Learn all about Pomona’s academic personality, preparation for careers and campus life at a virtual information or Q&A session, chat online with a student, or join a live virtual campus tour led by student tour guides who will virtually walk you through a video tour of our campus. We also have special opportunities to connect with admissions and Pomona students virtually this summer.
Admissions Special Events & Presentations
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 Hens@Home series of Zoom presentations, and we continue them now to give prospective students insights into our students' experiences—even though they are no longer at home, but happily living on campus. Feel welcome to pop into any session or attend the full hour.

Adjusting to college classes, dorm life, and a whole new social scene can be challenging!

The Claremont Consortium is unique: let our students explain!
