Nightlife at Claremont is kind of a love-hate affair. The student government (ASCMC) dedicates a lot of resources and energy to making nightlife fun for all, but people either love a Claremont party or hate it.
The people that love it enjoy free beverages and crazy themes. Every week, there is TNC (Thursday Night Club), and there are usually parties on either Friday or Saturday, as well. Drinks are free and easy to come by, which sets Claremont apart from most schools in the country. Students never have to worry about getting in trouble for having a good time, as long as they keep it under control.
Over-21 students may go to bars, but, for the most part, nightlife is on campus.
For those who don’t love a Claremont party, nightlife can be extremely limiting. There’s a small crowd of mostly upperclassmen who prefer the club scene in LA, where the nightlife is the best in the country. For those who don’t like to drink/party (the two go hand in hand here), it can be kind of tough. There are student organizations dedicated to dry activities, but they are sparsely attended. Stark, the only substance-free dorm on campus, has some movie nights and other activities, but, once again, not too many people go.
