Claremont Colleges poised for fall
Students across the seven Claremont Colleges took part in a significant rite of passage this week and moved into their new homes for the semester.
Scholars and their families clogged the streets in and around Claremont Graduate University, Keck Graduate Institute, Harvey Mudd, Scripps, Claremont McKenna, Pitzer and Pomona colleges, providing a familiar tableau of moving boxes, bedding and emotional goodbyes.
New students at Scripps moved into their dorms on Tuesday. Returning students will arrive over the August 27-28 weekend.
In-person classes for each of the institutions begin on Monday, August 29. Information on COVID-19 protocols and orientation can be found on each of the college’s webpages.
Residents should once again be wary of students crossing streets in and around the Colleges as they make their way to and from classes throughout the school year.
