For a school of about 1,000 students, Pitzer College has a remarkably diverse and international student body. The curriculum is particularly strong in the social sciences, and a significant number of students participate in study abroad and community service. Also, potential applicants shouldn't be fooled by the small size of Pitzer. As a member of the Claremont Colleges, Pitzer students have easy access to the classes and campus resources of all seven schools in the consortium. And for those urban yearnings, Pitzer students can take a short walk to the Metrolink for easy transport to Los Angeles.
Pitzer is highly selective. You can learn more about the costs and admissions criteria in the Pitzer College profile, and be sure to poke around the Pitzer website. If you have impressions of Pitzer to share with our readers, please do so in the College Admissions Forum.
