Female Computer Science and Economics Double Major C/O 2022
How did you meet your closest friends?
I did a thing called Sponsor Groups where we live with two sophomore mentors for the first year. They are meant to be our friends, give us advice, and can’t get us in trouble. We’re put together for a certain reason, whatever that may be. I ended up bonding with a lot of them, and they are actually my friends. A couple of other people I’ve met have also lived in my building.
How would you describe the overall social scene at Pomona?
For lack of a more concrete word, I think it’s very intimate. You know a lot of people really well and can walk around and recognize someone, or if you’re lost at the dining hall there’s probably someone you can go sit with. Again, if it feels too small, you can go to the other campuses.
How would you describe the student body?
It’s a very environmentally conscious, friendly, intelligent group of people. Something to consider is that while people are very friendly and open-minded, it’s a very liberal heavy campus. That’s not to say there aren’t other opinions on campus, it’s just that one is showed over the others. People really like to play sports and hang out outside. There’s a big outdoors community that goes hiking, skiing, and goes to the beach. You can get to all those things very quickly. On The Loose is one of the biggest outdoors club here.
