Claremont McKenna College was founded in 1946 soon after World War II ended as Claremont Men's College. CMC was founded with the mission to foster leadership in its students in the fields of government, business, and international affairs. The school became coeducational in 1976 and was renamed after Donald McKenna, a founding trustee, in 1981. Its mission has stayed the same, as reflected in the College's motto, "Crescit cum commercio civitas," or "civilization prospers with commerce."

As a residential community, student life is centered on campus and four years of housing is guaranteed. Claremont's dorms are divided into 3 regions: North Quad, Mid Quad, and South Quad. In addition, the student apartments sit on the East edge of campus, and are occupied primarily by seniors. All dorm rooms are attended to by housekeeping staff every week.

North Quad comprises Appleby, Boswell, Green, and Wohlford dormitories, which were the campus's first dorms. In north quad, every room opens to the outdoors instead of opening to an interior hallway. North quad rooms are all doubles grouped into suites of four rooms that share a bathroom. North Quad is the center of the social scene at CMC.

CMC's Mid Quad is home to Beckett, Benson, Berger, Marks, and Phillips Halls, which feature long interior corridors, double and single rooms, large shared-bathroom facilities, and all-dorm lounge areas. Adjacent to Mid Quad is Badgley Gardens a green space just south of Beckett Hall, where commencement was previously held. Due to the construction of a new dorm on Badgley Gardens, commencement has been moved to Pritzlaff field, behind Bauer Center, on the east end of campus. Claremont Hall, completed in 2008, is the newest dormitory with space for 109 students. The three story modern building is the first LEED Silver-rated dormitory on campus and will include a computer center on the first floor. The tallest buildings in Claremont are "The Towers," Auen, Fawcett, and Stark Halls, which make up South Quad. Each tower has seven floors with approximately twelve students per floor. Each floor has a common area and a large shared bathroom, and there is an all-dorm lounge area on the ground floor. Stark Hall, the newest of the South Quad dorms, is substance-free. Auen and Fawcett are currently undergoing complete interior renovations (Summer 2008).

Senior Apartments

The Senior Apartments lie to the east of the college's athletic facilities and to the west of Claremont Boulevard, and are divided into four buildings numbered 651, 661, 671 and 681. Each apartment is divided into four bedrooms and two bathrooms, and an apartment application must have four names on it. Until recently, half the apartments were reserved for men and half for women, and apartments were allotted based on credits. However, in 2005 the college abolished the 50/50 male/female ratio and began to assign apartments strictly on credits, which has had the effect of skewing the ratio slightly toward the female side. In any given year, most of CMC's 260 - 300 seniors can live in the apartments, though due to limited space some must live in the dorms.

Living in the apartments is considered highly desirable amongst CMC's senior class. Seniors get the chance to live with three friends of their choice, and do not have to worry about potentially obnoxious underclassmen. They also have the option to stay on a meal plan and eat at one of the 5-C dining halls, or cook for themselves. Apartment dwellers do not get the maid service of the dorms, but they do get a cable hookup, which the dorms don't have. Noise levels are more manageable, and tend to be quiet during much of the week and in the days leading up to thesis, and loud from Thursday to Saturday. Most parties and social events at the apartments take place between buildings 661 and 671 or on the "dunk hoops" (a small basketball court with hoops that are 7 feet high). For other uses, see Cable (disambiguation). ... This article is about the thesis in academia. ...

  • Many incoming freshmen participate in W.O.A.!, or "Wilderness Orientation Adventure." W.O.A.! is a student-run preorientation program. Options include backpacking, camping, and rock-climbing at Yosemite, canoeing down the Colorado River, and beach camping at Catalina Island. Each trip is led by current students and a member of the faculty or alumni. W.O.A.! allows incoming students to develop friendships and get a sense for the college community before the formal beginning of their college careers.
  • The "Madrigal Feast" is an annual dinner held in the Marian Miner Cook Athenaeum. Both current students as well as alumni typically attend. Guests are treated to a medieval-themed feast, complete with wassail, and a spirited musical performance put on by other students in medieval dress.

Several of Claremont McKenna College's traditions are water-related:

  • Unlucky students get ponded (thrown in to one of the two fountains located on campus) by their peers on their birthday.
  • At noon on the due dates of senior theses, the students turn in their theses to the registrar, after which they are given a bottle of champagne by the class president. The students spend the remainder of the afternoon in the fountains at the school, drinking, singing, celebrating and enjoying the warm California sun.

The Consortium

All five colleges are part of the Claremont University Consortium, also known as the 5 C's. Together the campuses cover over 300 acres and enroll 6,000 students. In addition there are over 3,500 faculty and staff and more than 2,500 courses available. Student life revolves around the five colleges as they all interact socially and also share seven dining halls, four main libraries, and other facilities spread throughout the campuses. Notable facilities include: The Claremont University Consortium administers the Claremont Colleges system in Claremont, California. ...

Students attending Claremont McKenna can enroll in up to 2/3 of their classes at the other four colleges, and can also major at any of the other colleges if the major is not offered at CMC. This is the general academic policy at all five schools, and is meant to give students the resources of a larger university while still maintaining the qualities of a small, liberal-arts college.

Academic programs

General education requirements

Although its specialty is public policy and economics, Claremont McKenna College requires students to complete courses in natural and social sciences, humanities, and foreign language. Generally, most CMC students take introductory government and economics courses, calculus or discrete math, a course in both physical and biological science, physical education or participation on a team sport, a third or fourth semester equivalent of a foreign language, and at least several other humanities couses including literature, philosophy and religious studies, as well as other social science classes in psychology and history.

First year requirements

Literature 10 - Composition and Literary Analysis

This introductory literature class covers all the major literary genres and is designed to improve each students critical thinking and writing skills. The specific works studied and course format varies depending on professor. There are plans in the Literature department to eventually phase out this class as a requirement and for the first year in 2006, students with an appropriate AP score in English may substitute any literature course for their Literature 10 requirement.

Civilization 10 - Questions of Civilization

Question of Civilization was designed to provide a unifying experience of Claremont McKenna students while fostering the exploration of universal thoughts and ideas. Directed by Prof. Robert J. Valenza, each year a core set of text is chosen for all section of Civilization 10, with each professor free and challenged to add his/her own insights or works to the course. Although not common in all sections, Prof. Valenza encourages the Civ faculty to provide interaction through discussion. Many students, though far from most, find this one of their most cherished CMC experiences. The course will be discontinued beginning Fall 2008.

Study Abroad

Nearly half of CMC students study abroad. Another popular option for off-campus study is The Washington Program. According to the program's website, "CMC's program is rooted in a full-time internship and a serious discussion of contemporary political issues."[10]


Claremont McKenna's curricular emphasis is on its social sciences, particularly economics, government, international relations, and organizational psychology. Two in every five CMC students majors in either government or international relations. Also well known is its version of the Oxford-style Philosophy, Politics, and Economics major. Other multi-disciplinary majors include management engineering, philosophy and public affairs, science and management, econ-accounting, biology-chemistry, and environment, economics, and politics (EEP). CMC also offers the Robert A. Day 4+1 BA/MBA, in which students receive both their BA from Claremont McKenna and their MBA from the Drucker School of Management at Claremont Graduate University in 5 years. Claremont McKenna announced in September 2007 the biggest gift ever to a liberal arts college: $200 million donated personally by alum Robert A. Day, to found a program on campus known as the Robert Day Scholars. The program consists of undergraduate courses as well as a fifth year MA in finance, though the undergraduate program would consist of economics, finance, accounting and psychology courses. CMC's science program is offered through the Joint Science Department of Claremont McKenna, Pitzer, and Scripps Colleges. The Joint Science Department has been offering a new double year-long introductory science class [2] to allow more flexibility than the former 3 year-long introductory biology, chemistry, and physics courses that most science majors must complete. Philosophy, Politics and Economics (PPE) is a popular interdisciplinary degree which combines study from the three eponymous disciplines. ... B. A. redirects here. ...

Over the years, a rivalry has formed between the opposing sports teams CMS (Claremont-Mudd-Scripps) and PP (Pomona-Pitzer). These teams, however, mostly consist of students enrolled at Claremont McKenna and Pomona, which has intensified the rivalry between these particular neighbors. Recently, the rivalry has spread off the field and into classrooms and parties, making the rivalry not just athletic, but social and academic as well.

The Claremont McKenna golf team ranked first among NCAA Division III teams according to Golf Digest, and 17th overall. The rankings are based on the "Balanced" category which is "for students who place equal emphasis on school and sports."[3]

The Campaign For Claremont McKenna

  • Claremont McKenna is currently undertaking the largest campaign ever initiated for a liberal arts college. The Campaign, officially announced in March 2008, aims to raise $600 million by 2012. Plans include a 100,000 ft² academic center designed by Rafael Viñoly, as well as renovations to dormitories, new athletic facilities, an expanded faculty and enlarged student body.

On July 1, Claremont McKenna issued a press release reporting that Henry Kravis of KKR gave $75 million. The college has named the academic center after him. [13] Rafael Viñoly, a world-famous architect, was born in 1944 in Uruguay. ... Henry R.

  • The Campaign for Claremont McKenna calls for commitments in five priorities:

• $110 million for students: need-based financial aid and merit scholarships, internships, research, speaker series, and other experiences

• $110 million for faculty: chairs, research, and new curricula

• $100 million for facilities: new buildings, renovations, and master planning projects

• $200 million for the Robert Day Scholars Program[14]

• $80 million for The Fund for CMC: operating costs [15]


  • In 1998, five CMC students -- David Ehrich '01, Matt Grossman '01, David Alvillar '01, Devin Erhardt'01, and A. J. Prager '01, registered Claremontmckenna.com as an internet domain name. The students allege that President Jack Stark and later Pamela Gann threatened them with legal action and judicial boarding for violating the college's trademark rights. Administrators demanded that the students turn over the domain name in exchange for a reimbursement of the $150 domain registration fee. The students discovered that the college did not have a trademark on its name and refused. After a 2 1/2 year battle, officials agreed to pay $120,000 to fund a series of fellowships to foster entrepreneurship and civil liberties. Gann also signed promises to fund the fellowship annually and to pay $50,000 over ten years for the student-operated http://www.cmcstudents.com. It is unclear whether Gann followed through on these promises.Read more here
  • On the evening of March 9, 2004, after attending and speaking at a campus forum concerning a recent spate of racially insensitive incidents, Visiting Assistant Professor of Psychology Kerri F. Dunn reported that her car had been vandalized and painted with racist, sexist and anti-semitic slurs. In response the Claremont Colleges cancelled classes the next day (after 9/11, classes were not cancelled, critics point out), and a series of demonstrations, candle-light vigils and community meetings were called to address the threat posed by an alleged and previously unknown group of violently intolerant students. Subsequent investigation by the City of Claremont's police department and the FBI revealed that Dunn had, in fact, slashed her own tires and applied the insulting phrases to her own vehicle. She was subsequently found guilty of filing a false police report and attempted insurance fraud. She was sentenced to one year in prison and ordered to pay a fine of approximately $19,000 in restitution.
  • On September 27, 2007, the College announced a $200 million gift from alumnus and trustee Robert A. Day '65 to create the Robert Day Scholars Program and a masters program in finance.[16] CMC literature professor Robert Faggen sent a letter signed by several other literature professors to President Gann, saying they are concerned that the gift will "distort the college into a single focus trade school."[17]
