    Prospective students should be aware that CMC is geared toward extroverted students, whether in the classroom or in social life. Small class sizes make it easier to interact with the teacher and other students, and it makes it more difficult to hide from the teacher. Furthermore, students should be prepared for more rigor than in high school; everyone was near the top of their class in high school, so the academics have been adjusted accordingly.

    Most incoming freshman are new and come from all over the United States and abroad, so meeting knew people is a guarantee. Don't be afraid to try new things- everyone is new, so just put yourself out there! If you are looking to work hard, play hard, and have fun while attending one of the most rigorous schools in the country, CMC is the place for you.

    Don't decide not to come to CMC simply because you aren't a gov or Econ major. I am pre-med at CMC and it's not always easy but there is plenty of support for people off the beaten path!

    Don't be intimidated by the fact that there are five colleges located within the Claremont Colleges. Each college has its own personality and the smaller size of Claremont McKenna gives a homey atmosphere. I feel safe knowing that I don't have a far distance to walk at night from my friends dorm to my dorm. Also, be sure to take advantage of the wonderful Wilderness Outdoor Adventure trip in the summer because you meet tons of incoming freshmen and make many new friends.
