Campus Visit Notes for Pomona College


Visit Description:

This was an amazing visit. Everyone was really quite nice and really seemed truly happy. Almost all my questions about the campus were answered. I ended up having lunch with a Pomona student who is interested in doing a Math and PPE (Philosophy, Politics, and Economics) double major which is exactly the same thing that I was thinking about doing. He was really helpful and was in a similar situation in high school. He was very helpful and told us about all the things about Pomona including some of the stuff they don't normally talk about like drugs and alcohol on campus. Then after going on the tour, I was truly convinced of how awesome Pomona is. Pomona is definitely a place I want to be.
