Pomona named one of "America's Best Value Colleges."
The Princeton Review named Pomona College as one of "America's Best Value Colleges" for 2005 in a new publication out this month. It profiles 81 schools the education services company commends for "outstanding academics, generous financial aid packages and relatively low costs."
The book cites Pomona's small classes, extracurricular activities and proximity to Los Angeles. "If it weren’t for the work load, students may think they’d died and gone to heaven (especially since they can travel just one mile east or west to pick up an In-N-Out burger)," says the book.
Princeton Review also reports that "few if any of Pomona’s peers in exclusivity come close to matching the small-college atmosphere that makes learning here so much fun. With only 1,500 students, Pomona can keep classes small and discussion-based, yet through its affiliation with ... the Claremont College system, it can offer a university-style smorgasbord of academic options."
