As part of our commitment to diversity and intercultural understanding, Pitzer College will host a Fall Diversity Program from Thursday, October 23 to Saturday, October 25, 2014. This program is designed specifically for high school seniors from underrepresented racial, cultural, and socioeconomic backgrounds from across the continental United States.
The program provides prospective students an opportunity to experience the distinct atmosphere that sets Pitzer College apart from other colleges while interacting with current students, faculty, staff and other high school seniors considering Pitzer.
The Diversity Program is an 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.
The application is due on Thursday, September 18, 2014. Please note that an unofficial transcript (through junior year) is required to be sent to email@example.com within 24 hours of submission.
