Fall Preview Pitzer Day

Pitzer College will be hosting one Preview Pitzer Day this year on Friday, October 30.  Prospective students will have an opportunity to spend a full day on Pitzer’s campus with their families.  Students will interact with other prospective students, meet the Admission and Financial Aid staff, enjoy conversations with faculty, eat lunch on campus and explore all Pitzer has to offer.  In addition, students coming from outside of Southern California will be given an opportunity to spend the night on campus the Thursday before the program. Check our website for more information.

Campus Updates
It has been a busy summer at Pitzer as we make improvements across campus, renovating facilities and expanding our lauded, low-water landscaping. Here are some highlights:

  • Pitzer welcomed new Sagehens Athletic Director, Lesley Irvine, who joined Pomona-Pitzer Athletics in June.
  • Pitzer’s Vacinne Development Institute, in partnership with the University of Botswana, began clinical field tests on its first vacinne this summer.
  • Facilities is removing grass turf in selected areas and installing drought-tolerant landscaping to help save water and comply with recent California state-mandated water-use reductions.
  • Facilities has replaced traditional water-flushing urinals with waterless fixtures in various buildings around campus.
  • In July, Pitzer was represented on a divestment panel at the California Higher Education Sustainability Conference in San Francisco.
  • Interim President, Thomas Poon, welcomes faculty, students, parents and staff to campus for Pitzer’ 52nd year of transformative liberal arts education.
  • Pitzer College’s search for its 6th president is underway. Pitzer’s impressive trajectory in recent years, its membership in The Claremont Colleges consortium, and its unique place in the world of higher education all make the Pitzer presidency a highly desirable postion.
  • Pitzer parents and Trustees hosted New Student Welcome events in eleven cities including Hong Kong, Washington D.C., Boston, New York, South Pasadena, Seattle, Chicago, Denver, Beverly Hills, Portland, and San Rafael.
