Pomona is not too far from the city of Pasadena, it is between other cute cities with malls, and you not too far from Orange County. I like that! Otherwise, Pomona is alright. There's not a lot to do, mainly houses, and the roads aren't in the best condition. There are really cute neighborhoods hidden away though! Like all cities there's crime, but there are safe neighborhoods. So, Pomona is an average suburb.

I have lived in Pomona for almost five years now. There is a lot of diversity within the community. It is also right in between Los Angeles and San Bernardino /Riverside which makes traveling convenient. What I enjoy most about Pomona is everything you need is local or a couple blocks away. There are local supermarkets, restaurants, gas stations and etc. What I would like to see change in Pomona is to have more community gatherings. For example, the Art Walk is such a great event that brings the community together. I would also like to see more programs to help the homeless. Overall, I haven't really had any issues living in Pomona.
I am from the desert when I arrived to CA it seemed so green to my eyes. I loved the tall species of palm trees and so did my best friends via pictures. Unfortunately, I am looking at somewhere between 50,000 dollars/ YR for four years of veterinary school that is a traumatic nightmare because I will not be making anywhere near that type of money/ YR after I graduate with my DVM. How will I be able to live comfortably and manage to pay off my student loans?! =[. Residents are Mexican American, the schools consist of mostly Anglo Americans which makes me stand out in the crowd I am a Hispanic graduate level female. The traffic is crazy. In Texas the freeways are congested but not as they are in California no wonder the highways in CA are so long. In El Paso, Texas 65MPH is fast on the freeways, when 75 MPH is acceptable speed and 80+ is normal speed this is scary. I do not want to be run over when I am heading to class. In the end, the people are very friendly and helpful.
