Classism at Pomona

A recent column written by a Pomona student discusses classism on campus and the popular Claremont Class Confessions page featuring the five Claremont schools.

“The classism I noticed in real life was more subtle than it was online, ranging from stereotypes about the working or lower class to a generalized sense of animosity toward those attending full-ride. Above all, I sensed a level of pronounced apathy toward class discourse. Amid the mandatory discussions about race and gender-based violence during orientation week, class seemed left out of the campus-wide conversation.”
