Pomona College Family Weekend - 2015
Dear Parents, Guardians and Family Members,
I am delighted to extend an invitation to you and your family to join us for Pomona College Family Weekend, February 13-15, 2015. Registration will begin in December 2014, and will be announced on this webpage.
Our tradition of inviting families to campus is a great opportunity for students to share their Pomona College experience with loved ones. You will be able to meet and interact with professors, staff and other members of the Pomona College community—ask questions, sit in on a class, hear a faculty lecture and discover the College and Claremont yourself.
The Family Weekend 2015 planning committee is currently crafting a rich and exciting schedule of events that feature the best that Pomona College has to offer. Our esteemed faculty, distinguished staff, and of course, our amazing students will be part of the program. Events begin early on Friday, February 13, so please consider arriving the day before. Some of the weekend's highlights are:
