As part of our commitment to diversity and intercultural understanding, Pitzer College will host its Spring Diversity Program from Thursday, April 16 to Saturday, April 18, 2015. This program is designed specifically for admitted high school seniors from underrepresented racial, cultural, and socioeconomic backgrounds from across the continental United States. The Spring Diversity Program is open to all seniors who received an invitation in their regular decision admit packets.
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. If you are unable to attend the Diversity Program and would still like to visit Pitzer, we are happy to accommodate your visit for either of our Admitted Student Days, April 10 or April 17. You can register from our admitted student website! The URL is 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.
