Policy on Alcohol

For the safety and enjoyment of all members of our community, please adhere to campus policies during your visit. Pomona’s policy prohibits open containers of alcohol or cups containing alcohol in public spaces. In addition, common containers of alcohol (kegs, party bowls, etc.) are not allowed in residence halls or public spaces. (Speaking of residence halls, while we understand that many alumni would like to relive campus life by visiting residence halls, please respect students — many of whom are preparing for final exams — by avoiding campus residences during your visit.)

Restrooms

Facilities are available to attendees of Alumni Weekend in Smith Campus Center, Big Bridges Auditorium, Little Bridges (Bridges Hall of Music), Seaver House and Thatcher Music Building.

Sustainability at Pomona

Pomona College is committed to reducing the environmental impacts of all campus operations, including Alumni Weekend. While on campus, please keep your eyes open for opportunities to recycle, turn lights off and otherwise reduce resource use. (Keep an eye out for our new compost bins!) Pomona College Catering and Dining Services, which provides much of the delicious food available throughout the weekend, emphasizes the use of local, organic and otherwise sustainable food options and is committed to reducing landfill waste. Most kitchen scraps are composted at our very own on-campus Organic Farm. These are just a few small ways we’re trying to green Pomona. Thank you for pitching in while you’re here!

Wireless Access on Campus

Wireless access is available at many locations on campus during Alumni Weekend, including the Smith Campus Center, Marston Quad, the Cowart Information Technology Building, Frary Dining Hall and the Seaver House.
