Few institutions can match Pomona's ability to combine intimate qualities with large-scale resources. As founding member of The Claremont Colleges, Pomona offers its students the personal experience of a small, superb liberal arts college and the breadth of resources associated with universities.
Pomona offers its approximately 1,500 students-evenly divided between men and women-a comprehensive curriculum in the arts, humanities, social sciences and natural sciences. With a student-faculty ratio of 8 to 1, students have the opportunity to work closely and collaboratively with professors who are also top scholars in their fields. Students and faculty challenge each other in laboratories, classrooms, and co-curricular activities, and everyone benefits from the energy generated by such an assemblage of sharp and eager minds. Friendships forged among Pomona faculty and students frequently endure far beyond the four years of college.
