School Description

Pomona College emerged from humble beginnings; incorporated on October 14, 1887, instruction commenced a year later in a small, rented house in the city of Pomona. The following January, the College was given, an unfinished hotel in nearby Claremont, along with the adjacent land where it relocated and adopted the name, Pomona College. Pomona awarded its first diplomas to the Class of 1894.

In the 1920s, Pomona President, James A. Blaisdell, using Oxford and Cambridge as models, founded a consortium unlike any other in America. Hence over the next 75 years, two graduate schools and four undergraduate colleges joined Pomona as members of The Claremont Colleges, located on neighboring campuses, allowing cross-registration and sharing important facilities such as libraries. Today Pomona offers around 600 and nearly 2,000 courses at the other Claremont Colleges.

            I loved the small class sizes, personal connections with professors and intelligent and interesting fellow students!

          • Testimony
            1992-1996, BA

            I loved everything about Pomona College: from our outstanding faculty and students, to our picturesque campus in Claremont, small faculty-to-student ratio and stellar academics. I even loved the campus food. We had all the benefits of a small liberal arts college, combined with the diversity, facilities and offerings of the larger Claremont Colleges university system. I would recommend an education at Pomona College to every bright, worldly and curious individual who loves learning.
