Founded in 1887, Pomona College is one of the nation's premier liberal arts colleges. Located in Claremont, on a campus where ivy and palm trees coexist under habitually sunny skies, Pomona offers an environment for intellectual development and personal growth that is second to none. Its approximately 1,600 students--evenly divided between men and women—enjoy comprehensive curricula in the arts, humanities, social sciences and natural sciences. With a student-faculty ratio of 8-to-1, students have the opportunity to work closely and collaboratively with professors who are also top scholars in their fields. Students and faculty challenge each other in studios, laboratories, classrooms, and co-curricular activities, and everyone benefits from the energy generated by the assemblage of sharp and eager minds.
The Rembrandt Club is an integral part of the College’s world-class art departments and programs, and includes many Pomona Alumni among its members. The faculty, staff and students of Pomona’s Art Department, Art History Department , and Museum of Art are closely connected with the Club, with professors and students presenting their cutting-edge projects, giving behind-the-scenes tours, and consulting with the Club when they need help for grants and special projects. Club members who receive training can also become docents for Pomona’s special collections. It’s a mutually beneficial, exciting relationship.
