Pomona College is a great place to go if you're looking for a small, personalized college experience. The faculty are great and there are few "bad" faculty members. You do find them, but for the...
Faculty is friendly and accessible, but administration officials are aloof or, at best, condescending; opportunities for the non-privileged are few and nonexistent, especially when it comes to...

I wish I knew How easy Pitzer classes are
I wish I knew Nothing. Once you get in and decide to come, they take great care of you. Freshmen are in sponsor groups, which serve as a friendship network for the first few days as you meet people. Some spo gros are really close, and others are not, but it was good to have an automatic group of friends for the first week.
Another awesome thing is Every weekend, students receive an email that lists all the activities and parties planned on and off campus for the whole weekend. The freshmen get to go on an oreintation adventure (aka small vacation) during the first week. The dorms are huge. The food is great. Everyone is nice. You learn a lot in your classes, but they aren't super hard. My list could go on and on :)
