Hispanic Magazine Names Pomona One of 10 Best Colleges for Latinos

Pomona College is named one of the nation's 10 best colleges for Latinos in the March issue of Hispanic Magazine, a 280,000-circulation monthly based in Miami.

The magazine took into account measures of academic excellence such as student-to-faculty ratio and graduation rates, and also considered Hispanic enrollment, cultural programs and support for Hispanic students and the percentage of Hispanic faculty.

For Pomona, the magazine reports that " this little school of just over 1,500 has as strong a Hispanic presence as it does an academic reputation." In a voluntary self-report, 11 percent of Pomona's current students identified themselves as Latino American. Other colleges and universities listed in the magazine's top 10 included Harvard, Stanford, Dartmouth and MIT.
