Pomona College[edit]

While I'm sure Pomona College is an enjoyable place to study in, I don't think it's NPOV to mention that in an encyclopaedia article. Gokul

The Pomona College article does claim that they were ranked as having the happiest students by the Princeton Review, but, having gone to Harvey Mudd College, I think that's just because they take almost no classes. I think I would've been much happier, too, taking a third fewer classes. --Laura Scudder | Talk 01:08, 27 Jun 2005 (UTC)


Picture of Harvey Mudd[edit]

I'd like to add a picture of the Harvey Mudd campus, unless there are severe objections. Not sure why it's the only college left out, unless people confused the 'Honnald-Mudd' library with 'Harvey Mudd College'.

Seems to have gone well. Enjoy my first wikipedia upload. I'll remember to sign my comments in the future... -- Tythos Eternal 04:17, 20 February 2007 (UTC)
It's a shame that the picture is just old enough to show the campus as it clearly no longer is today. That sundial has been moved Eastward and there's now a flagpole there. LWizard @ 08:47, 20 February 2007 (UTC)

Moved from Five Colleges (Massachusetts)[edit]

I've removed the following paragraph from the article on the Mass. Five-College Consortium:

The Claremont Colleges, also known as "the five-C's" may have been modeled after the five colleges, although the Claremont colleges did not account for five schools until the creation of Pitzer College in 1963. The Five-C's have their own variations of the Scooby Doo analogy, although they do not attribute the creation of the characters to their respective schools. One commonly held version of the analogy associates Daphne with Scripps College, Velma with Harvey Mudd College, Fred with Claremont McKenna College, Shaggy with Pitzer College, and Scooby with Pomona College.

I leave it to editors with more knowledge of things Claremont to decide whether this belongs in the article. The non-urban-legend part strikes me as a somewhat historically dubious claim ("may have been modeled"? really?) but, if true, could probably be sourced and cited. -- Rbellin|Talk 14:50, 21 December 2006 (UTC)

Total enrollment[edit]

What would it be? --JimWae (talk) 21:19, 2 November 2009 (UTC)

Revision[edit]

The whole content has been revised. -- Wildcursive (talk) 07:15, 19 May 2011 (UTC)

Pneumonic plague - trivia?[edit]

From Plague_(disease): "On August 31, 1984, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported a case of pneumonic plague in Claremont, California. The CDC believes that the patient, a veterinarian, contracted plague from a stray cat. As the cat wasn't available for necropsy, this could not be ultimately confirmed." (Source: http://www.cdc.gov/mmwr/preview/mmwrhtml/00000394.htm) Claremont Colleges have been working with bio threats for a looong time. 217.144.100.18 (talk) 14:59, 1 November 2011 (UTC)

"All seven-institution Claremont Colleges system is supported by the Claremont University Consortium." This sentence is weird. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 72.209.169.177 (talk) 18:53, 18 November 2012 (UTC)

Prestigious?[edit]

I removed 'prestigious' from the lead paragraph because of a lack of support from the source given. Although the word 'prestigious' was mentioned in association with the subject, it was not intended to be used as an absolute term, but a relative one ('seem to grow more prestigious every year').
