We Had A Ball

Celebrating 50 Years the Pitzer Way!


The Pitzer College campus rocked on May 3! Alumni, faculty, students, staff, trustees, friends and families came together for the Orange & White Ball to celebrate the College’s 50th birthday on the Mounds. View a photo gallery of the celebration and watch the latest video!

President Laura Skandera Trombley hosted the party and announced Pitzer has raised $50 million during the 50Forward Campaign.  There were also dedications, donor recognition and fabulous performances by Earth Wind & Fire, MarchFourth Marching Band, Claudia Lennear ’06, Tanktop Matt and the Funktet, Storey Sheinberg ’12, Alex Fraknoi ’16, Robert “Rmax” Goodwin ’12 and Charles Shaughnessy P’12 & P’17.


Pitzer’s 50Forward Campaign has raised $50 million to expand student aid, strengthen academic programs, improve critical facilities and increase alumni participation—thanks to you! Please help us keep the momentum going and consider a gift before the end of the fiscal year on June 30. Provida Futuri!
