Over the past two weekends, school-sponsored parties held at Scripps College and Claremont McKenna College were shut down sooner than intended, owing to a series of incidents that put student and staff safety at risk.
This October, Pitzer College’s Grove House kitchen officially reopened for the new school year. The Grove House kitchen hosted a soft opening just prior to fall break in mid-October, then officially opened for full service the following week with its hours from 8:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m, Tuesday through Friday.
Pomona College’s Orientation Adventure programs are slated to return this fall semester after a three year hiatus, but this time around, the college is focusing on inclusivity and proximity to campus.
Pomona College will announce a decision whether to furlough some staff members by September 1, officials said.
As colleges start to make plans for the fall, the CDC has released guidelines that would change campus life in order to limit the spread of COVID-19.
When directives to clear the campuses, cancel events and suspend most on-site activity were issued in March, many 5C students scattered for home or alternate residences. But departing students left behind a vastly different landscape for the handful of their classmates that remained at the colleges.
With the threat of coronavirus bearing down, 5C students saw their semesters on campus cut short as administrators asked them to leave.
International students make huge contributions to Pomona College while getting little in return. It’s only fair that Pomona fly the flags of their countries at commencement.
