The Claremont Colleges -- Claremont McKenna, Harvey Mudd, Pitzer, Pomona, and Scripps Colleges -- are united by a unique spirit of collaboration and connectivity that influences every part of academics, athletics, and student life. The “5Cs” are literally located across the street from one another, so students can attend a small, tightly-focused college even as they enjoy the benefits of a bigger, multi-faceted campus.

Throughout the fall we are hosting virtual programs for prospective students and families to learn more about our shared and singular approaches to liberal arts education. During our programs you'll discover what makes our consortium special, hear more about our distinctive missions, and learn about the selective college admission process. After the presentations, you'll have a chance to ask questions to the presenters.
