The Claremont Colleges Online Information Sessions

The Claremont Colleges -- Claremont McKennaHarvey MuddPitzerPomona, and Scripps Colleges -- are united by a unique spirit of collaboration and connectivity that influences every part of academics, athletics, and student life. The “5Cs” are literally located across the street from one another, so students can attend a small, tightly-focused college even as they enjoy the benefits of a bigger, multi-faceted campus.

We invite you to attend our upcoming virtual programs for prospective students, their families, and counselors to learn more about our shared and singular approaches to liberal arts education. 

During our programs you'll discover what makes our consortium special, and hear more about our distinctive missions. After the presentations, you'll have a chance to ask questions to the presenters.
