Pitzer College Reviews
Review Pitzer College
Pitzer College is truly a place I can call home. Despite some far-left tendencies that are hard to deal with at times, there are plenty of opportunities at the Claremont Colleges to get away from that and still find a community. At Pitzer, the professors are brilliant and caring educators that really are concerned with the students, rather than getting a reputation or working on research. There's plenty of opportunities to interact with professors in and outside the classroom. The food is amazing, and so are the festivals on campus!
I am currently a senior at Pitzer and have loved my experience here! The social life is amazing and inclusive, the academics are rigorous but the professors are always there to help, and the campus and students are quirky as ever.
It is a great school overall, and the ranking is going up every year. They are doing a great job with diversity as well as first year experiences. The ample resource from all other four schools of 5C is also a bonus. However, since it is a school of a very strong personality, for students of other types (like myself), there can be a sense of disconnection and isolation from the school vibe from time to time. And sometimes it can feel a little too small regarding the campus size and population (not only Pitzer, but 5C also). People there are among some of the nicest people I've known though.
