Quality of Life

Housing is great and campus is beautiful. I rarely really leave the campus because everything you want is here. The dinning halls are pretty good but can be improved. The neighborhood is very safe and I never ever have to worry about being mugged by a homeless person or my overall safety. I say that most everyone here is happy and that this is one of the best atmospheres I have experienced.

Short and Long-Term aspirations (ask) of the individuals being interviewed. Is the interviewee comfortable working closely with clients in collaborative problem solving. How comfortable is the interviewee in working with members at all levels (including corporate ownership) on a frequent basis?

Academics

All classes are divided into five areas (i.e. humanities, social sciences, math, science, etc) and each student must take one class in each area. Additionally, each student must complete three semesters of foreign language (or test out), and take a PE class. The breadth requirements are very light. Academic advisors are assigned randomly to all freshmen; once they have declared their major, they must select an advisor in their field. Advising is required to enroll in classes. Class sizes are small. My largest class at Pomona has been about 25 people, but generally they range from 10-20. Professors are ridiculously accessible - their doors are open, they know your name, they invite you over for dinner. Research opportunities are plentiful; the summer undergraduate research program pays students to do research with their professors. Students are not at all competitive amongst each other; group work is encouraged and very common. Grading is inflated. Workload is definitely what you make of it, but mine was huge.
