Connect with a Student

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.
