Pitzer College is a highly selective, private residential liberal arts college located in Claremont, California, a college town approximately 30 miles (48 km) east of downtown Los Angeles. Pitzer College is one of seven institutions of higher learning known as The Claremont Colleges and coordinated through the Claremont University Consortium. The school has a curricular emphasis on the social sciences, behavioral sciences, international programs, and Media Studies.[1] As one of the Claremont Colleges, consortium resources (libraries, dining halls, etc.) are shared and students from Pitzer College are encouraged to take classes at the other four Claremont Colleges as well as at Pitzer. Likewise, students from the other Claremont Colleges are permitted to take classes at Pitzer. Together the Claremont Colleges

Pitzer was founded in 1963 as a women’s teaching college by Russell K. Pitzer (1878-1978), a California citrus magnate, philanthropist, and Pomona College alumnus. In April 1963, poet and visionary John W. Atherton was hired as Pitzer’s first president, and over the next seventeen months he recruited students, faculty, and trustees and constructed Scott and Sanborn Halls just in time for the fall 1964 semester. During the College’s first year, students and faculty created the curriculum and the school’s system of governance. The College graduated its first class of students in 1967 and became coeducational three years later.[2] That first academic term began with ten professors and 153 students from sixteen states and five countries. Pitzer College Presidents • John W. Atherton, founding president (1963-1970) • Robert H. Atwell, second President, (1970-1978) • Frank L. Ellsworth, third president and life trustee (1979-1991) • Marilyn C. Massey, fourth president (1992-2002) • Laura Skandera Trombley, current president (2002-present)

Campus
Pitzer’s campus is located in Claremont, California, covering an area of approximately 35 acres. The campus is located approximately 10 miles (16 km) west of LA/Ontario International Airport and Los Angeles can be accessed via Metrolink, with the station located approximately eight blocks south west of campus.

residence halls. The Pitzer College campus occupies the north east corner of the Claremont Colleges’ property.[3] Currently, Foothill Boulevard/Historic Route 66 and Harvey Mudd College border the campus to the north, Claremont Boulevard to the east, Ninth Street to the south, and North Mills Avenue to the west. Possible future campus expansion into the Claremont University Consortium East Campus Property would extend the eastern boundary of campus towards Monte Vista Boulevard. At present, the campus is split approximately in half by Pitzer Road. Harvey Mudd College is adjacent to Pitzer’s north, Scripps to the west, and Claremont McKenna to the south.[4] Contemporary architecture characterizes the majority of Pitzer’s buildings, several of which were designed by Gwathmey-Siegel following major donations from Eli Broad, a member emeritus and former chair of the Pitzer College Board of Trustees.[5] A notable exception is the Grove House, a California Bungalow built in 1902 for a local citrus grower during the height of the Arts and Crafts movement. The building, a popular campus hangout, was moved to Pitzer in 1977 under the direction of professor emeritus Barry Sanders. The John R. Rodman Arboretum is part of the campus, and most landscaping follows principles of xeriscaping. Several varieties of citrus and other fruit are grown throughout campus and a community garden and dedicated grove are located north of Mead Hall. The campus lies less than five miles (8 km) south of the San Gabriel Mountains, on top of the alluvial fans that come from nearby San Antonio Canyon. The campus is relatively flat, with a 4% uphill grade from southwest to northeast. Mount Baldy is 15 miles (24 km) north of the College and is visible from the campus. The Mount Baldy Ski Lifts is a popular spot for students to ski in the winter. On clear days, the Chino Hills are visible to the south and San Bernardino Mountains to the east. Located directly north west of the main campus, the Bernard Field Station[1] is an 86 acre nature preserve consisting of coastal sage scrub. "The Outback" refers to the undeveloped natural area of campus bordered by Foothill Boulevard to the north, Claremont Boulevard to the east, Atherton and Sanborn Halls to

the south, and Harvey Mudd College to the west. The area is characterized by plant communities that once covered most of the surrounding region, coastal sage scrub and chaparral. There are many different areas situated throughout the Outback including: a small gully in the northeast corner, a stone bench/rock couch situated near the southern edge, as well as a small stone seat further north, there is an unfinished stone pyramid, the all-encompassing tree is near the center.

Finca La Isla del Cielo
Pitzer owns and operates a 145-acre (0.59 km2) field station on secondary growth rainforest, the Firestone Center for Restoration Ecology[2]. The facility is located approximately two kilometers east of Playa Dominical, Costa Rica.[6] The property borders the Hacienda Barú[3] nature reserve. The Center is home to programs in Pitzer’s science, language, and international studies curricula.[7]

Housing Master Plan
Pitzer is currently engaged in a multi-million dollar Residential Life Project to significantly expand the facilities of the College. The Residential Life Project is expected to be completed in three phases over the next 10 to 15 years. Phase One, which included East Sanborn, North Sanborn, Pitzer, and Atherton Halls, was completed and occupied during September 2007. Robert Redford and Ed Begley, Jr. were the keynote speakers at the dedication ceremony of the New Dorms Complex. The New Dorms received LEED GOLD Certification by the United States Green Building Council in 2008. The College’s Green Bike Program is an integral part of the Residential Life Project, and helped secure certain points needed for eventual GOLD Certification.[26] Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) is the national standard for sustainable buildings created by the U.S. Green Building Council. With the completion of the third phase of the Residential Life Project, Pitzer College is expected to become the

Student clubs and organizations
There are more than 150 student clubs and organizations available to join within the Claremont College consortium. Notable amongst these is the Green Bike Program, known as "the GBP", a student run bicycle cooperative that maintains a full service shop, as well as fleet of 100 recovered and reused bicycles that are given out free of charge each semester for student use. The GBP works to provide an alternative mode of transportation to combat the predominate and destructive car culture in Southern California, as well as to reduce consumption and consumerism while increasing the practical use of recycled and reused materials. As the only organization of its kind in the area, save for the sister-GBP at Pomona College, the GBP maintains a strong DIY ethic, and has in

Academics
The Claremont Colleges
As a member of The Claremont College Consortium, Pitzer students have access to nearly all facilities available to students enrolled at the other colleges (e.g. the Athenaeum at Claremont McKenna College, Malott Commons at Scripps College, Jay’s Place/ former ’mudhole’ of Harvey Mudd College, and the Rose Hills Theater at Pomona College), in addition to all facilities administered by the Claremont College Consortium. Much of student life revolves around the five colleges, or "5C’s." Pitzer College, Claremont McKenna College, Pomona College, Scripps College and Harvey Mudd College all interact socially, but also share dining halls, libraries, and other facilities spread throughout the adjoining campuses. All five colleges are part of the Claremont University Consortium. Any student attending Pitzer can enroll in classes at the other four colleges, and can complete an off-campus major in the event that the concentration is not offered at Pitzer. This is the general academic policy at all five schools, and is meant to give students the resources of a larger university while still maintaining the qualities of a small, liberalarts college. Over the years, a rivalry has formed between the opposing sports teams CMS (Claremont-Mudd-Scripps) and PP (PomonaPitzer).
