Tips to Succeed
- Don't come here if you don't want to be in a tight community of very driven and involved students.
- Get to know your professors-go to office hours, talk to them after class, ask questions.
- Go to the Ath!! You'll hear some amazing speakers-and you can usually network with professors.
- If you don't have any experience drinking alcohol, you may be traumatized when you come here.
- Request any dorm but Phillips.
- Take advantage of Jim Nauls as a resource (he will subsidize ANYTHING that you want to do).
- Take advantage of the classes offered at the other 4Cs.
Did You Know?
- Claremont students can cross-register for any classes across the consortium, often including graduate-level classes, and students can even major through another college while still receiving a Claremont McKenna College degree.
- Claremont McKenna does not offer minors. Instead, students may choose to dual major, which slightly reduces the course load of both majors, making two areas of study more manageable. Best of all, tell someone at home you're a bio-lit dual major, and they'll assume you're actually doing the full double!
- Claremont also offers sequences, which allow students to get credit for other areas of study. Some examples are the Leadership, Gender Studies, Human Rights, Genocide and Holocaust Studies and Financial Economics sequences. Students may only get credit for one sequence.
