue its tradition of excellence, and make it possible for students to attend and graduate. Even if our individual gifts are not major gifts, collectively we can make a difference."
