We are providing updates after a week that has seen growth in reported coronavirus cases, the first reported case in Claremont and our announcement that a student, who had last been on campus March 13, had tested positive.
We are writing to let you know that a Pomona College student who left campus March 13, and has not returned since, notified the College yesterday that they tested positive for the coronavirus (COVID-19) on March 24.
As you may have heard, the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health yesterday placed Claremont for the first time on the list of communities with a known coronavirus (COVID-19) case (with no additional details provided).
We appreciate your flexibility in dealing with this unprecedented situation. The transition to off-campus, on-line education has not been easy and we are working through the challenges that such a transition presents
Dear Students, your faculty are thinking of you in this challenging time. We already miss your presence on campus, and we are excited to engage with you- albeit in virtual form- during the remainder of the semester.
"I’ve seen how summer research allows students to gain command of an area in their chosen discipline, and carry the confidence and excitement from that experience forward in their undergraduate careers and beyond."
