Admitted Student Day

REGISTRATION CLOSED: We have reached capacity for event registration and closed the waitlist for this Saturday.

While we wish we were able to host every student and family for Admitted Student Day, we are a very small college with limited crowd capacity that we are approved to host on campus. We are very sorry that we won’t be able to welcome every admitted student this weekend.

The recorded panel sessions for last year’s Admitted Student Day can be viewed on the Admitted Student Day page. Our programming is very similar year to year, and these recordings can be a great resource to get to know Pitzer and our programs.

We encourage all admitted students and families to visit our campus on another date that we can accommodate or to connect with us online in the meantime. Please be sure to check out all of our in-person and virtual visit offerings this spring.
