From the Nest
Who better to tell you about academics, social life, research & internships, life in Southern California, or the experiences of FLI (first-generation and/or low-income) and BIPOC students at Pomona than actual Pomona students? During remote learning, we launched a series of student-to-student Zoom presentations, and we continue them now to give prospective students insights into our Sagehens' experiences. Our students will come to you "from the nest" on campus. Feel welcome to pop into any session or attend the full hour.
