I’m a local student. How do I get to campus?
If you are from the Southern California area, you can choose to arrange travel yourself or have Pitzer staff members coordinate your travel to campus through bus or train. You will have the opportunity to indicate this on your RSVP form. If you are driving yourself or being dropped off, you will be reimbursed for the mileage. Here is more information on navigating your way to campus. If you are parking on campus during the program, parking is free in the East Mesa Parking Lot adjacent to the Office of Admission.
What will students do on campus?
As a participant in the Spring Diversity Program, you will attend Admitted Student Day on Friday, April 12, 2019. Additionally, you will stay in the residence halls with a current student, attend a class, and eat in the dining hall. You will also have the chance to meet with faculty, staff, and current Pitzer students.
Will the program cover the other Claremont Colleges?
While there will be some exposure to the other Claremont Colleges, this program is geared towards students who are interested in Pitzer College. All students on the Diversity Program are required to attend all planned programming and stay within the parameters of the five Claremont Colleges.
Why should I attend
The program allows students who might not otherwise have the means to visit Pitzer an opportunity to experience our campus community.
I cannot attend the program. Are there other opportunities to visit campus?
Unfortunately, we are not able to offer other expense-paid options outside of the Diversity Program. You can schedule an overnight visit at another time, here: www.pitzer.edu/admission/visiting-campus
