As part of our commitment to diversity and intercultural understanding, Pitzer College will host its Spring Diversity Program from Thursday, April 21 to Saturday, April 23, 2016. The Spring Diversity Program is open to all seniors who receive an invitation in their regular decision admit packets.

Meet Us

The program provides prospective students an opportunity to experience the distinctive atmosphere that sets Pitzer College apart from other colleges. You will have a chance to spend two nights on campus with a Pitzer student, attend a class, eat in the dining hall and meet other high school seniors who are considering Pitzer. If you are unable to attend the Diversity Program and would still like to visit Pitzer, we are happy to accommodate your visit during Admitted Student Day on April 22, 2016. The link to register can be found on our admitted student webpage. The URL can be found in your admit packet.


The Diversity Program is an all-inclusive, all-expense-paid program for which round-trip transportation (air, train, bus, gas/mileage reimbursement) will be covered. Attendees will be hosted by current students in the residence halls and will dine on campus throughout the three-day weekend. Check out this video of our program from the spring of 2015!
