Pomona College Holding Diversity Weekend 9/26-29
Yes, I know, it’s only May but if you want to get your spot for diversity weekend, then start planning now! Pomona College (which ranks #3 for Best Value and #5 in National Liberal Arts Colleges according to US News Best College Rankings) has their applications available and online now and recommends applying early.
From their site:
Pomona College hosts The Fall Weekend [pdf] program which allows for students from diverse backgrounds that are traditionally underrepresented on college campuses to experience the Pomona College campus over the span of a weekend.
Over The Fall Weekend, prospective students will have the opportunity to meet current students, speak with faculty, and explore the Pomona College community. Space is limited due to the size of our small, engaged community, however we are dedicated to providing this opportunity to those whom the program will most benefit.
This year we will be hosting two weekends which will take place September 26-29 and October 10-13.
Students interested in attending should complete the The Fall Weekend Application. A completed application includes:
- Current high school transcript
- 12th grade courses
- Self-reported testing (SAT or ACT)
- Application essay
These items must be received by the Office of Admissions by the appropriate application deadline:
- Weekend 1 – September 26-29, 2015 (application packets due August 14, 2015)
- Weekend 2 – October 10-13, 2015 (application packets due September 4, 2015)
