Pitzer Core Values as Famous Shakespeare Quotes

Pitzer College is well-known for its discussion-based classes and wide variety of exciting course offerings. Some of our favorites from the past academic year include: Community Poetry: Black Feminist rEVOLution, Ecopoetics & Photography, and ENGL 093 PZ -World Literature in an Oceanic Context.

These classes exemplify Pitzer’s interdisciplinary learning focus while highlighting interesting and relevant topics. We here in the Pitzer Admission Office have decided to try our hand at literary analysis to provide our readers with a better understanding of our core values through famous Shakespeare quotes. Thanks for reading, and as always feel free to take our core value quiz!
