Campus Visit Notes for Claremont McKenna College


Visit Description:

We didn't know what to expect since we visited right before Winter Break. Our impression of the school was very favorable and we are planning to return in the Fall when school is in session. The school is very specific but is a very good fit for my student. It is small but since it is connected to the other colleges, it seems much larger. It is very unique so worth visiting. Overall we loved CMC and it moved toward the top of the list.

Hotel/Lodging Recommendations or Comments:

We stayed at the Doubletree about a mile from campus.

Other Comments (Transportation, local attractions, parking, etc.):

We flew into Ontario on a direct flight. Very easy to fly in and out of and close to campus.
