Following a two-year interruption and a brief appearance last spring, cross-campus dining is back on the menu at the 5Cs for the upcoming fall semester.
With just over five weeks until students return to campus, Pomona College announced some of its COVID-19 guidelines going into the fall semester. The announcement comes on the heel’s of last week’s surge in cases among the college’s faculty and staff.
As summer comes to Claremont, mask mandates and testing requirements are, for the most part, ending. Earlier this week, the 5Cs announced changes to COVID-19 policies for those on campus during break.
The Claremont housing market has changed since Pomona College economics professor Michael Kuehlwein and his family bought their permanent home in the 1990s. In just the past decade alone, Kuehlwein explained, the median home price in Claremont has exploded.
With graduation just around the corner, seniors are gearing up for new journeys that await them. Some are headed to graduate school, some are still looking for jobs. But one senior is headed for an non-traditional yet unique experience: he’ll be working on a submarine.
As the academic year began coming to a close and housing draws for the next academic year took place across the Claremont Colleges, some of the 5Cs announced that students will still need to live in college housing off campus due to continuing housing constraints on campus.
As COVID-19 cases surged to unprecedented levels at the 5Cs throughout April, Claremont McKenna College and Harvey Mudd College quickly found themselves in a complicated position: they didn’t have enough isolation space for everyone who tested positive.
The recent spike in COVID-19 cases at the 5Cs exposures has meant exposure to positive individuals has also likely increased. With students who’ve tested positive exempt from PCR testing during the 90 day recovery period, what should they do if they’ve been re-exposed?
Los Angeles County is losing its free testing sites. Among the services that have been cut in recent weeks is the free COVID-19 testing program in Claremont’s public schools, putting some parents in a tight spot.
At least 190 people have tested positive across the Claremont Colleges since Monday, intensifying a surge in COVID-19 cases that began after students returned from spring break in late March.
