Small classes, top-notch facilities and distinguished professors who work closely with students are key elements of a Pomona education. Established in 1887, Pomona College is widely regarded as one of the premier liberal arts colleges in America.
The college is located in Claremont, California, a charming town 35 miles east of Los Angeles. Pomona is the founding member of The Claremont Colleges, a consortium of seven independent institutions blending the intimate atmosphere of small colleges with the academic and social resources of a university. Famous beaches, ski resorts and Los Angeles' many cultural offerings all are within easy driving distance of the campus.
Pomona's 140-acre campus has 60 buildings, including 12 residence halls housing nearly all students in attendance. Eighteen buildings are shared by all seven of The Claremont Colleges, including libraries, a student services center and a bookstore.
