The best thing about Pomona is that the college wants you to do whatever you want to do. You can get funding for practically anything and because people here are passionate, chances are you'll be able to easily generate interest in the activity. Campus Security is here to make sure you're safe but not to get you in any serious trouble. The size is just right because of the consortium. The small college gives a great homey atmosphere and if you want to meet more people there are plenty of opportunities. There's a quaint college town that's great for a meal out but not much else. Campus is great for everything else and it's really easy to take trips off campus to mountains, beaches and deserts within hour drives. My favorite place on campus is Marston Quad - a wide open field in the center of campus where you can always find a sunny spot to work, play frisbee, slackline, or meet friends. It's Great.
All my professors know my name and are interested in what I have to say. I look forward to classes everyday and genuinely enjoy my outside readings. It's a great academic atmosphere in that people are just learning about what they are interested in and are so passionate about it.
An uptight, super competitive, cutthroat person would feel out of place here. Conservatives are rare but exist and not too concerned with monetary gains. Generally, students want to be happy and learn. People generally wear clothes to class, sometimes without shoes, sometimes without shirts between classes. casual stuff. All students interact. The idea is that everyone who got in to Pomona belongs here and is here for a really cool reason. Talk to anyone and you'll learn something new. I'm a jock, live in a "hippie shack", live with a stereotypical intellectual and am best friends with a girl form India. It's pretty eclectic. Pomona just started scholarship programs where the school provides tons of financial aid. As a result, there are people from all different economic backgrounds.
