I'm on the fence about this school. It's EXTREMELY laid back, and you could feel that as soon as you walked onto campus. Nobody was in a hurry and it was rare to see a frowning face.

Campus Visit Notes for Pomona College


Visit Description:

Well, what can I say! Pomona is an excellent institution and the campus displays this. That being said, it's a very laid back atmosphere -- almost too laid back. It felt like the students did not care about academics -- which I know is untrue, but you get that feeling on campus. Alas, Pomona is without a doubt an amazing place to spend 4 years. With the snow-capped mountains in the background and the vibrant sun everywhere, it's almost surreal.
