History

Pitzer was founded in 1963 as a women's teaching college by Russell K. Pitzer (1878-1978), a California citrus magnate, philanthropist, and Pomona College alumnus. In April 1963, poet and visionary John W. Atherton was hired as Pitzer's first president, and over the next seventeen months he recruited students, faculty, and trustees and constructed Scott and Sanborn Halls just in time for the fall 1964 semester. During the College's first year, students and faculty created the curriculum and the school's system of governance. The College graduated its first class of students in 1967 and became co-educational three years later.[3] Womens colleges in the United States in higher education are American undergraduate, bachelors degree-granting institutions, often liberal arts colleges, whose student populations are comprised exclusively or almost exclusively of women. ...

The Reba Taylor Stover Memorial Fountain in the Smith Campus Center courtyard at Pomona College during the inauguration of College President David Oxtoby Pomona College is a private residential liberal arts college located 33 miles (53 km) east of downtown Los Angeles in Claremont, California. ...


That first academic term began with ten professors and 153 students from sixteen states and five countries. In the words of President Atherton:

Pitzer was built of dreams -- and firmly rooted in the Claremont village dump. Born from a mystical union of the Claremont Colleges, the unborn infant drew its earliest nourishment from the cast-off detritus of generations of Claremont citizens. The big yellow bulldozers leveling the mounds for Scott and Sanborn Halls turned up bedsprings and baby buggies -- all the effluvia of the early pioneers underlay the educational hopes of the wonder child who came to transform the world. We certainly weren't short of expectation. But like most healthy infants, we soon began to kick with our own desires. We thought a new College with 'an emphasis on the social and behavioral sciences' had a mandate to change the universe.

Contemporary architecture characterizes the majority of Pitzer's buildings, several of which were designed by Gwathmey-Siegel following major donations from Eli Broad, a member emeritus and former chair of the Pitzer College Board of Trustees.[7] A notable exception is the Grove House[1], a California Bungalow built in 1902 for a local citrus grower during the height of the Arts and Crafts movement.

Pitzer is currently engaged in a multi-million dollar Residential Life Project to significantly improve and expand the facilities of the College. While overall enrollment has remained stable, there has been a surge in the number of students desiring on-campus accommodations and construction of new residence halls has become the hallmark of the Project.


As per the most recent college strategic plant the Residential Life Project is to be completed in three phases over the next 10 to 15 years. Phase One, which included East Sanborn, North Sanborn, Pitzer, and Atherton Halls, was completed and occupied during September 2007. When aims to accommodate approximately 93% of the student body on-campus with the completion of Phase Three of the Housing Master Plan during the next decade. Unlike many other members of the Claremont Colleges, Pitzer currently has no plans to increase student enrollment.


The completion of Phase One of the Housing Master Plan received widespread publicity through local and national media outlets and Robert Redford and Ed Begley, Jr. participated as keynote speakers during the opening celebration. Pitzer College expects that each of the new residence halls will receive LEED GOLD Certification by the United States Green Building Council.

Academics

The Claremont Colleges

As a member of The Claremont College Consortium, Pitzer students have access to nearly all facilities available to students enrolled at the other colleges (e.g. the Athenaeum at Claremont McKenna College, Malott Commons at Scripps College, Jay's Place/former 'mudhole' of Harvey Mudd College, and the Rose Hills Theater at Pomona College), in addition to all facilities administered by the Claremont College Consortium. The Marian Miner Cook Athenaeum. ...


Much of student life revolves around the five colleges, or "5C's." Pitzer College, Claremont McKenna College, Pomona College, Scripps College and Harvey Mudd College all interact socially, but also share dining halls, libraries, and other facilities spread throughout the adjoining campuses. All five colleges are part of the Claremont University Consortium.


Any student attending Pitzer can enroll in classes at the other four colleges, and can complete an off-campus major in the event that the concentration is not offered at Pitzer. 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.


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.
