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.

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

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Pitzer is proactive in creating a supportive environment. They address sexual assault seriously. However, this can get complicated when students from multiple schools are involved, as each 5C has different policies.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I always feel safe on campus, and people definitely speak out against sexual assault. I've never experienced a situation where I have felt endangered/threatened/disrespected at any point this past year, but I can only speak for myself.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: You can't rely on Student Health to fix any major health problem. They are not very knowledgable nor are they helpful. On campus there is counseling available, but there are too few counselors to student ratio so it can be hard to schedule an appointment. All 5c are extremely safe and it is rare to hear about any crime concerning students. Campus security is constantly driving around and will respond immediately if a student reports any suspicious activity.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

The city of Claremont is a safe community, and the majority of Pitzer students feels very safe and secure on campus. The Claremont Colleges have campus security available 24/7, as well as emergency call-boxes that will immediately alert Campus Safety if you need help. Though Claremont is a very quiet town, small crimes are committed a few times each year, such as thefts or students running into unwanted "townies" while out for a late-night run by themselves. It is for this reason that Pitzer strongly suggests traveling with at least one other person at all times. If something were to occur, the Pitzer administration always informs the entire student body of the details of the incident, including suggestions on how to avoid these circumstances from reoccurring. Pitzer students use the key-card system, which allows only students to enter Pitzer academic buildings and dormitories. Pitzer also recently installed video surveillance to keep out unwanted visitors.

The Student Health Center is a wonderful addition to the Claremont Colleges that provides physical, emotional, and psychological assistance to all students. The center, located on Pomona's campus, has a friendly staff that never hesitates to offer help.
