Announcements! Announcements!

This week we’re excited to announce the return of our “Where in the World is Cecil the Sagehen” competition! You’ve been reading about some of the travel that we’ve been doing around the country, and some of you may have already seen a Pitzer representative in your hometown. When we travel, we take Cecil with us, and Cecil loves taking pictures! If you can identify where Cecil is in one of each weeks’ pictures, then we’ll send you a prize in the mail! Honest! You can email me your answers by emailing me┬ádirectly at [email protected]. Good luck with these pictures here, and keep an eye out for Cecil!

Galloway School with studentsKermit the Frog and Cecil Smithsonian Washington DCSun Studios Memphis TNWe are also very excited to announce that the application for our Fall Diversity Program is now available online! This program is designed specifically for students from underrepresented racial and cultural backgrounds from across the continental United States. Students selected for this program will have the opportunity to experience life at Pitzer College by staying in a residence hall, eating in the dining hall, and interacting with current students. If you are selected for the program, you will have your travel and expenses funded. There’s a lot more information about the program on the Admission website, so check it out!

Coming up this week we’ll be meeting students in Texas, Philadelphia, Greater Boston, Los Angeles, and elsewhere. Find out if a Pitzer representative is coming to your school sometime this Fall (your guidance/college counselor will know). If we can’t meet you in person this season, then you can still schedule a phone interview with someone in the office. Now is the time to start thinking about these things because our schedule does fill up! We will also be holding alumni interviews in some major cities across the country during the month of January, so keep your eyes open for those opportunities by checking back here every week.

Enjoy the new season, keep up the hard work, and have fun!
