Daily Bulletin Explores Pivotal Moment in Pomona College History
Today some colleges, especially in California, are bursting at the seams. In Monday’s edition of The Daily Bulletin, a Joe Blackstock column describes a similar dilemma that occurred in Pomona College's history. "Pomona College President James A. Blaisdell wrestled with his own size problem, trying to decide if bigger is actually better.... There was a belief that Pomona College's intimate setting, small classes and frequent interactions between student and professor should not change…but there were other pressures"... and students clamoring at the door.
