A seemingly ordinary Monday night turned into a disaster for some Pomona College students when the Mudd Hall basement flooded with a foul-smelling black water around 10 p.m. April 4.
From surprise roommates in rooms designated for one to a lack of basic cleaning supplies and repeated disconnects on when and how students could leave or test out, Pomona students in isolation tell TSL the experience has often left them feeling isolated in more ways than one.
A warm, dry Friday got even drier in parts of the 5Cs when repairs by local utility Golden State Water Company caused water service to shut off on the consortium’s northern campuses. Pitzer College, Scripps College and Harvey Mudd College were affected.
Having announced that the 5Cs will kick off the spring semester with two weeks of remote instruction, some schools are walking back the dates by which students are expected to arrive in Claremont.
Scripps College residential coordinators are protesting the Nov. 8 probation of one of their members, the latest in a spate of grievances the team has reported with the college’s administration this semester.

Scripps admitted another large class this year, raising concerns of another housing shortage like last year’s, which sent 38 students to CGU.
