Back to School and Back to Life on Campus–with Help from You
It’s a happy time to have the campus community back together,
and especially to have students on campus once again this fall semester after a year and a half of remote learning and online activities and connections. Getting reacquainted with life on campus, attending class in person and being prepared with all that this nearly post-pandemic state requires to succeed is made better by the longtime support of Sagehen alumni and families like you. Returning and reconnecting as students explore how to move forward and follow their dreams is inspired and strengthened by gifts from our Sagehen community, which ensure access to the tools, resources and programs today’s students need more than ever inside and outside of the classroom. Please consider supporting current Pomona students with a gift as they get back on course and continue their journey with the Pomona educational experience. Give today.
