5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: The colleges are making a lot of efforts to prevent sexual assault, by providing teal dot training and actively promoting support services. Campus security guys are super cool and helpful.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Life is is great as long as you know what you are doing. It's easy to find your place even though sometimes you could feel threaten by various issues!

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I'm not sure about after graduation but it seems like most graduates manage to find jobs that they like

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Most dorms at Pitzer are newly built, two doubles share a bathroom. It could get nasty if you don't clean up your room and bathroom but overall the living quality is really nice!

Athletics: Sports at liberal arts schools like the 5Cs are not big, but could be important to a lot of students especially the athletes. CMS are more pumped up by sports than PP in general.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Pitzer is good in terms of its collaboration with the other colleges. Academic things are also great, but in terms of the political atmosphere on campus, it's not the best place for moderates and conservatives. Sometimes, we could feel uncomfortable dealing with the issues on campus.

5 College Student

Health & Safety: Everyone is safe on campus it is located in a really good area.

5 College Student

Overall Experience: Just an amazing campus all in all.

5 College Student

Overall Experience: It is recognized wountry wide and there are a lot of good job cnnections on campus.

3 College Student

Campus Housing: The fact that you have to share a restroom with three other people is not great but it is better then sharing it with the entire building.

2 College Student

Greek Life: We do not have a greek life program.

3 College Student

Athletics: Not up to date but for the small campus it is its okay.

4 College Student

Overall Experience: Really amazing people and the professors help the students on a one on one basis.

4 College Junior

Academics: Great places to study. Professor love it when you come in to their office hours. Workload depends on what you are studying and how you study. Regrestration process can sometimes be annoying and confusing.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: Not very much variety. It depends on your major but most of my classes I had to take off campus. I am an economics major so CMC held most of my classes. Other classes though I heard were very good at Pitzer. Environmental analysis is big at Pitzer so I can imagine those courses are very interesting.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: It's a fairly new school, so the alumni network is not too large. However, being a part of the consortium does help a little as there are a lot of networking from other schools. The value of a degree at Pitzer really depends what your resume looks like. Most jobs nowadays want to see experience, a degree is something required and in this case, a degree at Pitzer can help since the Claremont colleges are well known.

1 College Junior

Greek Life: It's non existent, but there are small clubs or organizations that claim to be similar to fraternities. It's really not a thing at the Claremont colleges. I don't mind it but it would be nice to have them. I can understand the motive of not having them, but at the same time it's weird being the only school without one.

2 College Junior

Athletics: Athletics are not a big deal. It is sad to watch our rival games as it reminds us of a high school football match. Come to think of it, a high school football match might be more entertaining than our games. Basketball is pretty fun to watch, but only when Pomona-Pitzer play against CMS. The other times, no one really watches sports.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: There are a lot of perks attending a small liberal arts school. Pitzer is very unique and the consortium itself is very individual. At Pitzer, I sometimes wonder what I am doing at school, as there are plenty of opportunities but they do not interest me or it is sometimes rare to hear of any career opportunities. Other schools like Pomona and Claremont McKenna have a lot of resources and reach out to their student body more, I feel. Nonetheless, being a part of the 5C's enables me to seek opportunities elsewhere. Pitzer is an overall great school, academically rigorous, being a fairly new school.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: Pitzer College is one of the most unique campuses I've ever been to. Its community is based around treating each other with respect.

4 College Freshman

Academics: Most departments are small and only have a few professors. This can be great because you get very close with professors, but also a con because there can be a shortage of resources/ classes.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

Pitzer is a truly wonderful place filled with people who want to make a difference and embrace change. There does not exist one specific Pitzer student; rather, once on campus, you will be welcomed by a myriad of different personalities, opinions, and likes and dislikes. If there were to be a general consensus about the students at Pitzer, it would be that they are driven individuals who seek to make the world a better place. But Pitzer students could not do what they do alone. The student body is a reflection of a much bigger entity: the faculty, staff, administration, groundskeepers, dining hall workers, and everyone else who makes a contribution to the school help to unify it and make it the amazing place the students know it as today. The school has grown so much, and it has only been around since 1963! One can only imagine what immense changes are to come.

Most students enjoy their time at Pitzer and the Claremont Consortium as a whole, though some common complaints include the cost, the lack of school spirit, and the pretty tame party scene. If you look past all of this, though, you will inevitably see that being given the chance to study at Pitzer is the opportunity of a lifetime. Pitzer is not your average higher education institution; it offers unique opportunities such as traveling with your professor to do research or working closely with the administration to make the school the place you want it to be. You may come here for an education, but in reality, you're going to walk away with a whole lot more.
