Reasons to attend and to not attend Pomona College

To Attend

  • “If you’re a person who is intellectually passionate, you’ll find people and professors here to fuel that passion.”
  • “Professors care about students. If you find an area where they don’t, you’ll have the tools and people to change that.”
  • “We have pretty good dining halls. Friends that have come to visit me are amazed at the selection we have.”
  • “The small class environment. Our introduction classes have a maximum of 30 people, so you do get that one-on-one interaction with your professors, and you get to know your classmates really well.”

To Not Attend

  • “Our sports teams aren’t necessarily the greatest. If you’re really going for a school that has a sports team that unifies the entire student body and has tailgates, Pomona is not the place to be. We’re a D3 college, and are student-athletes. The student part always comes before the athlete part, so people are more focused on their academics than they are the athletic side.”
  • “If you know exactly what you want to do and are just looking to get the resources for that specific career, it’s not the place for you. It’s going to make you question your major and why you picked what you did, and your advisor is going to ask you to take a ton of different classes. If you want to know how to get a certain job, they aren’t going to tell you.”
  • “Sometimes Pomona can be stingy with their money, which is a big issue this year. For a school trying to promote the idea of students graduating debt free with no student loans, I think the institution should do all that they can to make that happen.”[57% of students receive need-based scholarship aid.]
