Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Claremont McKenna doesn’t have a great system: the entire school is one giant frat. CMC hosts almost all of the big parties of the 5Cs, and the average student loves to get their party on.

There are weekly parties on Thursdays called TNC (Thursday Night Club). There are also parties on Fridays and Saturdays, which tend to be a little bigger/themed. Some of the student favorites include toga parties, Monte Carlo, and Halloween. The student government, ASCMC, has $250,000 a year to play with, and they focus on making the parties epic. Alcohol is always provided at the parties (usually it’s kegs, but occasionally it's something else), and some parties have amazing raffle prizes, such as trips to Vegas or even Paris!

ASCMC also subsidizes other student activities, such as trips to pro-sports games and on-campus music festivals. There are many levels of ASCMC involvement, from über-busy presidents to more laid-back senators. For the most part, people don’t need a Greek life at CMC because they never have to search for a party.
