Toot Toot



Tooting my own horn, some statistics about my college were released the last couple of days and since I (read: my parents) spent all that money on it I feel bragging rights are in order:
Pomona College students are the happiest in the nation, according to the Princeton Review. The ranking marks the second time in three years that Pomona’s students have been noticed as the nation’s happiest. In the 2004 edition, Pomona students were second.

In the Review's The Best 357 Colleges, 2005 edition, which surveyed more than 110,000 college students nationwide, Pomona College also ranked # 6 in “Students Happy With Financial Aid,” # 7 in “Schools Run Like Butter,” # 11 in “Dorms Like Palaces,” # 13 in “The Toughest to Get Into” and # 17 in “Best Quality of Life.”
Then the US News and World Report Rankings:
Pomona College is ranked fifth among all liberal arts colleges in America by U.S. News & World Report in the magazine's 2005 guide to “America's Best Colleges.” Pomona College also ranked third in selectivity; fourth in “great schools, great prices”; fifth in graduation rate; and 16th in diversity of its student body.

In the most recent survey of the nation’s 217 liberal arts colleges, released on August 20, Pomona tied for the fifth place spot with Carleton College in Minnesota. Williams College (MA) was ranked first, followed by Amherst College (MA) and Swarthmore College (PA) tied at second, and Wellesley College (MA) at fourth.
Claremont McKenna College (another Claremont College) has had some controversy lately with a woman who claimed to be the victim of a hate crime--but turns out she made it up.
