1 POMONA COLLEGE [YOUR GUIDE TO CAMPUS VISITS AT POMONA COLLEGE]
2 AN OPEN INVITATION Whether you re starting your college search or nearing the end, I encourage you to visit Pomona College in person. Visitors often remark about our stunning campus and friendly community something you need to experience to believe. While we hope this guide will assist you in planning a campus visit that fits your needs, please don t hesitate to contact our office if you need assistance. Founded in 1887, Pomona is a nationally recognized liberal arts college of about 1,560 students with a student-faculty ratio of 8 to 1 and an average class size of 15. Pomona is the founding member of The Claremont Colleges, a unique arrangement in American higher education, with five autonomous undergraduate colleges and two graduate institutions located on adjacent campuses, cooperating to broaden the resources available to all of their students. Our Viewbook will give you information about the academic and extracurricular life at Pomona, but nothing can take the place of a visit. This brochure describes how to plan for yours and provides tips on ways you can learn about Pomona while you are here. When you are ready to get started, or if you have any questions, please contact us. Sincerely, Seth Allen Vice President & Dean of Admissions and Financial Aid

A campus visit is informative any time of year. A visit when the College is in session can be especially rewarding because it allows you to meet students and faculty, to visit classes, to stay overnight in a residence hall and to see the dynamics of campus life during the academic year. Interviews The interview gives you an opportunity to share your goals and interests with us and to ask specific questions about academic and social life. We recommend it as a way for us to get to know each other better. We suggest that you interview before you submit your application.
5 Interviews are conducted by members of the admissions staff and by senior interviewers students who are selected and trained to help us accommodate the many interview requests we receive. Please call two or three weeks before your visit to make arrangements for an appointment; appointments in December fill up quickly, so please plan accordingly. All freshman candidates who live in Southern California are expected to interview and should make arrangements to come to the campus. We strongly recommend that you interview as soon as possible in the fall. Freshman candidates who live outside of Southern California and are unable to interview on campus may meet with alumni of the College in their home towns.
