Day 2  March 8th, 2016

Today in the heavy rain, we went to the Claremont colleges: Claremont McKenna, Harvey Mudd, Pitzer, and Pomona College. While these four schools are separate, their courses and the student communities are in a way combined. These schools are part of a consortium of five undergraduate and two graduate schools known as the Claremont Colleges. The colleges are Pomona CollegeScripps College, Claremont McKenna College, Harvey Mudd College, and Pitzer College. The two graduate institutions include Claremont Graduate University and Keck Graduate Institute. These colleges are all Liberal Arts school offering different majors; in other words, students of these schools can take courses from any of these universities. The colleges are:

Claremont McKenna
This school is famous for its economics, and politics (social sciences major). Compared to the other schools, it's buildings are built with interesting, modern architecture.

Harvey Mudd
This school is based on math and science majors with rich labs and resources. We were lucky enough to have a session with the administrative head and he gave us a tour that really helped us understand the concept of the school.

Pitzer College
For environmental concerns, this school made the movement to save water by planting plants that don't require water so much water so the campus looks like a dessert. This school is for students that are want to try to make a difference in the school and in society at large.

Pomona College

This school has the biggest campus and is the founder of the Claremont colleges. Also this school is considered the hardest to get in to. This school helps students with internships and part time jobs, and it seems that the school is encourages students to have lots of experience outsides of the classrooms as well.
