Diversity FAQs

Pitzer College seeks to enroll students whose backgrounds and experiences offer varying perspectives on living and learning in a multicultural world.  In order to accomplish this, we offer this program to encourage students to visit and enroll at Pitzer College. The Spring Diversity Program will occur from April 22 – April 24, 2016.

Spring 2016

Who is eligible?
Admitted high school seniors (regular decision only) who have received an invitation in their admit packets._MG_1603

How do I RSVP?
The online reservation form will be made available in March. Space is limited, so it is important that students register shortly after receiving their invitation. The deadline to apply is April 1, 2016.

Who is accepted?
The spring program is for admitted students who receive an invitation in their admit packets.

How do I know if my RSVP was received?
Once you RSVP online, you will be redirected to a confirmation page notifying you that your application has been received with further instructions. If you do not receive this email, please email Mattie Ross at mattie_ross@pitzer.edu.

What will students do on campus?
As a participant in the Spring Diversity Program, you will attend Admitted Student Day on Friday, April 22, 2016. Additionally, you will stay in the residence halls with a current student, attend a class, and eat in the dining hall. You will also have the chance to meet with faculty, staff, and current Pitzer students.

Will the program cover the other Claremont Colleges?
While there will be a scavenger hunt around the other Claremont Colleges, this program is geared towards students who are interested in Pitzer College. All students on the Diversity Program are required to attend all planned programming and stay within the parameters of the Claremont Colleges.

Why should I attend?
The program allows students who might not otherwise have the means to visit Pitzer an opportunity to experience our campus community.13909186471_6804a30aa9_b

I cannot attend the program. Are there other opportunities to visit campus?
Unfortunately, we are not able to offer other expense-paid options outside of the Diversity Program. You can schedule an overnight visit at another time, here: http://pitweb.pitzer.edu/admission/visiting-campus/
