The Claremont Colleges 

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.

You are invited to attend their upcoming virtual program for prospective students, families, and counselors to learn more about our shared and singular approaches to liberal arts education.

During the program, you’ll discover what makes their consortium special and hear more about their distinctive missions. After the presentation, you’ll have a chance to ask questions to the presenters.

5C Student Panel  – Saturday, March 20 at 1 p.m. EST
Are you curious about what life is like at the 5Cs? Our community members are excited to share! This session features a panel of 5C current students who are eager to answer your questions.

Registration will close 24 hours before the event start time. There is a 1,000 person limit for each event, and they will have a waitlist. If you are on the waitlist you will be notified via email if space becomes available for the event in which you are registered.
