Welcome

Welcome to the Bay Area Chapter of the Claremont McKenna College Alumni Association. There are more than 1,600 alumni in the greater San Francisco area.  The Bay Area Chapter works in partnership with the Silicon Valley Chapter to engage alumni in the region. 

Mission

The mission of the Bay Area Chapter is to offer events throughout the year that enable alumni to meet each other and to stay in touch with Claremont McKenna College. We are always looking for new activities, so let us know if you have a great idea for an event. 

Chapter Programming

Tennessee Valley to The Pelican Inn Hike
Sunday, November 14 | 11:30 a.m.

Come hike one of the most classic trails in Marin with Professor George Thomas, Burnet C. Wohlford Professor of American Political Institutions. We'll start at the Tennessee Valley trail head and climb up the Coastal Trail for some beautiful views of the ocean and Marin Headlands. We'll continue along the ridgeline and then drop down into Muir Beach via Pirates Cove Trail, where we stop by The Pelican Inn for some hearty snacks and beverages.
