Pomona is a great place if you are looking for a nurturing environment with lots of friendly people-both the faculty and the students are very nice and helpful. Even though it is a small school, you can go to any of the five Claremont Colleges for entertainment and/or classes, so in that sense it is kind of like going to a big university. There are lots of benefits to being part of the Claremont Consortium: there are many dining halls at your disposal since a student of one school can eat at any other campus using the meal plan; if there aren't any parties at Pomona then you can walk to other schools; you can join organizations at the other schools and meet people there if you ever get tired of seeing the same people all the time. I love Pomona, but it is not without its faults. It costs a LOT of money to be a student here; if you really want to get off campus, then you definitely need a car; Pomona students kind of live in a bubble because we are a little disconnected from the outside world; despite being one of the best liberal arts colleges in America, nobody knows about Pomona, so if you're looking for a school with plenty of name recognition this is not the place for you. But, as I said before, Pomona is a great school, and it takes really good care of its students. Maybe we get isolated because we (for the most part) all love it here, and there is so much to do in such a small space that there isn't really much need to communicate with the rest of the world…
