Let’s face it: Pomona students have the best handle on what academics, social life and opportunities are like at Pomona. They’ve studied abroad, conducted research with faculty, gained funding for internships, registered for classes, competed in conference finals, served as peer tutors, sampled seven dining halls and made lifelong friends. Wouldn’t you want to ask them questions?
Our student interns work alongside us during the academic year, and our summer fellows keep us company during the summer months. They help us connect with prospective students and families on campus and through virtual programs. Feel welcome to email them questions or to request a Zoom chat by clicking on their names.

Favorite Pomona memory (so far): There are so many memories I’ve captured through the thousands of photos on my camera roll. One was taken at 5:27 a.m. on a Friday: I had stayed up all night with my friend to play a board game called Wingspan for hours. Afterwards, we went to Thatcher Music Building to play piano and sing our hearts out since no one was in the building that early in the morning. Then, we walked over to Pomona’s permanent art installation “Dividing the Light,” or “Skyspace,” waiting for the light show that happens only during sunrise and sunset, only to find that we were over an hour late for the sunrise show. We took a quick nap back in our rooms, then recreated the scene in Euphoria when Cassie gets ready for school to impress Nate Jacobs.
