Pomona College is a private liberal arts college located in Claremont, California, United States. Established in 1887, and the founding member of the Claremont Colleges, Pomona is a non-sectarian, coeducational school. Since 1925, the Claremont Colleges, which have grown to include five undergraduate and two graduate institutions, have provided Pomona's student body with the resources of a larger university while maintaining the benefits of a small college.
Pomona is an exclusively undergraduate four-year institution and enrolled approximately 1,640 students in fall 2015. Students design their academic journey from 47 majors and over 2000 consortium-wide courses. A residential life in which over 98% of students live on campus, over 400 opportunities in academic research and pre-professional programs funded by Pomona, and the cultural offerings and experiences of the Greater Los Angeles Area help to complement the classroom experience.
Pomona is ranked first out of all undergraduate colleges and universities in the United States by Forbes, and tied with Bowdoin, Middlebury, and Wellesley colleges for fourth out of all liberal arts colleges by U.S. News & World Report. It is one of the most selective and endowed institutions in the country, with a 9.7% acceptance rate for the 2019 admissions cycle and an endowment per student of over one million dollars. Among the current student body, 70% of students hail from out of state, close to 60% receive need-based financial aid, and over 53% identify as students of color and international students.(Wikipedia)
